Warm spring weather beckons us outdoors—and whether we’re beaching, biking or playing at the park, all that fun is sure to work up an appetite! That’s why we think now is the perfect time for a picnic.
When it comes to planning the perfect outing, from basket to blanket and everything in between, we’ve got you covered. Just read on for a few easy Peach Valley picnic tips!
Picnic your way
When you think “picnic,” you might think of a red-and-white checked blanket and a grassy lawn lit by the afternoon sun—it’s a delicious image, but it’s not the only way to picnic this spring! For example, if you have activities planned for the afternoon (or simply want to savor your favorite breakfast foods), a picnic brunch is sure to satisfy you and your crew. You can picnic at the park or bring the fun to your favorite beach, enjoying the sea breeze as you dig into delicious snacks and sides. You can even pack a picnic for the late afternoon, easy to savor as you soak in the “golden hour” sunlight and refuel after a day of outdoor fun.
Because they are so easy and informal, picnics serve as a great way for family and friends to get together! Set a time and place to meet up or call each other whenever the picnic cravings strike—you can even make it a potluck-style picnic, so everyone brings their own unique dish or dessert to the table—or, in this case, blanket!
Bring comfy touches…
Speaking of that blanket—picnics are all about casual, effortless comfort! So take a few minutes to pack some comfy, homey touches. In addition to a classic blanket (sand and water-wicking options are great for days spent at the beach), you can also bring a few pillows and even ways to the beat the heat, such as spray fans.
… and fun activities
Now that you’ve achieved a comfortable environment, bring along some fun activities to enjoy! Depending on your interests, these could be anything from card games and puzzles to frisbees and sports gear. And to set the perfect atmosphere, you can even bring along some music—a nifty, Bluetooth-powered outdoor speaker works well here—or make it your own with a guitar from home! There are really no limits to how you enjoy your perfect picnic outing.

Freeze fruit juice for a refreshing treat
Speaking of staying cool, freeze your favorite fruit juice and toss the ice cubes into fruit-infused water for a light, refreshing drink to enjoy during your picnic!
Pack it in, pack it out
To keep your picnic space clean and enjoyable during (and after) your time there, bring along a few gallon-sized plastic bags. In addition to keeping your food sand or grass-free before you eat, they can hold wrappers and other trash when you’re through. Just toss them into a garbage can on your way out and you are good to go!
Also, a pack of wet wipes is great to have on hand—unlike napkins, they can help with sticky hands and won’t go flying all over the place with a sudden gust of wind.
