Pack a basket to picnic in style. Select a cool spot downtown. If the common spots don't attract you, pick up a less crowded one.
Picnic pack up:
Irrespective of the sight you select, make sure you provide a varied enough selection of food. And that too in sufficient quantities to support the lunch and afternoon snacks as well. No need to go in for a gorgeous pack up.
Even, simple foods can make the most elegant picnics. For instance, the smoked salmon sandwiches, a pot of lumpfish roe, smoked fish pate, some special cold meat pie, spicy meatballs, a pizza slice that cuts into fingers neatly, bowls of dip and bought chips to dunk.
You can go liberal in filling your basket with cold fried chicken, individual pies, spicy meatballs,
Simple cloth idea:
For a large picnic, decorate an old sheet with lots of simple appliqué flower shapes in different colors.
Stitch ribbons of red, white and blue on the corners and halfway along the sides, then tie these to meat skewers or tent pegs and hammer them into the ground to prevent the cloth flying away.
You can also paint some gravels in red white and blue. It's a nice time pass before getting started with the food. Lay them on all corners to weight down the cloth.
