There’s no better way to take advantage of warm weather than by planning a backyard picnic with your BFFs or SO. Instead of doing the bare minimum, you’ll want to take some inspiration from TikTok and put together a bougie picnic that’s so picturesque that you’ll need to post the whole spread on social media — along with some clever Instagram captions for backyard picnics, of course. A proper picnic aesthetic with a delicious spread and gorgeous decor can turn any normal day into a moment you’ll want to remember forever, and you’ll definitely want to document it for all your followers to see.

You’ve probably seen some Insta-worthy picnic setups on TikTok that have inspired you to create your own stunning setup. Of course, you need a cozy blanket and tasty charcuterie board with all your fave snacks for a picnic, but you can take it to the next level with a bouquet of fresh flowers and some candles. If you want to have a super romantic picnic date with your partner, string up some fairy lights in the trees and get a few comfy throw pillows so you can lay out and stargaze together after dinner.

If you’d rather have a nostalgic backyard hang with your besties, make sure you have some throwback snacks like ants on a log and homemade Dunkaroos. When you’re not eating, you can play some throwback games like Freeze Tag or Red Rover. Just don’t forget to take as many pictures and TikTok videos of your day to post with cute picnic puns and food quotes.

With a gorgeous setup and delicious spread, you’ll definitely have a lot to post between all the foodie pics and lounging selfies.
