Mother’s Day Picnic Inspiration
This next weekend is Mother’s Day. A day we recognize important women in our life or recognize one of the most important roles we play as a woman. Mother’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year because my kids make breakfast in bed for me, and I don’t have to do the dishes. Simple things I do every day for them, and it’s just so nice to take a break from it all. Usually on Mother’s Day, I request to have a picnic in a picturesque location (remember last year’s Mother’s Day picnic inspiration? We might be heading there again this weekend just to see all the beautiful wildflowers.) Well, this past Sunday we had a late church and the weather was perfect. A little cloudy, but warm enough for a light lunch outside. We have this beautiful open field, practically in our backyard. So we headed there to have lunch. I brought my cruiser, packed up the picnic basket and blanket and off we went for a pre- mother’s day picnic inspiration luncheon.
The best quick picnic lunch is assorted meats, cheeses and crackers. I also like to bring cracker spreads like fig and cream cheese and herbal. Fresh berries and grapes are a favorite. And I always like throw in the picnic basket sparkling juices. My kids love them. I also brought lemon curd cheesecake in a jar and those were heavenly and the perfect treat!
If you a planning to head out for a mother’s day picnic, don’t forget outside play toys!
