Coke in glass bottles. Casseroles. Hula hoops. Checkered blankets.  Letter sweaters. There is something  glamorous about vintage picnics. Maybe it’s the way the food was  stored in canisters and silver boxes or the blankets and beautiful tablecloths spread over the grass while lounging next to a really cool car. Picnics are a perfect for some family fun on the beach – there is always a reason and time for a picnic during the warmer months. Delectable food and refreshing libations abound.
