Sweet Picnic Essentials

With my husband being on location for the last month I’ve found myself more outdoors than ever with the boys. We’re all about the zoo, park hopping, and roaming around the city. I mean the weather has been unbeatable so obviously we have to take advantage, right? One of our absolute favorites in the summer fun department, is picnicking. Somehow eating outdoors on a blanket trumps the dining room (unless you’re eating lo mein on the beach, lesson learned), especially in the Summertime. 

While in most cases I plan and pack our basket up for our outing, lately I’ve found myself becoming more impromptu and ordering (picnic appropriate) take out and stopping by Starbucks for a Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea. Real talk, they’re kind of amazing and I’m all for switching up my coffee routine and replacing it with these perfectly crafted, shaken tea + lemonade combinations. They’re like the perfect Summer on the go essential, with just enough caffeine to keep you moving. My favorite so far is the Teavana® Shaken Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade™, but I’m sure I’ll be easily swayed by the others, Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade™ & Teavana® Shaken Iced Black Tea Lemonade™.

What’s not to love about the idea of being able to grab, go, throw down a blanket and enjoy next that cheeseburger you just splurged on. Probably the best way to shake up any Summer, am I right?

Throw yourself your own picnic party...
