As the temperature climbs and the days stretch longer, there’s one thing on everyone’s mind: soaking up that warm weather. And what better way to do it than with a good old-fashioned picnic? 

Picnics encompass far more than simply enjoying tasty food; they involve gathering friends and family together to embrace the beauty of the outdoors. The warm sun hitting your face while simultaneously smelling the bright flowers awakens the senses and brings joy from one person to the next. 

This being said, it’s time to plan your next picnic! Let’s take a look at some local parks to have a picnic as well as delicious recipes for you to make!

Once you have your picnic location, it’s time to plan what you will bring. Check out some ideas from our recipes site below!
