Next, you'll need to fill the picnic basket to the brim with snacks, goodies, love notes, and drinks. There is something about eating food on a picnic that is always exciting! Bring food items that are snack able and shareable, such as shrimp cocktails, a veggie tray, cheese and crackers, fruit, soup, mini-sandwiches, chocolate kisses, dips and more. Half the fun of a picnic is being able to seductively tease and feed each other, so make sure you have snacks along with your main course.

Spread out a soft picnic blanket at your romantic picnic location. Whether you're dining at home or heading out to a romantic spot, be creative with where you set up your feast. Play some music softly in the background, light some candles, bring a portable propane heater (if picnicking outside), and remember that blankets, pillows, cushions give you fluffy support and make a cozy nest for love-birds. Feed your man sample bites from your delicious spread of picnic food, and sneak yourself a few kisses in between. The best way for a woman to make a Valentine’s Day picnic even better is to offer a visual picnic as well. Wear your favorite outfit, buy new lingerie, and slip on your hottest heels for a sensual dining experience.
