A picnic is a party that does not require a big budget. You will have a good time and experience many great moments. We are used to picnics in nature, but have you ever had a picnic in the house, on a balcony or in the garden? Probably most of you will say no. Now is the right time to give it a try!
Considering the prescribed measures for limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus infection, you should leave the house only when really necessary – to go food shopping, to the bank, pharmacy or work. Spend the rest of your time at home.
Of course, it is advised to go for a walk in nature, but only alone or with your partner/family. Until you can hang out with your friends again, it may take a while. But the more we stick to the measures, the sooner the situation will improve.
Today BesserMe gives you a complete guide on how to organize an unforgettable picnic with your loved ones in the house or in the garden!
Why waste an old ragged blanket that always sits in a corner unused, when you can give your imagination a chance and plan a dream picnic?
Use all those wonderful fabrics that you keep for special occasions. It can also be a tablecloth that you use only for festive moments.
After all, a picnic does not always have to be done on the floor or on a blanket. Why not use old wooden boxes, in which only dust has accumulated, as a table, and use the cushions you have in your house as chairs?
If you are preparing a picnic in the garden, bring a deck chair to relax on after the meal. If the sun is strong, you can use a light fabric (such as a sheet) as a canopy.
You can use Instagram or Pinterest to find a bunch of magical ideas to create an unforgettable picnic.
Food and drinks
Be creative when choosing food and drinks for your picnic. Don’t buy ready-made products, but take your time and prepare everything yourself. It will taste so much better!
With healthy food and the love you put into your dishes, it will taste good to everyone. You can find inspiration for delicious and healthy dishes here on BesserMe.
Bring almonds, grapes, berries, etc. in addition to cheese. Make the most of what you already have at home. With some berries or leaves of mint, you can decorate your dishes wonderfully.
Olives and hummus are always a delicious idea as well. Don’t forget to make great drinks and maybe even bring a bottle of champagne to the picnic. This can make your picnic very glamorous in no time.
Don’t forget to bring something sweet for dessert as well, even if this is simply a nice fruit basket.
Games for the little ones
If young children are also coming along to the picnic, organize a variety of ball games, bats and other props, or simply take a walk amongst nature after lunch.
In terms of food and creative content, a picnic with younger guests is different from one involving only adults. Bring healthy munchies for the little ones.
If you are picnicking outdoors and outside of your own backyard, check the safety of the location. Is there a river or cliffs nearby? Do I need to bring insect repellent spray? Forest clearings or flat meadows are best for a safe picnic.
Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture all the wonderful picnic moments with your loved ones.
Given the current situation, only have a picnic with the people from your household. Do not forget to wash your hands regularly and disinfect your hands and work surfaces. Think about your own health and the health of others.
