Packing The Perfect Picnic

Fourth of July is right in front of us and we’re ready to pack a picnic! No matter how far you travel to your perfect picnic site you need the right supplies. In my younger days picnics consisted of brown paper grocery sacks filled with food (we were lucky if we remembered paper plates). The older I get the more I consider the comfort and ease of the picnic setting, as well as the appropriate tools for the job.

Ideally you should bring something to sit on, food, plates, utensils, drinks and napkins. Those are the basics. More advanced picnickers might tote along a portable grill, serving bowls and extras such as multiple condiments. No matter what your style it’s always nice to bring a few comforts from home. If you have the space, it’s a good idea to keep your picnic gear in one basket or tote so it’s ready for your next gathering. Here are some fun pieces to consider for your upcoming picnic.
