picnics from a-z

If we decorate our spaces when we're having a party at home, why can't we {A}dorn our picnic area with some cute bunting?  Picnic {B}askets, there are so many to choose from, I prefer the classic wicker ones. {C}hampagne ...enough said! 
Of course we can't forget {D}esserts especially pie. You can't have a picnic without pie right? I also love these {E}co friendly utensils. My picnic {F}ood of choice is a sandwich, they're portable and easy to eat.
Bring some {G}ames such as scrabble, chess and cards. {H}and sanitizer is a must, I love this one with a holder that can easily be clipped to the basket handle.  I know I mentioned desserts before but I consider {I}ce cream it's own category. yum! 
Mason {J}ars are my "cup" of choice for sipping your favorite drink and it has a lid that won't spill when it's tipped over. I love these coloful {K}nives with a protective sheaths...safety first friends. If your planning on sticking around to catch the sunset, don't forget some {L}anterns.
{M}usic!!!! I love these cloth {N}apkins, they have a great pattern and no one wants to chase around flying paper napkins when the wind decides to blow them every which way. Can anything be more perfect than having {O}cean views while picnicking? 
{P}illows and {Q}uilts make your picnic area nice and comfortable enough to sit back and {R}elax with a good book.  
Shelter is something that most people don't consider. It's never a bad idea to set up your picnic area under a {S}hade tree, {S}imple umbrella, make {S}hift tent or a {S}weet canopy.  
{T}hermos are great for keeping coffee and soups hot especially for autumn picnics.  I know we are getting to the end of the list and you're probably thinking you're going to need some {U}pper arm strength to carry everything. When everything is unpacked don't to forget to enjoy each others company and take in a little {V}itamin D because if the sun is shining there is no reason to stay indoors. 
Consider the {W}eather because no one likes to be caught in the rain...or do they for a little {X}oxo?  Well all this has me {Y}awning and now I think I'm going to catch some {Z}zzzzzzz.
