Summer picnics in the park: Dos and Don’ts

  • Tips & Tricks
Apr 25, 2018

With summer in full swing, we give you a few dos and don’ts on how to plan the perfect picnic day


There’s a gentle breeze that brings with it the fragrance of summer. There’s laughter, games, plates of food, family time and catching up with friends. Here’s what you can do to prepare for a stress-free picnic.  



  1. Check the weather before stepping out. This will help you pick an appropriate location for your picnic as well – whether you want to visit a spot with a lake or one with green meadows all around

  2. Carry a cooler and a picnic basket. It is a great option and you can purchase one that comes with reusable plates, cutlery and glasses
  3.  Freeze some bottles of water. These will keep the food fresh and as the ice melts, you’ll have chilled water for a refreshing sip

  4. Carry a picnic mat or bed sheet to spread out on the grass

  5. Plan for activities that everyone can get involved with. Frisbees, football, kites or a rope for tug of war. When it comes to board games, pick something that doesn’t have too many pieces or tiny parts which could get lost easily


  1. Don’t leave prep work for the venue. Any chopping and cooking should be done at home and carried in air tight containers. If you’re carrying a portable barbeque, prepare skewers of marinated ingredients at home

  2. Don’t prepare messy dishes like curries or anything with sauces. Avoid food that spoils easily like those containing milk products, eggs, mayonnaise and meat especially fish and shrimp. Food options to consider include tossed salads, finger sandwiches, crudités with a thick dip, chips, easy to eat fruits like apples and oranges, and muffins

  3. Don’t carry carbonated drinks. All that shaking during the car ride can result in a fizzy explosion. Iced tea, fruit juice, sangria, and wine in leak-proof bottles or insulated flasks are good options. If you’re planning to mix cocktails at the venue, stick to those which need at most three ingredients

  4. Don’t overpack. Take only the absolute essential things you need for the picnic. This way, you’ll have less things to look after and more time to enjoy the outing

  5. Don’t litter. Take garbage bags to carry dirty plates and dishes back home. And pack enough wet wipes; you may not have the option to wash up

Avoid carrying snacks that require sauces and curries as it can lead to messy eating. Finger sandwiches, tossed salads and easy to eat fruits are preferable when on a picnic.

Apart from a cooler, carry a picnic basket as well. This will help keep the cold food and drinks away from the dry snacks and can also be used to store plates and cutlery.
