Up Your Picnic Game!
Picnicking is definitely one of my fav things to do on a beautiful summer day. Why drink and eat in your house when you can spend that time outside surrounded my nature? Our summer in Canada is so damn short, it’s important to soak up every literal second of outdoor time. But, duh! Any true Canadian knows this.
I live pretty close to High Park and it’s one of the best spots in Toronto for a picnic. This picnic basket below is so cute and also has a built-in cooler. It’s a great way to step up your picnic game.
Another key to my picnics this summer has been these new Jacob’s Creek Moscato cans (new to the LCBO this summer and exclusive to Canada!). Yes, you heard me right. Wine in a can is a thing now. The cans just happen to be adorable and Instagram-worthy. They seriously taste delicious, sweet, crisp and refreshing. I can also see these being a staple at my girls nights from now on. Cute for display purposes and yummy – the best of both worlds.
So, what to pack to eat? Cheese, charcuterie and grapes are my go-to. A good, old-fashioned bag of chips doesn’t hurt either.
I’ve been taking picnic food inspiration from the photos below. A perfectly styled cheese board is one of the easiest and most delicious options.
