Why settle for a blanket and a basket when setting up a table and chairs would make your picnic guests feel super special for just a little bit more effort? Find a scenic setting in a valley, a grove of trees, a pretty field, an orchard, or even a quiet corner in your own back yard. Use a lightweight or folding table and chairs to create the wow-factor without the heavy lifting.
