Whether it is a family outing or a day date with your significant other a picnic is the ideal way to spend a fall afternoon. Grab a blanket, pack a picnic and head outside this weekend to take in the splendor of the crisp air and fall foliage. I’ll show you how to plan the perfect fall picnic date to celebrate everything fall has to offer!
A picnic is the perfect date idea, especially during the fall when the weather begins to get cooler. Unlike a crowded restaurant, picnics are the perfect setting for an intimate afternoon in a tranquil atmosphere. With the hustle and bustle of busy work schedules and kids’ activities, a fall picnic is perfect to get away and reconnect with your significant other.
And, it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take up too much of your time planning. A simple autumn picnic packed with comfort foods, hot cider and Chinet® products is the ultimate fall date idea. I’ve teamed up with Chinet® to show you how to plan the perfect fall picnic date.
How to Plan the Perfect Fall Picnic
Find the Perfect Spot
Do a little research and check your town or nearby areas for a romantic fall spot for your picnic. Look for locations that have shade trees, fall foliage and aren’t overcrowded.
Check the Weather Before You Go
Fall weather can change quickly, so make sure you check the weather before you go and wear layers. Don’t forget to throw in an extra blanket so you can cuddle if the crisp autumn air gets too chilly.
Set a Cozy Tablescape
Just because you aren’t headed to a 5-star restaurant doesn’t mean you can’t make this date extra special. Bring cozy blankets to spread out your picnic and to sit on. Set the “table” with Chinet® Classic White™ products for easy cleanup. Chinet plates are known for more than just their durability, they are also both elegant and environmentally conscious, which makes them ideal for our outdoor picnic.
Pack the Perfect Picnic
The key to a perfect picnic is simplicity. Enjoy the flavors of fall and pick up fresh fruit and cheese from the deli to create a simple charcuterie board. Make sandwiches ahead of time, or grab them from your favorite sandwich shop before you head out. Be sure to throw in ice packs to keep the food cold and empty containers for leftovers.
Be sure to throw in a thermos of piping hot apple cider or coffee to warm you up. I love the Chinet® Comfort Cup®, these insulated hot cups are the perfect to-go cup that will keep your beverage nice and warm throughout your picnic.
Relax and Enjoy
The best part about this creative fall date is enjoying both nature and the company you are with. Make sure you plan plenty of time to lounge around and talk, read a book, take a hike or simply listen to the trees swaying in the breeze.
