Today we have simple special picnic ideas that can easily elevate a meal outside into a party! I want to share the one we had recently.
And I’m joining some friends with their fun tips. Links at the end of the post.
Choose A Good Spot
Originally, I thought this would be a good place overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in Fort Mason but it was so windy that our son Thomas, and I couldn’t get the table cloth down!
Plan B: We both remembered a sheltered spot in the Presidio that we found on one of our walks. There is a picnic table underneath weeping willow trees.
Bring a Table Cloth
An easy, quick way to elevate your picnic is with a pretty table cloth.
NO SHAME: Order Your Favorites From The Deli
We shared three different sandwiches…variety! We like Lucca Deli here in San Francisco. I just tied some twine around the sandwiches and added some fresh rosemary (the making it special factor). I also ordered chips and potato salad. Since we had sort of an Italian theme going here, we picked up San Pellegrino, Italian lemonade, and Italian beer. Super easy.
Pack It With Flair
Don’t Forget Music
We love a little portable Bluetooth box (similar)! We even take it out on family walks sometimes (Thomas’s idea).
Bring Some Playing Cards
On this day we played Gin Rummy and I won 🙂 (Hardly ever happens).
It was such a great day…special but so easy.
Enjoy Your Simple Special Picnic!
