The Perfect Picnic

What’s more perfect for a summertime date than a picnic!? (And who said you need a man to have a date!? Grab your besties and meet at the park for this one!) Whether in the middle of the afternoon or at that golden hour as the sun sets into the balmy pink sky, everybody loves a good picnic meal — and we are no exception!

Avenue 126's Perfect Picnic

It all started with an adorable picnic basket that Megan picked up at Hobby Lobby, and our dainty little dream of having a summery picnic lunch was born. So…we wasted no time putting together what we considered to be the perfect combination of goods to make for a lovely little girl-time picnic.

Here’s what we packed for our little picnic:

-Ciabatta turkey sandwiches
-Fruit (Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and cherries)
-Cheese and Cracker assortment
-Pistachios
-Chocolate (because dessert, duh).
-Picnic blanket (from Hobby Lobby, it was $12.00 with coupon!)
Plates/utensils
-Sparkling Lemonade, Iced tea, and water
-Fresh flowers
-a good playlist

How fun is that!? It’s the perfect way to spice up lunch or dinner in the middle of the week without totally breaking the bank on a big, fancy meal out. And for any of you men reading (no shame!), we think the lady in your life wouldn’t hate it if you surprised her with a little picnic like this. Actually, we know she wouldn’t hate it. You’re welcome in advance!

Happy picnicking and, once again, happy summer!!
