Memorial Day weekend is widely regarded as the unofficial start of summer, and a lot of people (myself included!) will celebrate by packing up a picnic and heading for a local park, beach, or their own backyard. If you’re among the masses, make sure you take along some promotional picnic products to make your outdoor meal a successfully delicious one.
When you’re going on a picnic, there are a few things you can do ahead of time to make sure you’re well-equipped. Cutting, packaging, and otherwise preparing your food before you leave will make the meal easy to assemble when hunger strikes. You’ll also want to check the weather forecast beforehand so you can be prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws at you, and don’t forget to apply sunscreen and bug spray as soon as you arrive at your destination.
Here’s a checklist of promotional picnic products you might want to pack up before you hit the road:
__ Blanket, towel, or tablecloth for a clean “table” away from home
__ Easy-to-use (and easy-to-clean) dishes, silverware and drinkware
__ Cooler, especially if you’re taking a day trip or planning on having cold drinks or dessert
__ Wine/bottle opener, ice cream scoop, pizza cutter, or whatever kitchen utensils you may need
__ Picnic basket or cooler to keep food and supplies organized
__ Trash bags and extra food storage containers for leftovers
