I myself have done before dawn picnics, as well as late night sofa picnics, as alternatives to the expected picnic fare. Yesterday, I packed up a sweet little picnic breakfast, (Mother's Day!) and headed over to the Sewing Queen's home. (My Mom!)
My favorite portable container these days for caring individual beverage servings, ad well as items I want to pull from the fridge (Like fruit salads.) would have to be mason jars. Affordable, washable, and they can be found at most any grocery or big box store.
I made my easy coffee cake I shared last week, but this time in the form of cinnamon swirl muffins. I added individual servings of orange juice, and then a bigger canning jar of freshly cut mixed fruit.
A perfect light fare. I personalized my breakfast food by loading it all in a metal pan lined with cloth napkins and a couple homemade tags tied with red checkered ribbon. One of my tags was an old baby picture of me with my Mom.
I'm starting to think food-on-the-go is becoming almost as big of a passion as tablescapes are for me.
