Mason Jar Picnic Ideas
Picnic season is here. One of our favorite summer activities is to pack up a picnic dinner and head to a local park for a concert or play. Portland has a wonderful program of concerts and plays in their parks each summer. There is usually something going on somewhere almost every night of the week!
To go along with our Mason Jar theme this month I have put together a mason jar picnic.
Packing your picnic is not only easy but it looks dang cute too. Clean up is a breeze also.
You can basically take any of your favorite picnic foods and just pack it up in a mason jar. You can use the mason jar as a serving piece or give everyone their own jar and eat right out of the jar. No need for plates. If you are going to eat out of the jar a wide mouth jar is a bit easier but the narrow one will work too.
Of course a cute picnic basket and blanket is always nice too. For our picnic I grabbed a few things from our local deli because I am usually planning last minute!
I love the little half pint size jars – perfect for lots of things including dip for veggies.
Of course what would a picnic be without lemonade!.
We also had to add a little pretty. I picked a rose out of our garden and just floated it in some water in a jar – instant centerpiece!
And a few tea lights in a jar complete the scene.
For dessert I did homemade and I made a fresh blueberry and raspberry crisp. I baked them right in the little mason jars. Come back tomorrow for more details and the recipe.
A Mason Jar Picnic is a fun and easy way to put a picnic together.
Transportation is easy too – just put the lids on the jars and pack everything up in your cute picnic basket!
