Picnic Essentials 101

Published on: June 18, 2016

Snacks: Your quintessential picnic spread – pick up a selection of cheeses and pair with something salty (olives), and something sweet (fruit). #yum

Entertainment: There’s nothing better than reading under the sun, or taking a nap with your favorite tunes. For added fun, bring along a frisbee or if the breeze is on your side, try flying a kite.

Summer water: Summer is hailed as the start of rosé season, so grab your favorite pink bottle to enjoy under the sun. 

Accessories: No shade where you’re picnicking? Don’t forget your sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen! Protect yourself from UV rays all summer year round.

Camera: Capture those summertime memories whether it’s on your polaroid camera, or via your iPhone.

*Take advantage of the Summer Solstice package at 1 Hotel Central Park this summer to save up to 35% on your reservation, and enjoy picnic preparations for two by Jams – including a fresh baguette, local cheeses & a bottle of Rosé.
