When choosing a place for your picnic date, here’s a rule of thumb: pick a place where you and your date totally feel comfortable at. It can be at the beach where you first met, or at the park where you first set eyes on your bae.

For sunset lovers, picking a place where you can clearly see the sunset is a great idea. Having a date on a botanical garden will be memorable too, especially during the springtime when flowers are in bloom. No matter what place you pick, make sure that it’s a place where you two can enjoy each other’s company and make great memories together.

A picnic date is more casual compared to a fancy dinner date so you can dress down if you want. Pick a comfortable outfit, which you are most confident wearing. Whatever you choose to wear, make sure the fabric is light and breezy.

Consider switching tight jeans to a pair of shorts, or a tight dress to a cute romper. Skip the leather shoes or high heels, too. Instead, wear comfortable sneakers or flats.

Your picnic date just won’t be complete without mouth-watering food. Choose food that is easy to carry around, with a small chance of it being spilled while inside a picnic basket. You can bring sandwiches, sliced fruits, chips with dips, or chocolate-coated marshmallows. Honestly, there is a lot you can choose from.

To make the food extra special, prepare them yourself instead of just buying from the supermarket. You can make your grandma’s special home cooked cookies or salsa dip. Now that will surely impress your date. You can also cut fruits or mini-cakes into hearts using cookie cutters.

For drinks, bottled or canned ones are your best friends. It can be as simple as bringing canned soda or fruit juice or going all out by having champagne.

One of the wife’s favorite things to do every summer is to go to parks and have a ‘romantic’ picnic, she’s all about that lol! But over the years I have to admit that I've grown to love It too..it’s just good quality 'us' time and I can never say no to that So what we started doing is always keeping a blanket and pillows in the car and that way whenever we feel like having a picnic all we have to do is pick up some grapes, crackers and our favorite cheeses and we are good to go! To be honest, cheese is all we need to sustain ourselves we don’t care if it’s with grapes or on a pizza😉 @dairyfarmersofcanada . . . #StrongerWithProtein #partner #ad #lifestylepost #picnic #cheeseboard #cheeselover #dairylover #toronto #torontocouple #foodgram #healthyliving #summer #friyay #tgif #like4like #romanticpicnic #bae #love #yummy #gainz #stayfit #canadianblogger
