Spread out a blanket, kick back, have some good food, play games, and enjoy a long summer day outside.

When you are done with the picnic, use the basket to keep a tablecloth, plates, utensils, and napkins stashed in your car.

Make your own food containers and decorative accents to add a special touch to this outdoor get-together. Place mini honey jars out on the cheese platter for guests to enjoy. The little jars make a great take-away gift, too! Keep chips and other snacks stashed away inside paper bags stamped with these scrumptious sayings.
