The ever-talented Carisa of Messes to Memories took the classic picnic gingham and mod-ed it up for us. How cute are her designs?! She is taking our picnic ideas to the next level!

Romantic Picnic Invite

To get your sweetheart really excited for your romantic picnic, we think it’s best to start with an invite. Doesn’t it make you more excited if you know that your spouse has something planned for you?!

Picnic Ideas Invitation for Date Night

Return the favor with this adorable, foldable invite. Simply fill in your info and give some possible picnic options. Your spouse will give it back to you when they have their picks and now you KNOW they will love the food. 😉 No guessing needed—it’s called transparency, people.

Picnic Ideas Invite Food Choices

Romantic Picnic Basket

I know they seem a little impractical, but one of the best picnic ideas has to be an adorable hamper {or basket, but hamper makes me feel classy and old-timey all at once!}. Isn’t this hamper just absolutely perfect??

Picnic Ideas for the Perfect Picnic Hamper

We found this amazing picnic hamper, but there are also so many options online! And while you may not use it every. single. day. That one day a month you pack up a picnic will be made SO much easier… and cuter, which is really the goal. 😉 It’s the perfect place for your food {obviously} but you can also stash a game or any other needed supplies, even the blanket if you’re handy!

Romantic Picnic Wraps

Some hampers will come with plates and cups all ready to go {I mean, wash them first… but they are totally ready, besides that} However if you don’t have utensils we have a cute little pocket you can fold up and in which you can plop your needed cutlery + napkin.

Picnic Ideas Silverware Napkin Holder

We are also FIRM believers in a little bubbly {ok, we do Martinelli’s! So many delicious flavors!} and in making it cute. Don’t forget to dress up your bottle with a wrap!

Cute Picnic Games

You’ll definitely want to include a game or two while you are on your picnic! We love grabbing our favorite card games! But sometimes it’s fun to do something new. Soooo…

Picnic Ideas for Bingo and an Intimate Invite

We’ve included a fun, little people-watching picnic bingo. It’s a race to see who can get 5 in a row the quickest—don’t get TOO distracted from each other, because either way, you’re going to win!

Romantic Picnic Dessert

Take the winner – ok that’s both of you – home for some special time alone in the bedroom.
