Summer Picnics from Bristol Farms Catering
posted on May 18th, 2015 by Melinda Race
With summer about to be in full swing, it’s the perfect time to plan an outdoor picnic! A picnic makes for a great romantic evening, group date, family outing, or a fun afternoon with friends. And there’s a bonus – whether you are having a picnic at the beach, a park, or your own backyard, there’s less of a limit to how many people you can invite, and in some cases, you can also have your canine friends join in. If you’re like me and love dining alfresco when the weather is nice, I have some great tips for you.
On your picnic packing list should be a large blanket. Look for something that has a large enough surface area for everyone to sit on, but is lightweight enough to fold down and fit in your basket with ease. Be sure to bring along outdoor dishware, utensils, and food containers. Our Bristol Kitchens department offers a great selection of paper napkins, high-end disposables, acrylic drinkware, and more. If you’ll be sipping on an adult beverage, our wine department will be sure to have exactly what you are looking for. If you like to keep things eco-friendly, we’ve got you covered! Our catering orders come with a great line of square eco-plates that are available in both a lunch or dinner size option.
Let’s talk food – packing foods that travel well is a must. Each year, Bristol Farms Catering department offers a wonderful variety of picnic meals that are delicious, conveniently packed, and ready to go. Varieties include meals, such as: Lemon Rosemary Chicken, Filet Mignon, Classic Chicken Salad, Pops Medley Sandwiches, Poached Salmon, and our Healthy Alternative Trio. And don’t forget a tub full of cold beverages to go along with your meal.
There are a few extra things that can make your picnic an even bigger success. A Frisbee is a must – you just have to have one. How about a portable speaker to share your picnic playlist? You can also bring along a fun game like a deck of playing cards or Catch Phrase (every member of my family loves to play this game).
It is the simple things in life that mean the most, and the older I get the more I realize this is true. The moments spent together mean so much, and a picnic is a great way to make these memories together.
