Your Weekend Picnic Essentials

It is HOT here in the south, so we thought we would help you pack for the perfect picnic.

Here in Birmingham the perfect picnic is often at one of our many parks, so do not forget a

blanket or two. Second on the list… plates, cups, and napkins you cannot do without. In our

opinion, finger foods are a must because who remembers to pack silverware? Last but not least, a

fruit infused water or a skinny cocktail never hurts, but remember the ice.
