Everyone loves a picnic! Eating outside can make even a simple meal seem like an adventure (if you're a kid), romantic (if you're a couple), or just a welcome change of pace (for the rest of us). But you don't have to trek to a park, beach, or forest preserve; it's just as fun (and much easier) to have one in your own backyard. These recipe and craft ideas will help you get organized.
Fold your tablecloth in half a few times, and it can easily be stowed for your trip to the picnic spot.
