Spring-inspired Picnic Baskets and Ideas

 

Easter Picnic Baskets

 

Just because you’re going outside, it doesn’t mean you have to dispense with the wonderful springtime décor you’re used to putting on your dinner table. Picnic baskets help you bring along the pretty linen table cover or find a more outdoor-friendly one in pleasant spring colors. Use clay plant pots for centerpieces and fill them with spring flowers or even some colorfully-wrapped chocolate eggs or other Easter candy. Another good idea for centerpieces are those small Easter-themed buckets you can find at the craft or dollar store. You can also fill those with Easter grass and candy and let the kids take them home at the end of the meal. Another idea? Buy small unpainted wooden birdhouses, paint them and decorate them in spring motifs.

 

If you’re really into decorating, head to the surrounding trees and drape them with white or pastel tulle, extending it from limb to limb. It adds to that light, airy look and serves to create a beautiful backdrop for your picnic. Any of our picnic baskets can be an addition to your Easter Picnic.

 

Picnic Foods

 

When thinking about the menu for a spring-inspired Easter picnic, it’s logical to want to incorporate the foods that you’ve come to associate with your traditional dinner. That’s okay. Many of those foods translate well to picnic foods and can easily be packed up in your picnic baskets for transport to your favorite springtime location.

 

Bake the ham and bring it along. You can slice it up when you arrive at the picnic site. Just make sure you bring along a cutting board and sharp knife. Sliced pineapple is a great accompaniment to ham or make some yummy pineapple stuffing. (See recipe below) Remember to bring along some carrots (if the Easter Bunny left some behind!), either raw with dip or cooked. And how about a nice green salad featuring the season’s fresh produce? Don’t forget a few different kinds of dressings so your guests have a choice. Colored hard boiled eggs, of course, are a must as well. Set them in tiny plant pots, put the name of each guest on the pot, and use them as place cards that also double as part of the meal.

 

For dessert, mini fruit tarts are ideal. You can probably find them at the local bakery or supermarket or make them yourself, filling them with berries, kiwi, peaches, and other springtime favorites. Consider other light bites as well, like lemony Madeleine cookies. If there are lots of kids at the picnic, make a “funfetti” cake – they’ll love it! – and decorate it with pink or yellow frosting and lots of flowers.

 

Pineapple Stuffing

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

4 eggs

5 slices bread, cubed (stale bread is best, or leave it out to dry)

 

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the pineapple and fold in the bread. Place in a greased 2 qt. casserole and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
