How to setup the Perfect Picnic Lunch

A luxury picnic lunch requires careful consideration and planning to ensure that the chosen space is one that accommodates all guests involved while blending seamlessly into the surrounding environment. When choosing a spot for your private picnic lunch, consider factors such as shade and sun exposure, a convenient escape should rain or other inclement weather impose on your meal and a location that offers serenity and an aesthetically pleasing natural backdrop. As for the food itself, consider locally sourced options with a tie to the surrounding landscape and go heavy on options such as fruit and vegetables as the vibrant colors and freshness of these items will please those looking for a nutritious meal while not leaving them filling heavy or sleepy on their post-lunch hike!
