Planning a romantic picnic on your first date can be enjoyable and unforgettable if you had taken the time to find out what your partner loves to do outdoors. Ask your date about the places they love visiting and activities they enjoy. Armed with that vital information, picking the right place for the picnic, gear, food, and conversation becomes easier.
Here are food ideas for a romantic picnic, how to plan a romantic atmosphere, and some tips for a perfect and romantic moment.
Food ideas for a romantic picnic
Selecting the type of food for you and your date is vital to having a successful and memorable outing. On a first date, you should carry food in your picnic hamper that most people like, and that does not quickly spoil such as fresh fruits, cold chicken, and sandwiches. To make the foods special, personally make them.
Pack oranges, pears, grapes, and apples. Carry snacks—chips, homemade cookies, crackers, and canned fruit juice or soda drinks for consuming during a conversation. Create a more romantic atmosphere by taking along a bottle of wine, and top off the food with the wine.
Plan a romantic atmosphere
Selecting the best place to go to for your picnic can be challenging since you must pick from many excellent places. It is best to choose places you know based on your date’s preferences.
To avoid unwanted negative occurrences, visit the place or places you want to take your date to in advance. Park the cars near you in case you must leave in a hurry.
You may choose a park. To enjoy each other’s undivided attention, go to a secluded corner of the park or go there when the park is quiet. Do not just sit down in a place, stroll around while you chat with your date.
Take your date to see a romantic movie, and if they prefer an outdoor excursion in or out of town in the woods, to avoid being lost go to where you know.
Some tips for a perfect and romantic moment
Hold your partner’s hands while taking a walk and compliment your partner. During the picnic, prepare in advance, so you won’t be caught unawares by any situation.
Even during summer, be ready for unexpected rainfall. Carry along windbreakers to keep you warm and picnic blankets to sit on, towels for cleaning sweat and rain, and if you go for a swim.
Pack backpacks, sunblock, sunhats, sunglasses, selfie sticks, hampers, silverware, cups, glasses, bottles of water, napkins, and mosquito repellant to ward off bugs. A rope, USB, power bank, map, camera, flashlight, and a first aid box might also prove useful.
