The weather here in Florida is so beautiful during Spring! Why not take advantage of the warm air and gorgeous sunshine by celebrating Mother’s Day at the beach? I can’t think of a better way to celebrate your mother than with a picnic lunch on the sand while listening to the waves crash into the shore.
From Lover’s Key and Sanibel’s Lighthouse beach to Cape Coral’s Yacht Club Beach there are so many great spots for enjoying a picnic with mom right on the sand here in Southwest Florida!
The beauty of planning a picnic lunch is that it’s such a simple, yet thoughtful way to celebrate. All you need is a few blankets to sit on, and some delicious food to eat.
The ideal beach picnic menu should include scrumptious sandwiches, yummy summer salads, a refreshing drink, and a couple of sweet desserts. Here are a few ideas for a great Mother’s Day beach picnic menu:
