What to pack for a picnic on the beach
Creativity helps keep the romance alive. Romantic getaways or activities are a must-do. Planning a picnic sounds easy, but the small details are what make this occasion special. For example, the type of food cooked, the selection of drinks, the location, and most importantly, the quality time spent with your companion.
Basket or Backpack
First of all, try to find a medium size basket or backpack. It has to be portable and with enough space to carry your food, drinks, and props for your beach dinner.
The food is crucial on a picnic date. Avoid food that is difficult to eat or requires a lot of attention. Deli sandwiches, pasta, fruit, canapes, cheese, or salad are good options. Serve this food on plates or eat them directly from the food containers.
Wine & Drinks
Add drinks to complement your meal. A bottle of champagne or sparkling wine is suitable for the occasion. Do not forget to carry bottles of water to stay hydrated.
You will need where to sit and to place all your things on the sand. A big-sized blanket or towel can be the option. This way, your clothes, and food will remain clean. Chairs and pillows are optional if you want to be more comfortable.
Food containers are the best to pack food for a picnic. There are a lot of sizes and forms that can adapt to the type of food you will cook. Be sure to grab forks, spoons, and knives for your dinner.
Sunsets on the beach can be windy. The decoration, in addition to the battery candles, can add a romantic and comfy touch to the date to make an unforgettable evening.
Pick up all your garbage when you finish dinner. Plastic bags can be convenient. Keep the beaches clean.
Plan that particular night to put a smile on your Valentine’s face. You do not need to prepare an extravagant picnic dinner. The romance is in the small details. Have fun!
