My idea of a perfect picnic
This is the post where I describe how to have the best picnic ever in a poetic book worm kinda way :)
Well me and my favorite sisters ever went down to my grandfathers old farm Saturday for what we politely called a picnic.
It wasn't a food based picnic that's for sure and we didn't even have basket we only had snacks but here's how to have the perfectly planned picnic...
Pick your Destination
first you'll need to figure out where you're going to do it your backyard, the beach, a field, the best place is always an open space check the weather ahead of time to make sure that the place you're having your picnic at won't be like 20 degree's with breezes so cold it's like biting ice!
Pick your stuff
Find a lovely blanket to lay your food on (ours was a floral imprint) if you're having your picnic in a field like the one above I'd suggest two blankets a think wooly one for below and a thin one for above.
Now decide what you'll keep your feast in a basket or a backpack (we used a backpack best for field picnics but it you're having a larger meal I'd suggest both)
Pick out your Feast
Prepare your favorite easy sandwich (I like ham with real mayonnaise and fresh lettuce)
Then a beverage (We had Snapple Peach Green Tea but you could have lemonade, sweet tea, or whatever you prefer) Fruit is essential but crackers and cheese are a good substitute :)
Plan your Activities
Now you'll need to keep your guests entertained you could play games, or write or whatever you think they would like (we chatted and read books to each other)
And there you have it a poetic practical picnic. Please tell me if you liked this :) and if you'd like to know how to have the perfect tea click on this link http://connieistherubberbootgirl.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-perfect-tea.html Storyteller does an excellent job of explaining.
