In track with the recent “foodie movement”, this fun theme opens a realm of fun ways to incorporate unique options for your food selection. Putting together a gourmet picnic dinner is a great way to serve dinner, try putting it in a paper bag, a basket or a to-go box for that picnic feel. Keep it interesting! Pies, chips, cheeses, crackers, bakery breads, fruit, veggies, sandwiches etc. with these simple foods there are so many ways to twist things up while still keeping it simple and enjoyable for everyone. Try grilled corn on the cob or panini’s and let your guests pick out their fillings for the sandwich.
Pies, cakes, and cookies oh my! What’s a picnic without dessert? We’re ditching your traditional wedding cake and cutting the pie. Having a variety is great especially for a group. Think about fruit flavors- blueberry, cherry, raspberry, and so many options a variety is a given for this dessert. Berry shortcake is a perfect picnic treat along with cookies and cupcakes! We love the idea of giving guests a mini pie as a delicious favor to take home.
