Summer Picnic Ideas

Today, we’ve got such a fun and exciting inspirational post for you guys! What’s more exciting than a summer picnic? A lovely summertime day date with your service member. A fun outdoor day with the kids. A girls picnic brunch with your ladies. Either way, it’s going to be so much fun getting your basket of goodies ready for a truly stylish picnic thanks to Honeysuckle!

Fruit & Cheese

Simple, classic and elegant. Grapes and strawberries are a great choice because they’re not messy and they go really well with smoked cheddar and gouda.

Salads

Packing salads in jars keeps them fresh and prevents them from getting squashed in transit. Try a fresh green salad, or even a pasta salad jar.

Sandwiches

They’re customizable and pack easily; and you can bring a variety for people to choose from. Let’s take a look at Honeysuckle’s amazing-looking chicken pesto sandwich, wrapped in parchment and twine – for some rustic pizazz.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ciabatta
  • 1 tbsp. pesto
  • Mixed greens
  • Grilled chicken
  • Swiss cheese
  • Roasted bell peppers
  • Tomatoes

Dessert (of course!)

Cookies and brownies are a great choice because they’re easy to pack and are convenient finger foods. And chocolate.

Don’t forget the drinks

If you’re out with your friends or your service member, some sparkling water and champagne are a fun treat to enjoy on a sunny summer day. If you’re bringing the little ones along, some juice boxes are a great alternative.

Final touches

Real plates and silverware add a rustic and homey touch to your picnic. Cloth napkins will add some elegance and brightness to your meal. A bouquet of flowers will be the cherry on top to a perfect day out. Have a splendid picnic!
