The Perfect Picnic

April 1, 2011 by  

Includes…No ants, no flies, no mosquitoes and  a Man you love

The weather changed out outdoor picnic plans (as it often can) to an indoor enchanted evening

With spring coming up…. and the flowers starting to bloom….we want to get outside and enjoy the nice crisp warm weather…. by the water….. with your man….

But….. it was doing this instead.


So… you move your perfect picnic inside! Grab some candles…. a bottle of wine..

Add your wine glasses and silverware

Pick up the food you know your man loves.  To me… making a perfect picnic is keeping it simple, easy and low cost (this meal cost $18.50. The wine I already had at home) and I love that!  Picking out his favorites,  let’s him know that I was thinking specifically of him.

Make sure you have a quilt to put down for your picnic.

And begin to enjoy your evening

Start with the cheese and crackers

Enjoy your meal with the chicken, cole slaw and ham salad that were easy and taste great.  I found these Reese Cup Cupcakes for dessert …. he loves Reese Cups (and so do I)

Oh yum

This was my perfect picnic…. with my perfect man

I don’t know if a picnic could get any more perfect than this!


Thank you Better Homes & Garden for the Perfect Picnic!

I love your comments!

I was supplied with the picnic basket, plates, plastic wine glasses, and Better Homes & Garden Quilt along with being compensated for the meal.
