A Romantic Picnic for Two: What to Cook, What to Bring, and What Not to Do

There’s no question that our all-time favorite summer date would consist of a picnic, enjoyed in the golden evening light, under the dappled shade of an old oak tree. We’d sip on Champagne, nibble on salty nutscitrusy olives, and fresh summer salads, and when the sun sets and the fireflies appear, we’d light the citronella candles, indulge in chocolate brownies and fresh strawberries, and lie back stargazing until we couldn’t keep our eyes open any longer. This picturesque evening may sound simple to set up, but there are many pitfalls that could trip you up along the way of planning this romantic picnic. We’re here to guide you through every step of the way and to help you have the most beautiful al fresco date night — while the evenings are still warm enough to do so.
