Sponsored post: Picnic Essentials

The weather is finally starting to warm up, at least for most of the country. It’s funny because, here in LA, the weather is honestly heaven for most of the year, yet I hardly ever picnic.  This summer, I’m 100% dedicated to at least a few picnics, and I’ve found a few “essentials,” at least according to me.  No one wants to carry a ton, so I tried to keep this list to the bare minimum.

A picnic basket: For obvious reasons…you need something cute (and functional) to hold snacks, blankets, wine, etc.

Wine glass holders: I discovered these a few years back and guys, they are brilliant.  They work in grass and sand, so all your options are covered.

A picnic blanket: No one wants to sit in the grass so make sure to always have a lightweight blanket, which will also prevent grass stains.

Blackbox wine: Ok, so you may have seen my video a few weeks back where I RAVED about boxed wine or, more specifically, Blackbox wine.  Up until that point, I had actually never even had boxed wine before and I was shocked to find out how delicious (and convenient!) it is to drink wine from a box.  I put the box of white immediately in my fridge so it would stay chilled and just refilled as necessary.  What’s great is that they also have smaller versions, so you don’t have to carry a big box around for picnics.  I found a new summer obsession…

Available in ten delicious varietals and two sizes (3L and Tetra), Black Box Wine is pretty amazing; Black Box Wines is perfect for all your summer gatherings.
