Picture Perfect Picnic In Central Park
Is there anything more idyllic than a picnic in the park? It is a tradition so engrained in our urban and rural ethos alike, canonized by the likes of Monet, Seurat, Renoir, Poussin, Manet. The pastoral picnic evokes images synonymous with spring and leisure.
As simple as a blanket, a sandwich and a loved one, a picnic doesn't require much - unless you are, of course, a part time picnic enthusiast and full time leisure enthusiast like me - in which case a picnic means something more.
So, last weekend, I embraced spring in New York City's Central Park with the ultimate picnic - the ultimate expression of leisure. I called upon Perfect Picnic NYC, who transports you to Austen and Antoinette inspired days of yore with their customized, gourmet, champagne-filled picnics.
All you do is pick a time and voila! You arrive to blankets and pillows for lounging, chilled champagne and delicacies worthy of a painting. It is the ultimate picnic experience in NYC. Spend a few hours this Spring lounging with a view of novice boaters and when you are finished, simply pick yourself up from whichever pose you positioned yourself to bask in the city sun and meander off to your next destination. They will come back to clean everything up and you will leave full of sandwiches, arugula salad, cheese, fruit and tipsy on champagne. What a Sunday indeed!
