Ever since lockdowns began, what we used to classify as a catch-up with loved ones has drastically changed. Our usual brunches and dinners have been swapped out for video calls and socially distanced walks. But, while we adapt to the new normal, there's another way to embrace the change in our social practices: the art of picnicking.
Since lockdown regulations lifted and we're allowed to start meeting in small groups of people from outside our households, why not look to the great outdoors to celebrate getting back to what we used to know (while still adhering social distancing, of course). Now, it's National Picnic Week and we're looking for the perfect pieces to meet with friends over cheese/wine/chic settings for the 'gram.
Below, we've rounded up some of the sweetest picnic finds - from tables that hold your bottle of wine (essential) to the perfect accessories.
Remember, to keep your food easy. Because every picnic can't be a reflection of personal culinary achievement, hit your local deli or supermarket and purchase freshly sliced proteins (turkey, ham, prosciutto, etc.), cheeses, and garnishes. Have them slice up a decent loaf of bread, and you're done. Also, opt for stemless wine glasses where you can.
