Picnics Make For A great Girls Day Out




Share |

A girl’s picnic lends itself well to fun outdoor activities. Furthermore, picnics are enjoyed by all ages, from young professionals who need a break from the daily grind to “Red Hat” ladies who simply want to bask in the sunshine of a beautiful day.

If you and the girls love garage sales, antique shopping, auctions, or bargain hunting, for example, pack up the car and head to your favorite shopping destination. Before you go, scope out an ideal location for an outdoor meal, load up the picnic totes, and be on your way. Parks, botanical gardens, or even benches on a tree-lined street are perfect venues for picnics. All-girl picnics at the beach are also a blast, especially in the off-season when you can have the sand to yourselves. Set up a pretty umbrella, lay out your favorite picnic blanket or mega mat, and sun, fun, company, food and of course the view!

If you’re in a large city and you plan to do some sightseeing or museum-hopping, you may want to kick off your adventure with a picnic brunch. Some museums have courtyards for just that purpose. Or look for a city park that might have a shady grove or pretty lake and spread out a picnic blanket for your meal, like a two-toned pink Breast Cancer Awareness blanket, which benefits breast cancer research. You might also wish to choose handy collapsible picnic totes, bags, or baskets for your excursions, like the smart navy blue collapsible picnic basket for four at Picnic-Basket.com. With great innovative carriers like this one, once the food is gone, the basket folds nearly flat and is easy to carry or store.

Just as important as where you have the picnic is the picnic itself. Take some time to make it decidedly memorable. If you’re using paper plates and plastic silverware, purchase something in a floral print or bright color. Wrap the silverware in pretty napkins and tie them with a ribbon. Use any spare ribbon to decorate the containers. Choose wine totes or wine and cheese sets that have a look for the occasion, like our trendy neoprene totes in a variety of bold patterns or one of our wine and cheese sets in pink or some other light-hearted color. Today’s picnic cooler sets even have plenty of room for some of your favorite flowers so you can create a little ambiance while you dine. Don’t forget to bring along an unbreakable container you can use as a vase.

Picnic Food Ideas for a Girls’ Day Out

When considering picnic ideas look for light and tasty recipes that won’t weigh you down. Cheese, fruit, and wine are always a great starter. Next, continue with some sandwiches. The sandwich is a fun food because there are so many options available. Choose different kinds of bread or rolls and a variety of fillings for your creations, including egg, chicken, and tuna salads; meats with interesting kinds of herbed mayo; perennial favorites like ham and Swiss; or typical tea sandwiches such as cream cheese and watercress.

Side dishes, even those made with mayonnaise or other ingredients that need to be kept cold, are easy to carry along if you have a picnic cooler set. Consider a tasty tri-colored macaroni salad; a spinach salad with walnuts, strawberries and poppy seed dressing; or a colorful broccoli salad with bacon and golden raisins.

Don’t forget to pack your picnic basket with a few scrumptious desserts as well. Simple sugar cookies with pink frosting and some sprinkles go well with a tall, cool glass of lemonade and are easy to pack.
