Summertime Picnic Ideas

Posted on

There’s nothing more summery than a picnic on the beach, or in a sunny patch at Golden Gate Park (if the fog lets up for a minute). In order to have a stress-free outdoor meal experience, we’ve got some tips and tricks for keeping your picnic cool this summer.

  1. Blankets are a must. Nobody likes sand in their food, or wet pants from sitting on damp grass. If you’re short of a blanket, a fitted full size (or larger) sheet will do the trick if you’ve got four weights to anchor each side. Coolers and backpacks work wonders as weights, also creating a “wall” to keep sand out of the eating area.

  2. Keep everything cool! The best part about a good summer picnic is the feeling of cracking open an icy cold drink when the mercury is rising. Also, chilled food poses less of a risk for salmonella.

  3. Share the load! Have each couple/family/individual bring something specific and eat family-style. That way you’ll have all the benefits of a feast with none of the effort.

Catering for a party requires much more than just preparing food. We prepare, transport, heat, serve, and clean up after food. We’re sure you’d agree that your role as the host of an event would be better utilized mingling and directing, rather than worrying about the food. Let us take care of that for you! We do Private Party catering in the San Francisco Bay Area, Corporate Catering in Silicon Valley (94302), and events all the way from Mountain View to San Francisco – call us today on (650) 961-3300.
