5 ways to pack a summer picnic

It’s picnic season!

Picnics are a wonderful way to celebrate warm weather and summer sunshine. Luckily, packing the perfect picnic is a cinch when you have the right tote or cooler, whether you’re dining solo or with a group of family or friends.

A picnic for the whole gang

When you've invited your daughter's soccer pals or your son's camp buddies over for a picnic, only Thirty-One's Large Utility Tote will do! A bestseller year after year, the LUT (as we like to call it) is a reusable tote that’s big enough to pack everyone's favourite foods. The wire support around the opening means it holds its shape, and you can see all of the goodies you’ve packed so you don't forget a thing. Add a Top-A-Tote™ lid to keep the contents covered and secure.

For keeping drinks cold when the weather’s hot, nothing beats the roomy Away We Go Roller Thermal. Wheels and an extendable handle make it ideal for toting heavy loads like cans of soda, water bottles or juice boxes. This exclusive picnic cooler is only available when you host a Thirty-One party, so talk to your Consultant about booking one today!

A picnic for the family

Create some memories by taking family dinner outside. Bring the Round About Cooler Tote to the grocery store or farmers market to stock up on ingredients. Once the food is prepped, pack it up in this versatile insulated tote bag and carry it to your picnic destination, whether that’s the park, your back patio or poolside. The Round About Cooler Tote even has Leak Lock® thermal lining so you can place ice directly inside and a large flat pocket to store silverware.

Want to make eating al fresco extra special for the kids? Pack up their favourite treats in their very own Cool Zip Snacker for dessert. These reusable snack pouches are food safe, super cute and perfect for storing candies or small cookies – just make sure they finish their veggies first!

A picnic built for two

Whether you're picnicking with your bestie or your special someone, the Picnic Thermal Tote can’t be beat. It’s tall enough to fit your favourite bottled beverage and sports a zip-around closure that makes it easy to load and unload. Plus, the adjustable, detachable strap means you can keep your hands free while walking to the park or backyard. Remember to stick a few extra napkins in the handy front pocket!

Our go-to picnic packables are sandwiches since they can be customized exactly how each person likes them. Luckily, the reusable, food-safe Snack & Go Pouch is perfectly sandwich-sized. It comes in lots of fun prints, so you’ll know exactly whose sammie is whose, and it’s a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic baggies – win-win!

A picnic all for you

At work or at home, the Thermal Tote is the convenient choice when you need a picnic all to yourself. Throw it in your car, tuck it in your office refrigerator or take it to the beach – where you dine is up to you. The durable fabric will make it your picnic cooler of choice when you want some time alone, and the exterior pocket is roomy enough for your keys, phone or wallet. So go ahead: Make your escape!

A picnic on the go

Life may be busy, but the Around the Clock™ Thermal has you covered at lunchtime, snack time or anytime! If you're not quite sure where you'll be throughout the day, this small cooler bag is one of your most versatile options. The thermal lining means you can be confident that your food will stay cool, and (bonus!) it's water-resistant to make clean-up a breeze. Large enough for lunches or a variety of snacks, it even has two pockets that are handy for storing small items. If you're on the go from dawn to dusk, this cooler is the one for you!

Picnic table for two, please! 

Picnics are a blast, so make sure you have some fun with whichever picnic cooler or tote you choose. Don’t forget: A monogram or other personalization adds a special touch to a special meal, all season long. Click on any thermal to play around with hundreds of design options in our personalization studio!
