5 Things to Pack for Your Labor Day Picnic

If you’re lucky enough to have Monday off for Labor Day and don’t already have big party (or nap) plans, you should consider rounding up your family or friends for a simple picnic in the park! Surprisingly easy to throw together, your get-together only requires the things pictured here: a basket, blanket, food and drink and plates. (Okay, fine, plus napkins and forks and spoons if your chosen food so requires.) Keep it green and lighthearted by throwing these items together using stuff already in your house. Short on time or just hate cooking? Grab the other necessities and then hit Subway or another favorite spot for food to bring with you. Extras like card games, music, or good conversation starters are up to you. Happy Labor Day!

Thought it was going to be about picnic food but it seems to be adverts.
