After being in lockdown for way too long, you must surely miss attending parties or throwing one. With summer on its way, it’ll be a great time to get out of the house and enjoy a nice popup picnic with friends and family.
Here are some awesome tips on how you can throw the best popup picnic for your next party (or possibly your first party since lockdown).
Decorate your picnic spot
With summer just around the corner, a boho picnic would be an ideal choice for any occasion especially for all you Coachella-lovers out there. If you have budget for your picnic party, go crazy with furniture by hiring low tables, rugs, cushions and other pretty decor pieces to suit your theme.
What to serve at your popup picnic
Antipasto or grazing platters make excellent choices for picnics in the summer! Let your creativity run wild by putting together your own grazing platter. Think of the ingredients that you would want to have on your platter; from cheeses to fresh fruits and breadsticks, it all really depends on what you can afford and what you feel like serving at your picnic. Just be sure to not leave out the dips!
Picnic food alternatives
If grazing platters are off the list, work on a few special gourmet dishes to be served at your popup picnic instead. Here are a few recipes we think you’ll love:
- Broccoli, Goat’s Cheese and Tarragon Frittata
- Chargrilled Lime and Coriander Fish Tacos
- Savoury Eggplant and Haloumi Quiche
- Chicken and Chorizo Empanadas
Want to make your popup picnic extra fancy?
Take your popup picnic to the next level by adding a few attractive elements. Place a backdrop wall or a fancy champagne wall for guests to enjoy & use to take photos at your party. You can also add some beautiful fresh flowers to your backdrop wall if you’re going for a pretty floral theme.
Balloons are definitely a go-to party decor item too. From beautiful balloon orbs to balloon garlands, they will surely make your party look aesthetically-pleasing to your guests! Check out our article here on the types of balloon designs that are trending.
Want to go extra fancy? Try hiring a mobile bar! A vintage mobile caravan bar might just be perfect for your popup picnic especially if you are not one to leave out booze from the menu.
Planning a popup picnic might seem tough, but with some inspiration and proper planning and research, you’d be able to plan one successfully. Just remember to stay safe and practice social distancing at all times with your guests this summer!
