Best Birthday Picnic Ideas You Should Know About

While birthday dinners and nighttime celebrations are always enjoyable, there is something unique and distinctive about spending your special day with a picnic in the sunlight. Begin by deciding on a place that fits the mood of your birthday picnic—it may be a neighboring park, the beach, or your garden. You may make it as informal or as formal as you choose; inform your guests in advance of what to anticipate — and what to bring. If you're seeking unique ways to commemorate a loved one's birthday, a traditional outdoor picnic is a terrific choice. You may keep it simple with a typical checkered picnic blanket and tasty food, or you can go the extra mile with picnic invites, DIY décor, and outdoor activities for kids. This round-up is jam-packed with creative ideas, food, games, decorations, and more to help you plan your next birthday picnic, no matter how big or little it is.


1) Use Fresh Flowers

Flowers are an excellent way to immerse yourself in an outdoor setting fully. Putting together a bouquet for your picnic will put a unique twist on a traditional noon picnic. You may either select flowers from your yard or go to a local flower store and have the florist create an arrangement of your choice.


In terms of where these flowers should be placed during the picnic, try utilizing a glass vase to make a lovely centerpiece for your picnic gathering. The arrangement of flowers in the middle of your picnic is a charming but straightforward approach to dress up the occasion. Whatever flower arrangement you choose, you can be sure that it will offer a wonderfully designed look to your picnic.

2) Add Some Fun Pillows

One of our favorite outdoor party ideas is to use pillows. Adding cushions to the arrangement not only adds a charming touch to your outdoor meal but also creates a comfy sitting space for you and your guests to relax and enjoy. Once you've decided on a color palette for your picnic, include some colorful and distinctive outdoor cushions that complement the overall design of your gathering.


If you want to utilize picnic blankets and floor sitting, visitors may use these cushions for extra comfort throughout the celebration. If your picnic lasts until dark, you may wish to incorporate some blankets in your arrangement. With that in mind, feel free to pile on as many pillows and blankets as you want—the cozier, the better!

3) Homemade Refreshments

Homemade refreshments are mostly an excellent way to stay cool on a hot, sunny day when it comes to beverages. Homemade lemonade is usually a good choice for a summer picnic gathering. Consider fruit-infused water for a drink that is less sweet but still pleasant. The greatest thing about fruit-infused water is that you can use almost any combination of fruits, so the possibilities are limitless.

4) Cake

Every celebration requires a birthday cake, and if you do not want to make it yourself, you should get it well in advance. Something with an outdoor birthday picnic theme would be ideal. For cake serving and other eatables, you must carry disposable items with you and necessary utensils. If you carry disposable plates, spoons, glasses, etc., you should take  the EcoGarby™ Portable Trash Bag Holder to dispose of your trash during the party. The EcoGarby is easy to carry as it's portable and you can easily take it with you to keep your trash where it belongs instead of scattering it here and there to save the natural beauty of your surroundings.


5) Activities And Games

No party is complete unless there are games and activities to have the kids interested. With a picnic party, you have a lot more outside room for children to play, so here are a few ideas for what they might do.

  • The Scavenger Hunt

Please make a list of things located in a park or picnic area and  have each kid gather them as part of a scavenger hunt. When they've completed all of the tasks, they'll get a little gift.

  • Egg And Spoon Races

Each youngster receives a spoon with a hard-boiled egg balanced on top. They must beat the other kids to the finish line without dropping their eggs, and the winner gets a reward. Tying two children's legs together and having them run as one is an additional obstacle.

  • Sack Race

Everyone recalls playing this picnic game when they were little. All you need are some bags to utilize as a means of entry. All that remains is to run and run quickly. This simple and enjoyable game should be considered while planning.

  • Cornhole

Cornhole is a more complicated picnic game that is a favorite pastime for many people. Small bags loaded with corn, as well as a wooden board with a hole to shoot at, are required for this game. If you want to keep things simple, this may not be the best option for you since the game takes some setup.



Birthdays only come around once a year, so they're an excellent opportunity to celebrate the lives of those we care about. You have the option of keeping it basic or going all out with decorations and games. A birthday party picnic must ensure that the birthday girl/boy feels appreciated and at ease.
