We've got picnic fever and what better way to prepare than with these packing tips we've gathered from around the web. Whether you are roughing it in the wilderness, taking lunch to the park, or dining al fresco; there's a tip for anyone looking to make outdoor eating more practical.
1. Martha suggests packing in jars for convenience - also make a cute presentation...
2. The Burlap Bag suggests using a carrot as a knife carrier. You could also use a block of cheese if you plan to eat it!
3. Another genius idea from Martha for DIY bee & insect food covers using fabric and embroidery hoops.
4. Similar to Japanese fabric gift wrapping, The Kitchn suggests tying up foods in a piece of cloth for ease of carrying. We image creating several of these bundles (one for sandwiches, one for fresh fruits, etc..) and stuffing them all into our picnic basket. When unwrapped, instant placemats are created!
