Summer Picnic Season is Here!

Summer is in full swing! Memorial Day is behind us and vacations and staycation plans are being made! Father's Day is fast approaching and the 4th of July will be here before you know it!

Father's Day Ideas

Father's Day is always a special "family time" celebration. A day to show Dads & Granddads just how special they are to their families. Why not celebrate Father's Day this year with a BBQ? Whether its at home or at your favorite picnic location there will be plenty of family time and good food. Need some help putting a BBQ together? Check out this out - Father's Day BBQ Ideas.

4th of July Picnic

What could be more American than celebrating the 4th with a picnic & fireworks? It provides the perfect opportunity to share the day with family & friends. Food, games & fireworks make for a fun day but for the day to go smoothly "someone" needs to do a bit of preparation! Planning a 4th of July picnic can be as simple as hotdogs & hamburgers and potlucks work well with larger groups. Check out this article if you need some help planning a 4th of July picnic.

A Day At The Beach

We love the beach and living just minutes from the "Worlds Most Famous Beach" that's where we tend to spend the 4th. Surf, sand and fireworks! We generally take "finger food" with us and enjoy a picnic with desserts coming from the passing ice cream trucks! Rushing to finish before it melts in the hot sun with a cool dip in the ocean to rinse clean the inevitable ice cream drips from your body! Fireworks end the day at 11, shot from the end of the pier they burst beautifully over the water. Check out this article for more beach inspiration: A day At The Beach. We have also compiled some safety tips and a list of items we consider essential for the beach. Beach Gear Checklist & Safety Tips

Canadian Independence Day

On July 1st our Canadian friends get to celebrate Canada Day, their independence day. The warm days and mild nights just beckon for a picnic to celebrate the day!

Corporate/Company Picnics

Many large & small companies hold their annual company picnics during the warm summer months. If you get to help in the event planning we have several articles that can help make the task easier; Company Picnicking 101, Organizing Your Company Picnic Games & Activities, Company Picnic Planning Ideas and Checklist for Organizing Your Company Picnic.

Get Out & Enjoy

Take every opportunity you are given this summer to enjoy some family picnic time. That's how memories are made!
