Romantic Picnic Food Ideas

July 27, 2010

Tasty Treats With a Romantic Flair

If you are planning the perfect romantic picnic for you and your mate, then its important to not overlook one of the most important aspects: the food! Fortunately we have some very romantic picnic food ideas to inspire you for packing your basket for a day of romance.

When considering what types of things to bring to eat, you’ll want to make sure that they are foods that your partner likes – if it is one of their favorites they’ll likely be much happier with that than a bunch of exotic foods they won’t eat!

Here are some of our favorite picnic foods:

Fresh Strawberries: Strawberries are naturally romantic, being the color red and full of sweetness. You’ll likely get bonus points if they are chocolate covered!

Cheese and Crackers: For something that is easy to serve and to give your time together a bit of sophistication, cheese and crackers are a great way to go.

A Bottle of Wine: Make sure that the place you are going does not have any alcohol restrictions (such as a national or state park) – but in most cases packing along your favorite drink with a few wine glasses is a great way to add a little more romance – just don’t forget the wine opener! If wine is not your thing, it’s perfectly okay to bring one of your favorite beers or even a gallon of ice cold lemonade or iced tea.

Grilled Goodies: If you’re going someplace that has grills available and you’re a master of the barbecue, consider grilling up some classics like steaks or hamburgers if you both need a full meal.

Sandwiches: Lightweight, easy to make, and easy to clean up. Whether it’s peanut butter and jelly or a turkey sandwich is up to you.

Chocolate: Chocolate has always been a romantic food that can please just about anyone. A tip if you plan on packing chocolates for a picnic on a hot summer day is to freeze them ahead of time to make sure they don’t melt before you eat them!

Fresh Veggies: Not only do these make for great portable snacks, but they are healthy for you too! Pepper slices, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, and celery are all good places to start.

Other Fresh Fruits: Beyond strawberries, you might want to include peaches, watermelon, grapes, apple slices, blueberries, or any others that are favorites.

Dessert: A good picnic always needs some dessert. Whether it’s a slice of cheesecake for you to share or a piece of pie, it’s a great way to end the meal on a sweet note.
