The Perfect Picnic

Outdoor Entertaining With Style

By Anita Louise Crane

It's not just sandwiches and paper plates anymore! Sometimes it's not even outdoors. There's no excuse for a humdrum picnic when ideas abound for everything from the types of hampers to use, to the accessories and recipes for the menu (try Lasagna and Citrus-Almond Scones). Why not pitch a tent inside your house, then light a fire in the fireplace and roast hot dogs and marshmallows? Or, if you're in the mood for something more retro, set up a table and chairs on the lawn. Use real china, linen napkins, and silver candlesticks. Bring a teapot and a vase for the flowers. And, be sure to invite children to the playhouse for their own special meal. Whether you're dining al fresco in the woods, on the porch, in the snow, on the range, in a tree house, or on the roof, you'll find out what you need to make your outing truly special.
