Gorgeous weather = picnic season! I love going on picnics. There's something special about packing up your favorite bites accompanied by your favorite people and being outdoors.
Here are some of my favorite picnic essentials:
One) A comfy blanket to lay on
Four) My mini Fuji Instax Polaroid camera
Five) A handy ice chest
Six) My favorite pasta salad (recipe below)
Seven) Fresh fruit
Eight) Pellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverages (I love Pompelmo)
Nine) Cute cutlery & paper straws
Don't forget to pack delicious deli meats, cheeses & a French baguette.
