The best part about warm weather is the plethora of opportunities to get outdoors and have fun with the people you love; especially when it comes to savoring your palate. In our opinion, the best form of outside dining is the DIY-styled feast – a picnic! Good thing Annapolis Town Center has all of the shops you need to stop in to create that perfect spread.
First stop – Whole Foods. Their assortment of prepared foods, snacks, beverages, and essentials is sure to check a bunch off of your list. Visit the olive bar to pick some accompaniments for your thinly sliced prosciutto and aged sharp cheddar. Then, head to the veggies and fruit aisles for some fresh melon or strawberries and pre-cut vegetables to enjoy with a rich and creamy dip. Hot fried chicken with their famous BLT Pasta Salad or Mediterranean Crunch Salad is sure to be the perfect main course. Then finish with a delicious pie or fresh cookies. To eat, you must have the necessary flatware. Grab their compostable plates and cups.
Next up – beverages from BIN201. Their associates put a great deal of care into finding well-balanced, great-tasting wines. Grab a few of their new arrivals like the Santa Barbara Winery Pinot Noir or the Prisma Sauvignon Blanc. Or, craft some cocktails with their beer, liquor, and mix assortment. It is the perfect catch-all location to suffice all of your thirsty needs!
Picnic basics are an absolute must. Head on over to Bed Bath & Beyond for the cliche basket, blanket, and don’t forget the tunes! They have all of the essentials and then some. From totes to cooler bags and bug sprays to decorative trays. You can even grab some cute napkins and place settings that can easily coordinate with your go-to outfit. Speaking of wardrobe. Shop stylish shirt dresses, crop tops, midi skirts, skinny jeans, maxi dresses, and picnic-inspired accessories from a number of our boutique row retailers like Anthropologie, J.Jill, Scout & Molly’s, and South Moon Under. You will be hitting the park in no time with some stylish looks!
