Ambience
Is this a romantic picnic for two or a family outing? Set the tone for your picnic and go with a theme. Spice up the space with colorful plates, napkins, glasses, and utensils. Pair a patterned tablecloth or blanket to complement the theme. Don't forget about lighting! Candles can heighten the feel of excursion while serving to ward off pesky bugs. Lastly, decorations make a picnic special, here are a few DIY options.

Menu
