Do you enjoy picnics? If so, read and organize a picnic for yourself, your family and friends.
Step 1. Pick a nice setting for your cookout
Nearby parks, roofs, beaches or country houses etc. These are ideal places. As a general rule there should be a flat area for you to sit and enjoy your picnic.
Step 2. Create invitations for those you want to invite to the picnic
Make sure the invitations have your name, the picnic location, and the time. Add additional information such as whether your guests can feel free to bring what they want to eat, share transportation, etc. Be sure to include a phone number for RSVP.
Step 3. Distribute the invitations
When all your guests have confirmed whether or not they will attend your picnic, make a guest list so you will know how big your picnic will be.
Step 4. Prepare the food
The classic picnic foods are: sandwiches, fruits, salads, chips, cookies, hot dogs, pies, vegetables, fruit punch, lemonade, soda, and bottles of water. Simple and easy to eat foods with your hands are more convenient to eat and serve. Remember you can be creative and make your picnic memorable. Try exotic foods like tapas (bread and dips), olives, and cheeses. Visit your nearest supermarket to get ideas.
Step 5. Pack your picnic basket
Coolers are very practical for storing food. Remember to pack a picnic blanket, disposable plates and cups, silverware, knives, spoons, garbage bags, and whatever else you think you'll need. Napkins are very important. Some people even carry portable chairs and tables.
Step 6. Dress for the occasion
Dress something comfortable and if it is hot wear something loose, baggy clothes. Remember to wear repellent and sunscreen.
Step 7. Now go to your picnic spot and prepare the place
Arrives early. However, if you want your guests to choose a picnic spot, have a gathering where people gather before heading off to the perfect spot. Remember to wait for everyone to arrive before you start looking for the place.
Step 8. Wait until the guests arrive
Greet them and enjoy the day.
- Food lids can be very handy to keep insects away from food.
- Make sure you are allowed to use the picnic area you have chosen. If you can make reservations, it will be a better idea.
- Make sure to remember to bring your picnic blanket or chairs if you plan to bring.
- Being in the sun can damage your skin. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and stay out of the sun whenever possible.
- Don't litter, depending on the rules, there may be fines and the costs differ from place to place. You can endanger animals, too. Locate the garbage dumps in the area so you can collect all the garbage in bags and deposit them conveniently.
- Please use hygienic methods to serve food, no one wants you to touch their food with dirty hands.
- Don't feed the animals.
- Don't stress too much about making the picnic arrangements. Picnics are supposed to be fun, so don't stress over anything.
- Some of your guests may be allergic to some of the foods, keep that in mind.
- Keep insects away from food. Make sure you have mosquito repellent if it is in a place where there are many trees or a lake.
