Did you know that July is National Picnic Month? I love a good picnic, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share some of my summer picnic essentials. My first memories of picnics were with my parents in Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco with some fresh sourdough and salami. My idea of a picnic has changed a bit since then, but it’s always about good people, good food and good drinks. I believe you can have a picnic almost anywhere, whether it’s on the roof of your home or apartment building or at a local park like the La Brea Tar Pits. I do believe in brining a few of my favorite items to make sure that the experience is perfect though.
Here are my Summer Picnic Essentials:
- Make sure that all of your food is in separate containers. I really love the the compartmentalized container that I used in the photos, it keeps 5 different items separated but in the same container for easy transportation. It’s BPA free plastic which is lighter that glass and non-toxic.
- We recently bought a picnic table which makes picnicking on uneven services much easier. Especially if you like to take your picnic to the beach.
- I also really love my insulated picnic basket.
