Plan a Women Owned Picnic

Plan a Women Owned Picnic

There is something about the spring and summer that calls us to spend as much time outdoors as possible; new plants sprouting, warmer weather, and longer daylight hours. Pick a shady spot and some items from this Women Owned guide to plan a picnic for yourself, family or friends!

Build your own Women Owned picnic with this guide and show your support for women entrepreneurs.

Things You’ll Need:

Bags

Pack items in separate bags to keep the cool items together and the warm or room temperature items together. Use a cooler bag or one of the many colorful totes from Wholesale Boutique to transport all your items. TIP: Pack your bags in reverse order so you can unpack what you will need/eat first on top.

Instead of using plastic zip-lock bags that are not friendly for the environment, use LunchSkins reusable sandwich and snack bags to organize all the food.

BlanketS

You can’t enjoy a picnic without a towel or beach blanket to set up on. The Madison Collection has beautiful generously-sized luxury towels and blankets in a variety of colors.

Bringing some kiddos along? A travel crib is a great tool for taking babies to a picnic. Throw on a cute, machine-washable slipcover from Coverplay to keep things neat, and drape a towel over the top of the crib to offer little ones extra shade.

Utensils

Use Yumi Eco Solutions kitchen utensils and products. Their products are all eco-friendly, from bamboo nesting bowls to compostable plates.

Paper Towels, Straws and Napkins

Messes are almost guaranteed at a picnic, but with TreeFree Paper Products napkins, paper towels and tissues on-hand, cleanup will be easy. Don’t forget to bring some bamboo paper straws for all those beverages too. Tree Free Paper is a line of treeless paper products from True Green Enterprises so you can feel good about protecting the environment while you are enjoying the outdoors.

Beverages

Iced tea is a staple of picnics everywhere. Grab Milo’s iced tea and lemonade to drink on their own or make a pitcher of Arnold Palmers. Create some batch cocktails or mocktails to bring along with these Summer Women Owned Cocktail Recipes.

Wine is also a great addition to a picnic whether for brunch, lunch or a sunset dinner. Check out our guide to Women Owned wines (and perfect snack parings) here.

Bring the wine in a CopperTops flour sack bottle wrap. Afterwards, this wrap doubles as a kitchen towel for serving or cleanup.

Food

Easy recipes are key for a well-planned picnic. Start with a few of these quick Three-Ingredient Women Owned Appetizers.

Bring these Summer Recipes for fresh salads and a simple summer entree. Discover other Women Owned food products to bring here.

SUNCARE

Don’t forget to protect your skin as you enjoy the great outdoors and sunshine! Get all-natural sun protection you can trust from California Baby. Their allergy-tested, fragrance-free formula is designed for a baby’s sensitive skin. You can also get bug spray, aloe, and sunscreens for the whole family.

Goddess Garden Organics also has bottles of certified organic sunscreen and after-sun care infused with relaxing essential oils, perfect for lounging on the beach.

Games & Other Fun

Take your picnic up a notch with some games and music! Nod Products waterproof playing cards are perfect for the outdoors. Nod Products also has a water bottle with a built in Bluetooth speaker as well as a solar powerbank to keep all your gadgets charged.
