Beach Picnic Soiree

Beach weekends are the best weekends! Make them even more entertaining by packing a picnic to sip and snack in front of the ocean while enjoying the sea breeze. Once you’ve made your menu of food, and we have some ideas for you from our Backyard Picnic Soiree, you’ll need these four essentials to make your beach spot better than the rest.

GET COZY WITH THE BEACH BLANKET

We are loving the beach blankets from the Martha Stewart Collection for a comfy and bright picnic! Each blanket folds neatly into a square with straps for easy carrying and has convenient side pockets for storage. ($24.99, macys.com)

LIGHT AND STYLISH COOLER BAGS

The bulky and hard to carry traditional coolers are no way to have a beach picnic in style. Lucky, the  are sleek and the insulated, heat-sealed liner keeps snacks and drinks chilled, and doubles as a great damp towel/swimsuit carrier. Win, Win. ($25.99, Igloo-store.com)
