Planning a Parisian Picnic

Planning a Parisian Picnic

In true Parisian fashion, planning a Paris styled picnic is all about simplicity, sophistication, and of course, joie de vie. The end of the summer season through fall is the perfect landscape for a Parisian picnic. As long as you park yourself under a tree (like we did) you’ll be shielded from any weather unpredictability (like we were… it rained). Go and grab yourself a blanket and a basket, fill them with your favourite French nibbles, send out some positive vibes for sunshine and pack an extra bottle of wine for those unexpected rain delays and friendly run ins with picnic crashers. Little secret, the best part about a picnic is you can really have one anytime anywhere. If you really wanted you can set the scene right in your living room. I won't tell. ;0)

 

Parisian Picnic Checklist:

  1.  Classic picnic basket (we got ours from Home Sense and it includes a table setting for 4)
  2.   Traditional table cloth or blanket
  3.   Variety of French inspired gourmet menu items like sandwiches, breads and cheeses
  4.   Grapes, sliced apples, confiture, chocolate croissants & Macaroons
  5.    Meat and cheese board (for presentation)
  6.   iPod with instrumental café tunes and mini blue tooth speakers
  7.   A couple fun friends
  8.   Chic outfit & Chapeau
  9.    A healthy appetite
  10. Wine…. Lots and lots of wine.

 

Bon Appétit
