4 ESSENTIALS FOR THE PERFECT BEACH PICNIC
Beach weekends are the best weekends! Make them even more entertaining by packing a picnic to sip and snack in front of the ocean while enjoying the sea breeze. Once you’ve made your menu of food, and we have some ideas for you from our Backyard Picnic Soiree, you’ll need these four essentials to make your beach spot better than the rest.
GET COZY WITH THE BEACH BLANKET
We are loving the beach blankets from the Martha Stewart Collection for a comfy and bright picnic! Each blanket folds neatly into a square with straps for easy carrying and has convenient side pockets for storage. ($24.99, macys.com)
WINE-TO-GO, DITCH THE GLASS
Zipz Wines are pre-filled plastic wine glasses that are perfect to bring to the beach, or really any location that isn’t your home! Available in Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon ($2.99 per glass, $39.99 for a case of 12 – find location or buy from the Zipz atzipzwine.com)
REUSABLE UTENSILS FOR EVERY OUTING
The REPEAT Utensils kits from To-Go Ware are unbelievably perfect for any picnic outing or for packing an office lunch. The slim case holds a fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks ($12.95,mightynest.com)
LIGHT AND STYLISH COOLER BAGS
The bulky and hard to carry traditional coolers are no way to have a beach picnic in style. Lucky, the are sleek and the insulated, heat-sealed liner keeps snacks and drinks chilled, and doubles as a great damp towel/swimsuit carrier. Win, Win. ($25.99, Igloo-store.com)
