One of my all-time favorite things to do in DC in the summer is enjoy a concert on the lawn at Wolf Trap. Warm summer air + good friends + great entertainment + delicious picnic food = a fabulously festive time.
There’s really no better date spot in the summer than Wolf Trap. So whether it is a first date, “date night” with your spouse, or even just a time to hang out with friends, create the perfect evening by putting together the ultimate picnic ensemble.
Wolf Trap kicks off its summer season tonight, so what better time to share some tips on creating a super-chic picnic?
Start with the blanket — quite literally the foundation of any good picnic experience.
I adore Yumi & Laurie Blanquettes. They are 100% organic cotton and super plush — great for cozy-ing up!
If you are looking to impress with a custom blanket, check out this do-it-yourself version from Design*Sponge. The vinyl is a smart way to make sure you stay dry if the ground is at all wet.
Then, set the table…
I bought this table in a bag for my father a couple of years ago for going to the beach. It makes eating a picnic meal so much more convenient.
Reusable plates, flatware, and cloth napkins are not only a must, but are eco-friendly. Here are a few fun options:
Don’t forget the bubbly for toasting to a great evening.
Pack it all up.
I love so many of the products from Picnic Time. This insulated cooler on wheels is perfect for packing all of your picnic food and items.
