Don’t we all just love picnics! National picnic month in July 2019 is the best time of the year. You’ve definitely prepped your home for the hot summertime; now it is time to have fun. Think about the sunshine, delicious foods and nature walk. Picnics are a wonderful way of seeing the city you live in.

Well, celebrating national picnic month should be easy and fun. Here are a few tips to ensure you have a blast:

Choose a location

So, where do you want to go? Before you send out invites to your friends and family, it is important that you get a good spot. These could be:

  • A local beach or waterfront location
  • Public park
  • Byways with a great scene and picnic tables

If you have space in your home, you can always host at the back or front yard.

Planning the activity for your audience

The more the merrier! You may want to have a solitary picnic but having friends and family join you would be better. Therefore, ensure you come up with activities that will keep everyone entertained. Make people itch to come to your picnic by including activity ideas such as:

  • Card and board games
  • Park BBQ with public grills
  • Badminton, volleyball, croquet, bocce ball, flag football, and Frisbee
  • Duck duck or hot potato for the young ones

Get your menu ready

Another important part of a picnic is food. This means you must come up with a menu. Here’s where you really need to shine. Your menu should, however, be inclusive. It should be suitable for everyone including those with food allergies. If you are not sure of how to come up with a good menu, then simply talk to The Meat Thief.
