Are you looking for some inspiration for your next picnic gathering? Look no further! We consider ourselves to be picnic connoisseurs, and we’ve put together a list of some fun and fresh picnic tips for your next outdoor gathering.
1. Serve fruit-infused water for your guests. We like the idea of providing a unique and tasty drink! Not everyone will like it, but it’s a nice alternative to lemonade or soda. Try out this Cucumber Herb-Infused Water from A Couple Cooks.
2. Provide disposable cutlery in a festive way. Disposable cutlery doesn’t have to look cheap. Why not wrap it up with a napkin and use yarn that goes with the tablecloth color? Your guests will be impressed, and it’s easier to grab and carry than individual pieces!

3. Consider using a form of eco-friendly dinnerware. Many people who host picnics don’t think about the garbage aspect – usually some type of foam or plastic plate is used, and we all know that it’s not necessarily the most environmentally-friendly thing. There are many companies that manufacture dinnerware made from completely natural materials that decompose very quickly. We get our eco-friendly dinnerware from Patra. We love the way it looks and the fact that it’s made out of palm leaves!

4. Think of fun ways to present your food. Get creative with your picnic buffet! Wrap your sandwiches in colored paper and label what they are. Use cupcake liners to portion out sides of chips, pretzels, or other snack-like foods. Any why not put that watermelon on a stick? This method of serving watermelon makes it easy for people to grab and eat.
5. Serve up a tasty and easy-to-eat dessert. What’s a picnic without dessert? Try something out of the ordinary that your guests may not have seen before. It doesn’t have to be complicated or fancy, but think outside of the box! We like this Almond Roca (similar to a chocolate bark) from Recipe Girl.
6. Have All Occasions Catering/Bubb’s BBQ cater it! We love working corporate and family picnics, and we’ve got a variety of menus that will fit your picnic needs. Whether it’s our Picnic Menu or one of our Bubb’s BBQ Menus, we’ve got the food aspect covered. Head on over to our website and take a look now!
