So you got a girl to agree to your picnic date or maybe you are planning a surprise for her. Good man. Here’s how you’re going to ace it:

1. Time It Right

Schedule a mid-afternoon or early evening date. She won’t feel pretty if her dress is sticking to her back in the sweltering noonday sun. And don’t forget to pack a quilt or thick blanket; neither of you wants to sit on the damp ground.

And who knows if all things go well, things could get quite heated. In that case, you need to know everything about having sex outdoors. This is the ultimate guide to having hotter sex outdoors!

2. Explore!

Do your research to find a spot she hasn’t seen before; you’ll seem like an adventurous guy. Try a secluded beach or the roof of a friend’s house. If you go to a park, bypass the designated picnicking areas and find a more private shaded area instead.

3. Nail The Details

Bring a proper picnic basket – it’ll be a lot classier than a cooler box. Make sure it includes a corkscrew, hardwood chopping board and some cloth serviettes.

4. Eat Light

Limit your alfresco menu to finger foods. Some small sandwiches or a trio of cheeses paired with crackers and fruit are easy and simple. For dessert, go with some gourmet cookies, macaroons or a bar of dark chocolate.

5. Sip Seasonal Drinks

Bring a premixed cocktail in an insulated container. Try a Negroni or a cocktail with lemon – both are refreshing on a summer day. Or select a white or Rosé wine that’s not overly sweet. Avoid reds – they stain clothes and blankets.
