Brighten the coldest, rainiest, or stormiest of days by having an indoor picnic. So what should you have for an on-the-floor indoor picnic? The basic staples are, of course, a nice-sized quilt (nothing to fluffy or furry) and lots of pillows. Also, don’t forget to make a fun playlist for a little background music. It’s a good idea to have some tiered serving pieces (this makes things a little easier to display and provides a sturdy platform, if you need one) as well as an ice bucket for beer, wine or champagne.
