Why Green is the Best Picnic Basket Color

Today you can have picnic baskets in just about any color you desire from bright hot pink to dull gray. Let me tell you why a green picnic basket, out of all of the colors available, is the perfect color choice for you.

One word that you want for your picnic above all is balance. Take a look at the color spectrum and you will see green is right in the middle making it the color of balance. Think about what a good balance of food and drinks will do for your picnic. The greater variety and balance you have the more people you will make happy with what you have to offer them. Think in the case of cheese and wine. When it comes to cheese you will probably go with a good balance of both hard and soft cheese. Also you may want to consider having a balance of fresh and aged cheese. Cheese that has had time to age has more taste as the moisture evaporates and leaves behind tasty fat and protein.

Like cheeses, wines come in a wide variety of flavors that become more flavorful with age. Bring a balance of different wines whether Red, White, or any others you prefer. If you have a wide variety and balance of cheese it only makes sense to do the same with the wine you will have. If you know anything about cheese and wine you know that some cheeses pair better with some wines than others. If you have balance with one you will most likely have something that works well with the other. Red wines work well with aged cheeses, sweet wines work well with salty cheeses, white wines go well with rich creamy cheeses, and so on.

Not everyone is into cheese and wine for their picnics. In this case it may be a little more difficult to achieve a good balance but not impossible. Similar fashion to the cheese and wine scenario bring a variety of different foods and drinks. Hot and spicy, sweet and salty, finger foods, and salads are a few examples to consider. Not everyone is going to want something hot or spicy when you have several people getting together you can bet. At the same time you can bet a least a couple would love this option. Sweet and salty is often a very good combination but it is not perfect due to usually being unhealthy from all the salt and sugar. Finger foods often times work great for going on a picnic. They are generally not messy and easy to eat. Not to mention there are countless recipes you can follow for something quick, easy, delicious. Sandwiches can be thrown into the finger food category and think of all the possibilities available just for them. Doesn’t matter if you are making a sub, hoagie, or sliced bread sandwich there are many lunch meats, cheeses, vegetables, and other topping available to keep everyone happy. The same can be said for having salads. You may have sour, sweet, salty, and/or greasy toppings to customize it how you like it.

So you can see a good balance is very important to having a successful picnic. Green of course is also an outdoor color. Most of the time I am sure your picnics will be held outside. Seeing all of Mother Nature’s green display gives you a feeling of peace, harmony, restoration, and of course balance. Make everyone happy at your next picnic with your environmentally balanced Green Picnic Basket.
