  TOP TIPS...For the picnic menu

  • We often share food ideas for a picnic ...every group, or family, taking food, then pooling it. This can turn into a magnificent feast. 
  • There are times when we delegate courses… someone to just take easy appetizers, or just main course, someone else to take dessert and so on... you will find this works really well too and can take away the pressure of thinking of all the food. It gives you a chance to be really creative and to work on something special.
  • Of course, in these strange Covid-19 times, in many areas you will find sharing food is not allowed, so here is a chance to make a special picnic with individual baskets or containers full of interesting these parcels. Think of the clean, healthy, fresh air too!                                       

... How about special parcels of picnic food wrapped in a cloth, or clean pretty tea, towel tied up with string... for each person individually, when you’re not sharing platters. Fill with fun picnic food... everyone will have their own table cloth from this picnic basket.

As this site progresses I will expand on these picnic ideas…and then such things as the best picnic baskets and folding picnic table and much more.

And also show you some truly helpful picnic food ideas to help you plan with ease.

I hope you will share your favorite picnic ideas and places as well. …So keep watching this site and book it into your Favorites.
