When the weather's nice, that's all the motivation you need to spend quality time in your backyard. A picnic is the perfect way to seize the sunny day with great food and even better company. All you need to do is grab a cozy blanket, your fave snacks, and your phone to snap cute pics to post with Instagram captions for backyard picnics.

When you have such a great outdoor space, there's no better way to enjoy it than by setting up a picnic. Tap into your nostalgia and make a bunch of your favorite snacks from when you were a kid, like ants on a log and homemade Dunkaroos. You might also want to get some throwback games like Freeze Tag or Red Rover going when you're not snacking.

If you'd rather have a wine and cheese tasting picnic, open up a couple bottles of wine (if you're 21 or up), and serve a tasty selection of meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, and honey on a charcuterie board. Set it all up on a picnic blanket that's vibrant and totally Instagram-worthy.

When the time comes to post your foodie pics and lounging selfies, use any of these 40 backyard picnic Instagram captions. Think of them like the perfect picnic basket. Just the right caption will carry all your picnic pics to Insta greatness.
