There’s nothing better than enjoying delicious food outdoors in the fresh air and in the good company of family and friends. You can create a unique atmosphere for your picnic by gathering everyone around the pool. Especially if your Redding pool is new or newly renovated, it’s a wonderful chance to show it off while spending time with those you love.
Here are some great ideas for a picnic potluck that will take the hassle out of preparation and clean-up, while ensuring the event is enjoyable and memorable.
- Be efficient. Don’t spend your time and energy lugging items between the kitchen and the pool. A small wagon or trolley can easily transport multiple items in one go. You can even recruit someone to take on the task – bigger children would be great at this!
- Keep clean-up to a minimum. Use paper cups and plates which can be disposed of once the picnic is over. To really personalize the picnic experience, buy the cups in a solid color and use double-sided tape to stick a design onto them that matches the theme of your picnic. If you’re playing matchmaker, then go with heart motifs. If children are among your guests, then think of butterflies, cars or balloons for your design.
- Make things interesting. Forget using just plain-old ice cubes. Instead, freeze small pieces of fruits into the water in the ice tray. They will not only keep the juice cool but add a little extra flavor, sweetness and color to the drink.
- The pool will be inviting to children and adults so you could actually set the theme of the picnic around the pool. To get the pool in tip-top shape consider having it remodeled, by taking advantage of some of the really convenient financing options that are available. Getting the perfect pool as a backdrop or as center stage to your picnic really couldn’t be easier.
