June Holidays – International Picnic Day – June 18th

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

International Picnic Day celebrates the gathering together outdoors to eat and enjoy one another’s company – The Picnic. The true origin of International Picnic Day is unknown, but can be traced back to the end of the French Revolution and the Victorian Era. Picnics were ways for people to escape the restrictions of etiquette and formality. As an informal food holiday, there are few rules and lots of options. International Picnic Day is observed on June 18th each year.

Sounds like a fun day and time!!
Sunny days, good food….

Elizabeth Wellburn of ElizabethLovesGlass says:

Pink lemonade is part of all my favorite picnics. I make mine by adding a bit of cranberry juice to a blend of fresh squeezed lemons and water with honey! And it’s even more beautiful in delicate pink glass punch-style cups.

You need a beautiful tray for all your snacks!

From her other shop feltinga:

She says how can it be an outdoor party without a cup of good smelling coffee.

Carolyn T of Butterflykilns lets me know:

To me, summer picnics in the south were always about Old Bay Shrimp boils, potato salad and coleslaw! This would be perfect for these kinds of goodies.
