Ideas for a Romantic Picnic
Who said that a picnic had to occur outdoors? How about a picnic in your bedroom? Set the scene. Cover the bed with a red and white gingham cloth tablecloth. Setting out scented candles on the dressers and around the bed smells romantic.
Have a sunroom in your house? Move the furniture to the corners and put comfy cushions on the floor. On a clear night, watch the moon and stars from the comfort of your home with the person you love. Toast the night sky with champagne and strawberries or cheese, bread, and wine. Include a blanket so that you can cuddle up together. If you fall asleep, thatís okay too.
If your romantic bedroom picnic is a breakfast affair, prepare the night before. Arranging everything needed for the meal leaves more time for special extras like arranging fresh flowers around the bedroom and preparing the picnic basket. You may have to wake a bit early to have time to yourselves, but it will be worth it.
For married couples with children, a romantic picnic may have to take place after the kids have gone to bed. But, while they are still awake, go ahead and get everything ready so that the relaxation can begin as soon as their heads hit the pillow. Both of you can snuggle up to your favorite romantic movie while you nibble.
If you both enjoy the great outdoors, pack a hearty picnic lunch and head off to the lake or the nearest hiking trail. A hike in the mountains can leave you standing at the top when the sun sets. Spread out your blanket and share a special meal while the sun goes down.
At the lake, take a leisurely boat ride or a romantic swim together to work up an appetite. You can enjoy the meal in the boat or on the shore while you dry off in the sun. Since alcohol, water, and sun donít mix, enjoy a large refreshing glass of homemade iced tea. Just make sure you can find your way back to your car or campsite before dark.
Enjoy your romantic picnic!
