Outdoor picnic essentials.

finally, we made it to our second picnic ever! i know, in the picnic post last year i mentioned that we would have more of picnic all summer long and it was kinda crazy that we had not! haha! it was actually our very first and only picnic in 2017. not because it was terrible, no. on the contrary, it was such lovely day for us! i had to admit, that the activities got us so busy last year, and due to moving we still tried to manage of arranging the new house. so the days we do get off we tried to at least go for a stroll at park without any preparation like picnic or something, which was actually no big deal.

last week, we decide to have another picnic, already in spring! i mean, picnic is the best way to welcome the hottest season of the year! it really feels like summer already over here and the weather was actually being cooperated to us. yay! i was really looking forward to it and we were very happy that it was a success! we were so full after the picnic, although we did not have much to eat. haha! but we played badminton, too, which means, a lil dessert never hurt anyone, surely!

i put together a list of few practical picnic essentials for you to consider when planning an outdoor picnic, because who doesn't love checklist? especially for some occasions, checklist can be really helpful!

for toting and seating..
picnic basket / picnic rugs

for serving..
napkins /plates / utensils
mason jar / cutting board / flowers

for cleanup..
tissue / trash bags

something to eat/drink..
lemonade / berries / baguette

other essentials..
sun hat / card games

of course, it depends on where you want to have a picnic. we usually go to our local park on the weekend afternoon and sit under the trees so it's not too hot for us. we also haven't had any mosquito bites one bit so bringing insect repellent and sunscreen was not too necessary. but these are the items i will always pack for our picnic, so we might add or replace similar items to the list if we want to go to other place every now and then, like adding sunglasses, burgers (recipe coming soon on the blog!), or even beret instead of sun hat.

are there some of the items from the list you always pack for your picnic? and where do you like to go to? i wish you all a lovely weekend and have fun for your next picnic!

until then.
