How To Host: The Perfect Picnic
Today...we're going on a picnic. The weather has warmed up, the farmer's markets in full swing and we want to GET OUTSIDE!
Having a picnic with your friends is so easy...if you're organized. Assume there is nothing at the park so you have to bring it all. If you come prepared, you'll have the most fabulous time.
When I go on a picnic I like to pack a little lunch box for each of my friends so we're not scrambling at the park with serving a lot of different dishes. I make sandwiches, pack up fruit and add a sweet treat.
Nothing compliments a picnic more perfectly than lemonade. I buy a store bought bottle and add in sliced strawberries, lemon rounds and a few sprigs of mint.
The cherries looked so perfect so I grabbed a bag and ditto for the mini apple pie that I found in the Union Square Farmer's Market.
I couldn't resist grabbing a bunch of lilacs to bring along with us. They smelled so amazing and looked so pretty on our picnic blanket.
Since there's a lot to schlep over to the park when having a picnic, I ask my friends to meet me at my apartment so they can help carry all the supplies and we can walk to the park together.
I brought a long a few paper plates, plastic cups and a knife to cut the pie. I also brought a paper bag for our trash and of course blankets and pillows.
We may or may not have snuck in a few cans of bubbly...shhhh. Keep that on the down low.
