Grab a blanket and a basket, today is International Picnic Day.
Outdoor feasting on the ground has a reputation for soggy sandwiches and ants.
But here are a few tips for making your picnic perfect.
Find a shady spot and bring a blanket that you don't mind getting dirty.
Also, pack a few damp cloths in plastic bags to clean up messy fingers and spills.
And bring some sort of utility tool that will help you slice an apple or open a bottle.
The less you bring, the less you have to take home, so pack your picnic efficiently.
