Once you have got everyone in your family, including your sick pup, back up to 100% and ready for summer, then you might want to all go out on an outdoor outing! If you don’t know the first thing about hosting a picnic, there are tons of tips on throwing a meal outdoors, so that you can have the perfect summertime gathering.
You don’t want to exclude anyone and when you are planning your picnic, because you never know who won’t be able to make it. Firm up commitment from some close friends first, before throwing the picnic, and then open it up to lots of people. You could get to know some new friends outside of Facebook.
Make sure that everyone brings something and get a running tally of what folks have said they will bring. This will help to take some of the burdens of hosting off of your shoulders.
It’s also responsible, as well as respectful, to clean up after your picnic. You don’t want to be known as someone who comes in, sets up, makes a mess and just leaves. Form a cleaning crew and encourage guest to help out!
