Guys--Summer is literally RIGHT around the corner and we are dying to start hitting the beach again! So we put together a little styled beach picnic shoot full of practical tips and tricks that you can use to create your best insta-worthy beach picnic with your bestie or your boo!
Here's what you'll need:
- a woven basket
- wood appetizer / cutting board
- disposable plates + bowls + cutlery + cups
- snacks (like cheese, salami, baguettes, fresh fruit, nuts)
- a bottle of rosé (with a twist top!)
- a bouquet of fresh flowers
- a big beach blanket
And you can't forget about that cute new suit + cover up you just bought for all your beach pics! Top it off with some dope shades or a killer hat. And as always, don't forget the suncreen and some water!
You can find a similar woven basket here.
Tip: either buy most of your snacks pre-cut, or cut them up at home before you leave for the beach to make it easier once you get there!
Tip: bring disposable everything. Don't bother with bringing extra items that you'll have to wash when you get home. Keep those items limited (like your cheese board). And don't forget to think about eco-friendly options like bamboo, which we used, for our bowls and plates! You can buy some here.
Tip: buy a bottle of wine that has a twist top so don't have to worry about bringing a wine opener! (Or don't have to worry about accidentally forgetting it...)
Tip: pack everything in ziploc bags so that any leftovers can easily be put back in the ziploc bags and eaten later at home. And don't forget to bring a bag desginated specifically for trash! That'll make your clean up way easier.
We are so excited for all the beach picnics to come! And we can't wait to see all the beach picnics you guys have. Tag us in your photos so we can see!
