Beach season is here and I’m so ready to spend the long days in the sand and swimming in the sea. Why not elevate your beach experience with a picnic? Folly is my go to beach but when I want to switch it up I trek to Kiawah. The perfect day would be visiting Freshfields Village for some shopping and then head out to the beach in the late afternoon when it’s not as crowded.
For quick and easy bites on the go I hit up Jersey Mike’s Subs and The VIllage Market by Harris Teeter. My kids can eat Jersey Mike’s everyday and never get sick of it. Whatever you order, you have to get it Mike’s Way which includes Onions, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Vinegar, Oil and Spices. I love a good charcuterie board and The VIllage Market by Harris Teeter has plenty of to go platters in every size.
GDC Home has the perfect accoutrements for a swanky spread. Whether you’re entertaining at home or taking your party to go, be prepared for major compliments. Everyone that passed by my pop-up picnic were so curious about the set up that they had to strike up a conversation. Glad we could entertain the beach goers that day.
