As the spring weather rolls in, at least for us on the west coast, the time for picnics is arriving. It’s hitting almost 80 degrees here in Phoenix, making the afternoons ideal for lunching and spending time with friends. Today on The Gab Cast, I am chatting with one of my best friends Audree Lopez from the style and beauty blog SimplyAudreeKate.com and we break down all the essentials for a perfect picnic outing.
Listen to find out the important things to consider before you plan your adventure. Then, you’ll get tips from Audree on what outfits to wear. Head over to her site to check out the fabulous outfit collages she put together for style inspiration. I think this one is my favorite! I am all about fun patterned pants and white converse.
I also give you a few ideas about what to include on your picnic menu. Picking three simple main foods will keep your luncheon low-maintenance and then adding in a dessert will be the perfect sweet ending to the meal. Also, having the right gear and details will really make any picnic go smoother. A few summers ago, I made a collage of all the essentials: blankets, to-go wine chilling bags, gingham napkins and more that you can view right here. Hopefully it brings you some inspiration for your picnic outing!
It’s been so fun continuing The Gab Cast and I hope you enjoyed today’s episode. Comment below with your favorite things to bring or eat on a picnic! You can also tweet @gourmet_gab and @simplyaudreek to give us your feedback using the hashtag, #thegabcast.
