Remember last year’s Spring picnic? It was such a hit with my friends that I wanted to do another rendition this year, after all it is our last semester! Walking over to Forsyth Park and hanging out is one of my favorite things to do and something that recently we’ve all made sure there is time for. Savannah sure is a charming place to do so.
We kept the decor minimal this year and opted for a classic white picnic blanket. (All that was missing was the perfect picnic basket!) I honestly don’t think a picnic is a picnic without some pretty flowers and these tulips are perfect for Spring! They’ve been popping up in all of the local grocery stores and markets for such a good price lately.
Since our picnic was during Happy Hour we grabbed some Black Box wines to enjoy. They are so portable, yet higher quality than average box wines and at a lower price point (they’re 40% less than comparable bottled wines!) The brand has even won over 50 Gold Medals for its quality. Plus, this art school student approves of that sleek packaging! It’s also nice that if you maybe don’t finish all of the wine (most of us will, let’s be honest!) it’ll still last for up to six weeks.
When it came to the food we focused on the delicious main course. I made this merlot, garlic and ginger flank steak the night before, as well as a cilantro-based chimichurri sauce to compliment it. We also brought along a side salad and a whole wheat baguette. So, so good! Keep reading to find the recipe or head to Black Boxes’ Simple Entertaining Social Hub for even more ideas!
