How to Plan a Picnic
With the warm, nice weather approaching, many people are looking forward to enjoying the outdoor environment this season. Just about everyone loves a picnic. These celebrations can be held anywhere for any reason. Picnics allow people the chance to relax and have a good time with close family members and friends, sharing and creating memories with a delicious meal.
There are many times when these celebrations could add a special touch like enjoying an outdoor concert, watching fireworks, or playing on inflatable bounce houses or water slides from Astro Jump
. Here is your ultimate guide on how to plan a picnic.
Choose the perfect location
Location is very key for the perfect picnic experience. An outdoor setting can be a wonderful way for you to take in the weather and enjoy the scenery, and is also the perfect opportunity to have a meal out in the open with your friends and family. Keep in mind the number of people coming, activities that people will be engaged in such as sports, and the long term comfort of the place when choosing a location. Nearby parks, beaches, backyard, or rooftop or farm house, among many others, are ideal choices.
Plan for your picnic equipment
Once you have decided on the location, plan on getting the necessary equipment and supplies for the picnic. Renting the equipment for your party is the best option in this case. Buying new ones can be quite expensive and can get outdated by your next picnic or event. Renting the equipment is also ideal for getting unique products including large portable inflatables and catering supplies, among several other necessities. Astro Jump has great party packages that will match your budget, giving you everything from the set-up to cleanup and everything in between.
Create picnic invitations
A picnic with your company colleagues can be lots of fun, but for family picnics, keep it small. In your invitations, ensure that all the important information is included, such as picnic location, time in which the celebration will take place, if there is transport to the location and what to carry and what not to. Ensure that you also provide an RSVP contact number.
Plan and choose the right dishes
When planning for a picnic, it is vital to ensure that the food can be transported and not go bad. Some of the best foods to include in your menu include sandwiches and salads made with sturdy veggies. Lettuce based meals can easily wilt, thus, should be avoided at all costs.
Additionally, the dishes chosen should be easy to prepare at the picnic. You can do all the cutting at home to avoid carrying foods that require a knife at the picnic location.
This will help reduce the stress and hassles and leave you free to enjoy the picnic with your family and friends. Make a list of all the necessities you need to pack and take. Keep your gear packed and ready in the basket or a tote bag so you only need to add last minute items before leaving.
