The word "picnic" is interpreted differently by different cultures: what the Frenchman understands as a romantic or family event in the open air with lying on the lawn and consuming the broughtwithready-made supplies, the Russian man often sees as a holiday by a large company with a breakdown of the temporary camp and cooking at the stake. Birthday - picnic in Russian - it's a hike, barbecue and, in fact, a picnic in one bottle. However, there are exceptions to this rule.
Place of action
The recreation areas and forest park areas within large Russian cities are increasingly ready to meet the citizens, giving them opportunities for civilized outdoor activities, does not require serious preliminary preparations.
In these cases, the organizer needs to take care only about the financial side of the issue, the invitation of the guests and their own good mood - everything else will be prepared by representatives of the recreation area and catering company. Specialists will give the customer options menu, have space for the stated number of guests, decorate the territory and may even provide an entertainment program.
Celebrate Your Own Handbook
How to hold a picnic day and how to prepare for this event, if the venue does not have all the necessary elements for rest and is a wildlife site? In this situation, all the benefits of civilization will need to take care of themselves.
Firefighting and cooking on open fire is prohibited throughout the territory of the Russian Federation( both in park areas and in forests) and is punishable by a fine. Indoor barbecue grill, grill grill and fire safety precautions will help comply with the law.
On consumables you should take care in advance - to purchase charcoal or briquettes for fire, so as not to harm the nature( especially as even in the woods it is not always possible to find dry branches for a fire).
It is advisable to take with you a means of insects, a set of waterproof and unopened clothes and a first aid kit.
Preliminary calculation of
One of the most difficult tasks facing an organizer of a collective outing on nature is to calculate how much to buy meat on a barbecue, so that everyone is enough, nothing was missing, and the budget did not burst?
The average estimated amount when buying raw meat for a picnic in the wild on a birthday is 500 m per person( the rest - on the ability and appetite).It is better to be guided by the principle: the total amount of meat for all guests( including children and the elderly), divided into two, is equal to 50% of pork meat and 50% of sausages or chicken. The amount of food per person in the framework of a holiday of three to six hours should be about a half kilogram( meat, vegetables, snacks, etc.).
Organizing an adult holiday, alcohol is often one of the topical issues. How much to buy and what?
Restaurators recommend leaving the rule:
- if the company consists predominantly of men, then one representative of a strong sex should put in an alcoholic card 750 ml of wine, 700 ml of vodka and 300 ml of champagne;
- if women prevail among those present, the amount of wine should be calculated 1.2 liters per person, and champagne and vodka - 500 ml
As with the purchase of food and the purchase of alcohol, you can not try to save from the non-drinkers - their number alwayscompensated want to rest on a full reel for themselves and "for that guy".
A picnic on the birthday of a baby is formed in about the same way as an outdoor adult banquet, with the only difference being that there is no alcohol in it, but there must be fruits and sweets, and the amount of meat is calculated from the offspring's age norm.
If the infrastructure at the venue is not sufficiently developed, then the supply of potable water and water for washing hands and vegetables( vegetables) should be taken in advance and put in a reserve for an unforeseen situation.
At the leisure of
Decoration of the territory - it's an individual thing, because for many citizens, nature in itself is the best decoration.
You can add a natural "interior":
- paper balls and flashlights;
- fabric and flange ribbons.
In very warm weather it is desirable to avoid the use of balloons that are sensitive to high temperatures.
The next thing you need to think about when preparing a birthday party is a picnic, a holiday scenario.
The last rule of a good rest in nature, if one day's holiday, says: rest should be so much that it does not get tired of it. Returning from the event is more envious, having previously removed the place of the holiday.
