Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to host a picnic since the weather is warmer, the grass is greener and everyone can’t wait to get outside. However, while having a picnic is fun, sometimes the preparation can be a lot of work. Here are some planning tips to keep your Memorial Day organized and hassle-free!
A successful picnic starts with extra organization. Prepare by storing all materials and ingredients in one place a few days before your picnic destination. Nothing’s worse than arriving to realize you forgot key ingredients or even worse, silverware!
Create an easy-to-access place in the pantry, so when it’s time for your picnic, you’ll have everything you need.
Create perfectly portioned and transportable snack trays for little ones with muffin tins! Organize fruit, crackers and drinks inside the sturdy muffin pockets to keep your child’s meal spill free and organized.
