Plus, preparing for those cold weather picnics with the proper tips, picnic basket and accessories, can add convenience and comfort, making your picnic enjoyable no matter the weather.
Start your rainy day picnic by creating a warm retreat for cold and worn out guests to eat at after activities. Pitching a canopy tent and placing ample tables and chairs under it are a great start. Choosing a canopy tent with attachable walls to block the breeze will ensure a dry environment suitable for eating and a picnic blanket or two for cold laps is a definite crowd pleaser! Propane lamps or outdoor heaters will add an inviting appeal for board games and charades after the meal.
Hot meals are a great way to stay warm and add more to your picnicking experience, especially with the advances in outdoor cooking technology. The Vulcan Portable BBQ Grill & Cooler on Wheels Combo, for example is excellent for outdoor grilling. This amazing little grill neatly tucks away into the storage unit of a large cooler. Also attached is a zipped storage pouch filled with BBQ accessories, including tongs and a spatula. All together, the BBQ grill and cooler combo safely rests upon a durable wheel-away trolley that will follow you anywhere your picnic adventures take you!
Keeping hot beverages on hand with the right thermos is the next best thing to hot food. If children and teens are around, hot chocolate is a caffeine-free way to get them warmed up for the next round of fun. Coffee is the usual selection for most adults, especially with flavor shots and a beautiful coffee tote set. Whether you like your coffee functional, elegant or convenient, a coffee tote set is also great for conversation and a warm atmosphere.
Layered clothing and warm, cozy, waterproof blankets are a must on cold day picnics. They're great for cuddling up on with a partner and a book, or for star gazing. At a family event, you may be waiting for a show, or a concert so be prepared with your portable outdoor seating and cozy picnic blankets. Bundle up with the kids under an umbrella and surround yourselves with a cove of comfy blankets while enjoying a great conversation with your happy, content kids! And don't forget that your layered clothing keeps you prepared in case the clouds decide not to linger at your cool-weather event.
Now that the cool weather is settling in on us and Father Winter begins his yearly rounds, you have all the tips and gear you need to enjoy a safe, memorable picnic experience. So tackle the cold weather head-on and create picnic memories of warmth and cheer with those that mean the most to you!
