fathers day picnic

Dad might be the master of grilling, but treat him this father’s day with a little outdoor dining experience that he won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy.

The idea of a picnic sounds so wonderful, and with a few key items, a weekend afternoon is all you’ll need to spoil dad and enjoy some relaxed time together.

This picnic has a bit of an italian flair, bodes well in warmer weather, and packs up  nice and neat in case you have a bit of a walk to your picnic destination.

Garlic stuffed olives and proscuitto wrapped melon are wonderful aside some sandwiches served on crusty Italian bread.  Lemonade for the kiddos and a bit of prosecco for the adults both mesh perfectly with this feast. Include a throw, a few appetizer forks for communal nibbling, and a structured basket that can be used as a table to complete the occasion.

You don’t have to hike too far to enjoy a picnic.  Set up this moveable feast in your backyard and eat under the sun, but not far from any other item you may need.  Enjoy the relaxing time spent together with your dad, grandfather, or husband.  I’m sure he’ll relish the time away from a hot grill!
