DIY Insta-Worthy Picnic

Somehow it’s already August?! Quarantine time feels like it’s in hyper speed, but we're not letting go of summer yet. As places are opening up (or not, depending on where you are), we still want to ensure that we are having socially distanced fun, and what better way than with an old-school picnic. Want to up your game and make your picnic IG worthy? Don’t worry- we’ve got you covered.

STEP 1: Attire

We love how COVID has given us an excuse to wear sweats 24/7, but sometimes we just want to switch it up! Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Keeping it casual? Try biker shorts and a vintage style sweatshirt. Want to spice it up? Try incorporating pastels into a shirt and skirt, or throw on your favorite summer dress.

 

STEP 2: Location

Obviously the ideal picnic photo op is at the beach, but not all of us have access to the ocean (yet). Other ideas include parks and nature preserves. Just make sure the place you’re interested in is accepting visitors, and make sure to take the proper precautions. Don’t forget your mask and Clean Dream hand sanitizer! 

 

STEP 3: Decor

We almost all have a blanket or towel laying around that we can use, but we’ll link a couple of our favorites below. Grab a couple throw pillows, a wicker basket, and some flowers to complete the look. We love going to Trader Joe’s for inexpensive flowers!

STEP 4: Food & Drinks

If you’re traveling far, pack foods that will stay fresh at room temperature. We’re thinking fruit, crackers, pasta salad, and a dessert. Our go-to picnic drink is fresh and fruity. We’ve been LOVING adding new Sour Watermelon Foxy Drops to our drinks for an extra boost of vitamins. Keep your eye out for our Watermelon Mojito recipe that's on the way. Trust us, you’ll want to try it.

Pro tip: Minimize waste by using cloth napkins and glass straws.

 

STEP 5: Indulge & Enjoy

Snap a few cute pics of your set-up, and then you’re ready to eat! We highly recommend unplugging from your phone for maximum enjoyment while you sit in nature.
