Decide what type of picnic to have.

Whether you go with sandwiches, or more bohemian picnic fare, it’s a good idea to plan ahead of time what food you will be taking. Here are a couple ideas to get your imagination going.



While we’re not advising a dry pb&j and apple in a brown bag, sandwiches are a picnic staple. Be creative with your crust! Sourdough, pitas, and flatbread are all good options, and fillings are only limited by your creativity (check out these picnic sandwich ideas from Martha Stewart for inspiration). Be sure to serve a salad or fruits and vegetables to round off your picnic fare.


Teddy Bear Picnic

For the younger crowd, bringing along a teddy bear makes the picnic! Keep the food simple with cheese, crackers, and bite size pieces of fruit or vegetables. Lemonade adds a nice touch to this picnic. Be sure to include dessert, berries and cream, come to mind! For more inspiration, check out Pizzazzerie’s Teddy Bear Picnic Party ideas.


If making a picnic isn’t feasible, do the next best thing and eat your fast food meal outdoors or dine at a Revere area restaurant that provides outdoor seating. Thank for reading our post today.
