Since gatherings may look a little different this Summer, we thought it would be fun to create a list of birthday picnic ideas to make your next “quarantine birthday” a special one.
Throwing a Birthday Picnic?
If you’re looking for creative ways to celebrate a loved ones birthday, having a classic outdoor picnic is one great option. Keep it simple with just a traditional checkered picnic blanket and good food or go the distance with picnic invitations, DIY decorations, and outdoor activities for the kids.
This round up is chock full of inspiring ideas, recipes, activities, printables and more to get you ready for your next birthday picnic no matter the size of the gathering.
Planning Your Picnic
The first thing to consider is the where? You don’t necessarily have to go far from home but always be sure to check the by-laws in your area for rules on outdoor gatherings. And once you’ve determined the where, consider the theme, will it be a relaxing boho picnic?, or a a fun and colorful tropical picnic?
It seems only fitting to send actual invitations for a traditional birthday picnic in the park. Yes, I mean actual paper, say what? 😉
Decorate Your Picnic
There are so many creative DIY decor ideas to help make your next picnic a memorable one. From upcycled tin can utensil holders, colorful summer garland, and a repurposed denim picnic blanket to pretty mason jar lanterns, these craft ideas will keep you on budget.
Drinks at a Picnic
Aside from the food, tasty drinks at a picnic are one of the most important elements of a good picnic. Choose from any one of these cold, refreshing Summer drink recipes to enjoy!
What comes to mind when you think about a picnic? For me, it’s an assortment of delicious and easy to pre-make salads, wraps and sandwiches.
