Picnics are a staple of spring and summer time activities. Few things are as fun as having a pleasant picnic in the park with your family or friends. When planning your picnic, do not forget to pick up a picnic rug. Lay it out on the grass to prevent grass stains or to keep from getting wet or dirty. Picnic rugs also prevent bugs and other critters from getting to your specially prepared meal. Even if you are eating outside, that doesn’t mean you want the outdoors on your food. Pick something classic like a gingham-checked rug, or something more modern, to add luxury and style to your outdoor meal.
