As soon as the thermometer goes up and the sun is there, an irresistible urge to picnic is felt. Quickly, we prepare a basket and we leave for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner on the grass! As a couple or as a family, with friends or colleagues, these informal meals are part of the joys of summer, provided they are well prepared. All our tips for becoming the kings of the picnic!

1. For a perfect picnic, unearth a basket of pro

To become the absolute king of the picnic, you must already start by getting a basket worthy of the name, always ready to be filled at the last minute. The most chic picnickers are offered a wicker basket with crockery hanging on the lid, the bohemians choose a straw basket, the ecologists invest in reusable bamboo crockery, pragmatics pile up airtight boxes and small insulated bags in a large backpack and recycling enthusiasts keep all the plastic boxes in reusable supermarket bags ... Everyone has their own style, the important thing is not to be caught off guard at the last moment. A good picnic basket includes: * a tablecloth or tarpaulin with insulating underlay, ideal if the grass is wet! * plates and cutlery (reusable if possible) * a thermos to keep fresh water or hot coffee * cups * airtight boxes

A tablecloth, a basket, dishes, cutlery ...

2. For a successful picnic, don't overlook the details

At the start of the picnic season (which can last until the beginning of autumn), the picnic kings make an inventory of essential accessories for having a quiet lunch outside and feeling as good on the grass at home… Once the "special picnic" stocks are stored in the closet, we are ready for dozens of improvised meals outside! The list of accessories to remember: * decorative paper towels * straws for children * a corkscrew * a multi-purpose knife * small cups * toilet paper and handkerchiefs * an antibacterial gel for washing hands * a trash bag to leave without a trace * a sprayer * sunscreen * a mini first aid kit (disinfectant, dressings, Doliprane, anti-venom ...)

Colorful dishes, straws and glass jars ...

3. Take care of your outdoor decor

Sometimes three times nothing is enough to make your picnic a 100% decorative moment! A small bouquet of flowers, a vintage accessory, a few soft cushions, a tray or simple lemongrass candles transform your tablecloth into a 4-star restaurant! Are you picnicking in the sun? Stretch a canopy between the branches of the trees to create shade elegantly. Do you prefer picnicking after dark? Put lemongrass candles and tealight holders in your basket for a subdued atmosphere ... Accessories that change everything: * cushions * a hammock * a parasol or a velum * a vase for a bouquet of wildflowers * stemware or flutes * a champagne bucket * candles (and a lighter!) * candle jars to hang in the trees * a crate to create a small table * straw hats

A touch of decoration for a perfect picnic!

4. Create "special picnic" recipes

Who says picnic doesn't necessarily mean sandwiches! To feast on eating on the go, we also think of wraps, savory pies, quiches, muffins and vegetable cakes, spreads, kebabs and large mixed salads (to be stored in a Tupperware, sauce apart). Cold meats and vegetables cooked in an aluminum dish can also be prepared the day before. Crunchy snacks are always as successful, prepare carrot sticks, cauliflower florets, cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices! On the other hand, it is better to avoid cold meats and melons so as not to attract wasps, as well as homemade mayonnaise and dairy products which do not keep well away from the refrigerator. In summer, also slide into the cooler bottles of water flavored with a lemon slice, a sprig of mint or some strawberries ... And don't forget the thermos of coffee (with sugars and goblets) to be truly crowned king of picnic !

5. Plan activities to play on the grass

Successful picnics are those that drag on, because we are so good that we have no desire to return! Once the meal is over, it's time for a siesta in the shade and group games ... If you're more in the mood for relaxation, take a book and a cushion. If you are with family or friends do not forget the balloons, skittles, jump ropes and water pistols. In lack of idea? Find our 20 outdoor games to make yourself. With that you should be ready… Have a good picnic!
