No, planning a picnic lunch menu requires some thought, especially if your picnic is a romantic picnic for two!

Picnic food ideas for couples.

Picnic date food needs to meet the following criteria:

  • be easy to eat (think bite sized muffins, quiches, sandwiches or hand pies)
  • be travel friendly (not requiring too many steps to put together when you get there and traveling well without collapsing)
  • be able to be made ahead of time (even the day before if possible, to reduce stress on your actual picnic date)
  • be tasty!

I’m a fan of having some of those easy to eat options above, combined with something more substantial like meat, salad and of course some sweet picnic food to finish it all off!

These picnic food suggestions meet all the above criteria.
