We think that it’s possible that if more people took the time to have picnics, the world would be a slightly better place. Dramatic? Maybe, but for our latest Chop Chic, we grabbed some things out of the kitchen and put together some pretty tasty picnic bites for a late afternoon snack. The key to a bomb picnic session is finding the right balance between the set up and spread. We dressed up the layout by using unconventional serving platters, like a tea cup for fried rice, and a vase for the strawberry lemonade cocktail. With candles, flowers we grabbed from the neighboring tree and plush pillows to rest on, late afternoon picnic snackin’ never tasted so sweet.
Since corn is in season first up on the menu is Boiled corn with Parlsey Butter.
Gozie Coker of Coker Creative gave us some useful tips on how to style for a picnic:
1. Use a comfortable blanket and stylish statement pillows.
2. Picnic baskets are a must to hold all the goodies.
3. Some form of entertainment: portable speakers, yummy food and lots and lots of drinks.
4. Never forget the bare necessity: a trash bag!
