5 Things You Need To Bring On A Romantic Picnic For Two
Make Time For A Romantic Picnic
It is hard to disagree with playwright W. Somerset Maugham’s view that “there are few things so pleasant as a picnic.” There’s truly something quite magical about sprawling out on a blanket with your loved one in the summertime breeze. Picture the sun flickering through the tree leaves as the sound of nature replaces the usual sounds of kids calling, “Mom!”
Don’t Overthink It!
Now, I realize that it isn’t always easy to find a peaceful place to get away from it all. But if you really think about it, you can always find some oasis nearby. No matter where you live, you can enjoy each other’s company by going to your local park, beach, or even your backyard. Don’t overthink it. Just pick a place where you can feel like you’re removed from it all. Then start planning the little touches to make your picnic a special occasion. To help, below you’ll find our picks for 5 things you need to bring on a romantic picnic for two.

Setting the scene for your picnic starts with a spacious, comfortable blanket. I chose these picnic blankets not just for their beautiful aesthetic, but for their quality and practicality. Each is cozy, but also large enough to relax on. And with a waterproof backing, you’ll never feel any moisture to (ahem) dampen the mood, no matter your picnic spot.
To make your romantic outing seamless and stress-free, each of these picnic baskets has everything you’ll need in one, organized place. Each of the sets I chose include flatware, plates, stemware, and other handy accessories like a cutting board and wine bottle opener.
Nothing sets the mood quite like a little toast to yourselves during your picnic. Make sure your wine or champagne is chilled with one of these practical and beautiful wine cooler totes. A couple of these even have a wine and cheese service set if you prefer a simpler picnic set-up.
There’s nothing more romantic than champagne and candles. Combine the two and up the ambiance of your picnic with a luxury scented candle in a safe-for-transport tin container. Don't forget the matches!
Yes, you’re already surrounded by nature, so bringing flowers is very optional, but also very romantic. These vases are made of metal or wood, so you don’t have to worry about packing your fine crystal. Plus, they’re small enough to set the mood without taking over the whole blanket.
