Last year we have our Easter Tea Party at home with few of our friend. Although it is our virgins experience but a good one. There’s more sunlight, birds are chirping and, flowers blooming. What better way to welcome spring than with a picnic prepared from the heart? Therefore, we are going to prepare a picnic for Easter’s Day! xoxo, Le Plain Canvas
Find a Venue
The first thing when it comes to preparation of picnics is to decide a venue. The wonder of the picnic is that you can enjoy it just about anywhere. Taking the advantage of living in Singapore this beautiful city, we decided to head down to Garden by the Bay.
Set a Theme
We are drawn to warm texture and blue decorative accents. These accents remind us the sea and sky which compromise the greens well. The blankets and utensils are one of the main items we got to help achieve this theme. We also found these set of enamel dinner white plate with blue rim and cups are also one of the main items for this picnic.
Plan your Menu
We decided to use egg as our main ingredient for food. For us, we like to choose foods that served all at the same time. As the fun of a picnic is to spread all the food on the blanket and let everyone laze around, helping themselves. Here are some of the example of what we have prepared!
What's on our menu?
Main : Salmon Spinach Pie - it seems a little fancier than it really is. Appetizer : Deviled eggs - they are pure genius. As they take hard-cooked eggs and elevate them into an elegant bite that’s worthy of any appetizer plate. Sides : Kale, Grapefruit, and Honey Roasted Cashew Salad - after having all the egg-ish dishes these citrus salad are the best for this Spring season.
Plan carefully how much food you may eat. Take too much and you have to carry it all back.
Insert wooden ice cream sticks to the watermelon ensure that we have a better grip on it without getting our fingers dirty.
Finals touch up!
End off the preparation by getting some flowers for the picnics. We even hand made some of the flower wealth hair accessories to spice up the picnic. These flower wealth hair accessories are easy to made. All you need are a fresh flower, wires, and some twisting and you are good to go
• Bring Enamel plates and bowl instead of the paper one For a start, they don’t go soggy when you put dressed salad on them. • Wet wipes and bin bags. You never think you’ll need them, but you always do – picnics are messy! • The sun may shine so take sunglasses and sun block. • A good, reliable bug spray, just in case.
