Picnics are a perfect way to marry together everything that we love about spring and summer. There’s just something to be said about eating a delicious spread outside that feels extra special! Whether it’s an adventure for the kids, a romantic date for a couple or just some quality bonding time for the whole family, the quintessential afternoon activity has endless benefits.

With the weather becoming more beautiful by the day, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t whip up something delicious in the kitchen, pack the wicker basket, grab the blanket and pillows and make an afternoon of lounging and relaxing in the sun. So this summer, why not grab your closest friends and family and make use of your local park, beach, or garden?
