Summertime Essential: Picnics Made Easy

Here in Seattle, it’s common knowledge that real summer weather doesn’t start until July 5. True to form, after an overcast and drizzly weekend, today has been beautiful and in the 80s in the Emerald City. Once the season has arrived, we take every advantage of our brief but beautiful summer weather, and one of our favorite things to do (even after a long day at the office) is pack up a picnic basket and head outdoors to soak up as much vitamin D as possible.

Planned or spontaneous, in the park or in the backyard, dining alfresco and lazing on a blanket couldn’t be a more perfect way to enjoy a brunch, lunch or dinner. Once you have your essential gear at the ready, all you need is to pack up and head outside. Make picnics an easy (and regular!) summertime activity, and find all you’ll need in our Outdoor Entertaining and Picnic Shop.
