This month we are celebrating both National Picnic Month and National Parks and Recreation Month with our very own bookish collection of picnic essentials.
Parks provide a space for community, where family and friends can bond over shared activities and home-cooked meals. They are central to so many memories: playdates, parties, and picnics.
Here at Mango, we boast a repertoire of picnic essentials: food, flowers, fun activities, furry friends, and everything else you need to celebrate outdoors.
Get creative for the cookout: Craft the ultimate cookout buns (Buns and Burgers) or sub your burger for a vegan patty (Making Vegan Meat). Explore America’s drive-ins, diners and dives (Eating Across America), her dishes (Food Americana), or her drinks (Beer School).
Read about greens on the green: Learn about plants (In Defense of Plants, Growing Flowers) or try to escape them (Mother Nature Is Not Trying to Kill You, Surviving the Wild). Incorporate them into your cocktails (Garnishes from the Garden) or into your self-care (Terpenes for Well-Being).
Tour the outdoors: Plan the perfect picnic date with your partner (The Art of Picnics) or your pet (Becoming a Dog Chef). Play around with people (Picturing America’s Pastime) or puppies (Chew this Journal)
July is all about enjoying good food and good company. This month, we encourage everyone to take a break from their fast-paced lifestyles, pick up a basket, and reconnect with nature with these picnic essentials.
Thank you for trusting us with your stories and thank you for making the world a better, more beautiful place.
