Tips for an Unforgettable Picnic in Bergen County

August 3, 2015

As the temperature gets warmer, spending time outdoors becomes even more appealing. One such activity that you and your loved ones may want to do during summer is to have a picnic.

Picnics are not just about eating outdoors. If you truly wish to have a blast eating and spending quality time with your family outdoors, here are a few tips that can help you achieve that goal.

Think of a picnic as an outdoor party. And just like any party, picnics require careful planning and organization in order to be successful. One of the key things that you need to plan for is the location of your picnic. From there, you can proceed with your menu and the people to invite.

Determining the location can also help you determine which type of food is suitable as well as what accessories to bring. You can opt for a popular camping ground or beach or have a Bergen County limousine service bring you to Van Saun County Park.

If you have kids coming along with you for the picnic, you should consider the amenities available in your chosen location. Also, consider the activities offered by the location and whether it is pet-friendly, if you are thinking of bringing Fido along.

Consider the people who will joining you. If elderly folks are joining you, your primary concern is to provide them with comfort. That may mean bringing an umbrella or comfy chair for them. On the other hand, if your party is comprised mostly of young kids, you’d want to create a menu of kid-friendly fare.

In terms of food, what can be deemed as picnic-friendly fare will vary from one person to another. However, you almost cannot go wrong with cheese, bread and cured meats as these are easy to pack and eat. The key thing to remember when you are planning your menu is that you’d want to minimize packing, prepping and cleaning afterwards. You may also have to take into account that some types of food are not suitable to eat when you do not have a table around.

Another important thing to remember about food is that you have to ensure that you store these at the right temperature to avoid spoilage. Bring a cooler if you are thinking of serving salads and raw meats.

Apart from food, you should also bring other stuff which will ensure your family’s comfort during the picnic. These include insect repellants, hand sanitizers and sunscreen.

And to further ensure your comfort during your journey to your picnic location, why not hire a limousine from BBZ? By taking a limo to your picnic location, everyone gets to enjoy the outdoor affair and join in the fun.
