Everything You Need for an Indoor Picnic

As the pandemic continues and the cold weather has blown in, it’s time to come up with creative date ideas. An indoor picnic is both romantic and easy to set up, all while allowing you to physically distance from people. There are a few things you need to turn an indoor picnic from quaint to wildly romantic.

Blankets and Cushions

No picnic is complete without a nice big blanket. If you want a matching look, choose a blanket that is in a neutral shade like white or black. It will match any cutlery or plates that you use. You may even want to have extra blankets on hand if you want to snuggle up with your special someone. A couple of cushions to sit on or to simply lounge against, is a good idea. 

The Table

Since you’re inside, it’s okay to use a coffee table or another low hanging table to spread your feast out on. Just remember to decorate it nicely, with a runner, platters of delicious food, and wine glasses. No romantic picnic is complete without some nice wine or a sparkling beverage. 


Another great thing about picnicking inside and enjoying the warmth of a heater is the fact that you can have some music playing. Pull out your Bluetooth speaker and create a playlist with all of your favorite tunes. This will further add to the ambiance of your lovely evening with a significant other.
