Planning a picnic is pretty easy. You'll need to set the date, check the weather!, select your location and pack your picnic basket.
I can't think of a better way to spend the day with the family, catch up with friends or enjoy a Romantic Picnic for two.
LocationYou can choose a secluded location, a nice peaceful spot on the river, or a bustling public park. Beach picnics are fun too or a country picnic - take the kids to the farm for the day.
