If you happened to be strolling around a Paris park last weekend, you may have run into Bradley Cooper cuddling with his lady love, model Suki Waterhouse. The two were seen canoodling and enamored with one another on the green grass, enjoying a beautiful afternoon with the locals. This celebrity couple has the right idea: pretty scenery, a good book (which Vanity Fair first identified as Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov), and the right company make the perfect date.
Take a cue from the celebrity couple and host your own Parisian park picnic for you and your special someone to enjoy. While it may not be with a model in Paris, we can promise it will still be pretty special. Follow these tips to recreate their perfect date:
Pick a spot:
If you can’t jet-set to Paris for a quick afternoon lunch, just be sure to choose a truly picturesque spot.Your date will completely appreciate the time you took to plan this afternoon get-away, and it won’t be long before you and your date are cuddling like the starlet couple.
Pack a picnic:
This is the only place the couple went wrong; there are no reports of them packing anything to nosh on! But don’t fret, we have plenty of tips for you to reference when it comes to bringing food to the park, especially when it is just for two. Be sure to pack fresh crusty bread and spreadable Brie if you are going for a Parisian picnic.
Bring a book:
Cuddling on the grass is great, and bringing a book on a date isn’t a faux pas — it is actually pretty endearing. Take the hint from Cooper; bringing along a classic read for you and your partner to enjoy will give you both something to talk about and a way to fill the silence when you are, ahem, otherwise engaged.
Be sure to snap a few stolen moments with your honey while you’re out and about. Not only will it be super flirty and playful, it may come in handy down the road for a personalized gift for the holidays.
