Ready for a Beach Picnic?

beach picnic"Beach dinners must be exceedingly portable and simple. Not only do we have to get it to the beach, we also have to be able to pack up in a hurry if a thunderstorm should develop," says Chef Mom.

Does this beach "tablescape" meet the requirements? I don't think so, but it sure looks fabulous. And to my own surprise, I have actually never had a beach picnic!

  3. OH NO. I cannot believe you have never had a picnic. You need to rectify this soon. Even a backyard picnic can be fun. I think sitting on grass to eat is a preferable to sand. Sand makes for quite crunchy food! Nice picture though! Julie

  6. Don't feel too bad. I love on Maui and never have had a beach picnic! Plenty of BBQ's but not an actual picnic. I may just need to do this so I can say that I have. :)

  11. Probably the closest I've come to a beach picnic is sandwiches and chips out of a beach bag. The photo does seem a tad unrealistic but a wonderful fantasy. I'm there! :)

  14. That beach picnic looks much more inviting than my sandwiches, chips, fruit and nuts from the cooler ever did.

  15. That reminds me of picnic lunches my husband and I would have on a secluded beach in Cairns...on days like this (it's raining and grey in Michigan) I really ask myself 'and why did we move??'...love all the fruit! :o)

  17. And what a picnic that is!!! I love the thought that you have to be able to pack up in a hurry for a storm. I'll be thinking differently the next time I pack a picnic!
