The lockdown has been hard on all of us and I've been finding ways to create experiences for us even if they are small ones. We have a lovely terrace/rooftop in our building that gives us HD sunsets! So why not have a rooftop sunset picnic?
I used everything we had at home to make it aesthetic and super comfy too. Let's start with what I packed for the picnic.
I wish we had a picnic basket but we don't, someday for sure though! We used the next best thing a storage basket to hold all our things. You could honestly just use a cloth bag to hold everything.
Definitely start with food and drink, let's be honest that's the most important part of any picnic! I had this basket tray so I just threw everything in there!
We were just feeling peckish so we here's what we had:
Crackers and cream cheese
Scones and jam
Nuts and fruit
We took our fruit and cream cheese in glass containers straight out from the refrigerator which is how I store it anyway so no pep required for that!
And for drinks we had chilled pink lemonade. We decided to take glasses and a glass bottle only because we were going one floor up to the terrace/rooftop. It made the entire experience a little fancier!
Next you need some comfy cushions, throw blankets and a sheet to lay down!
For that extra aesthetic touch I took some of my flowers that were already in vases in the house.
We did pack some cutlery, napkins and coasters too.
What a great evening this was, enjoying the sunset, reading cookbooks and chatting! I love this evening and I most definitely want to create more of these experiences for friends and family and cut off from the mundane work week.
