Usually all of our hikes turn into picnics at some point because of the amount of food I bring in my pack (something about trails makes me HUNGRY). So when we go on a planned picnic, things get pretty serious around here. I LOVE picnics and like to keep a picnic essentials kit handy (never know when the need will arise) that contains everything you need to enjoy a delicious meal al fresco! Below are my top family picnic essentials:

The Picnic Essentials
1. Sistema Utensil Set, Sauce Containers, and Salt and Pepper Set
Re-usable = less waste!
2. Reusable Dinnerware
Reusable…there’s a theme here 😉
3. Picnic Cloth
Water/spill resistant! …with the baby, I appreciate anything that cleans up easily.
4. Nalgene Bottle
Leak-proof and definitely a must-have to stay hydrated and to carry your favorite beverage on the picnic.
This cooler has held up very well for us! It’s just the a basic thing but I do like to use the pocket to hold some cloth napkins.
1. Silicone Wine Glasses
Non-breakable and flexible so you don’t have to worry about breaking any glasses.
2. Wine Cooling Pack
Keep your wine cold…
3. Ice Packs
And your food colder!
4. Cheese Tray
This portable cheese tray keeps everything neat and tidy inside, including a wine bottle opener!
And on a totally related now, we’re having the BEST weather (aka we’re not melting when we step outside) so I believe Levi and I are off to find a good spot to picnic this afternoon 🙂
