This easy summer picnic menu features everything you need to treat yourself and your guests to a great meal whether you’re home or away!
Is there anything more summery than a picnic?
Even though the temperatures are blazing here in North Carolina during the day, it’s usually perfect in the evening.
This month we’re co-hosting a virtual progressive picnic with our friends and have a delicious, summery menu.
You don’t wanna miss any of these delicious recipes!
This month we’re bringing the dessert: No Bake Lemon Bars in a Jar.
What better place to enjoy a picnic than AnnMarie’s beautiful outdoor pergola?!
She shared all her secrets for creating a perfect spot for a picnic.
And you can our friend’s creative picnic ideas too!
Doesn’t AnnMarie’s pergola look pretty with those different sized string lights from A.Q. Lighting?
If you’re visiting from our friend Jen’s home in Nebraska, or you’re new to our blog, welcome!
We’re so glad you’re here.
Have a seat and we’ll pour you a glass of our summer favorite, Sauvignon Blanc.
AnnMarie and I live across the street from each other and love sharing simple ideas for home decorating, easy DIY projects, entertaining, healthy eating, and some tips for raising teens and beyond.
In case you’re wondering, I’m wearing the polka dots, and AnnMarie’s wearing white.
Summer Picnic Menu
I love picnic food, and our friends did not disappoint with these delicious recipes!
We’ve got a five course meal to share (because a cocktail like this definitely counts as a course!)
Cocktail: Citrus Rosemary Cocktail
Lemon is so refreshing during the summer.
I can’t wait to see how it pairs with fresh rosemary in Michele’s delicious recipe!
Appetizer: Cucumber Sandwiches with Cream Cheese
I have so many memories of going to tea with my mom and my daughters!
One of our favorites was always the light cucumber sandwiches.
Aren’t these perfect for a summer picnic?
Main Course: Easy Rotisserie Chicken Salad
I absolutely love a good chicken salad.
Our friend Rachel is making hers so easy and flavorful by using rotisserie chicken!
Fresh fruit always pair so nicely with a sandwich during the summer don’t you think?
Side Dish: The Best Creamy Broccoli Salad
Jen is serving up a delicious side dish for our picnic: a creamy broccoli salad.
She had me at bacon…

I upcycled jars from my daughters’ Oui yogurts for a picnic-ready container.
If you want to use something more disposable, go ahead and use small clear plastic cups!
