Now that summer is here many families will be planning family picnics and parties. It is good idea to have plastic party plates available for those last minute picnics. Keeping yourself prepared will make it easy to head out to the park and enjoy a beautiful dinner outside with family and friends. It is smart to put together a basic picnic basket that you can grab when the mood strikes to have a meal outside. You can find nice sized picnic basket at many big box retailers or outdoor stores. Nothing says summer more than a picnic in the park.
It is also a good idea to pack plastic disposable tableware in your picnic basket. This will help with cleanup as dirty items can just be thrown in the trash. Minimizing the amount of work that needs to be done makes picnics in the park more enjoyable for everyone. The disposable tableware tends to be very reasonable priced and is ideal for a summer barbeque in the park. You can also pick up a variety of disposable napkins and drink ware. The items you do not use can be kept in your picnic basket ready for the next outing.
Make sure you are prepared for food preparation; it is good to include BBQ tools, tasting spoons and serving utensils. It is also nice to have a good selection of both hot and cold foods including hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and coleslaw. Keeping the menu simple but having variety is the key to a successful picnic. It is also a good idea to bring a small cooler for beverages and to store the meat before it is cooked.
A well stocked picnic basket with disposable plates and tableware will make having a picnic a breeze with little or no clean up required. Take advantage of summer’s great weather with family and friends.
