The beautiful mountain scenery acts as a wonderful backdrop to my snow picnic. Tie balloons to the back of your car, the tables, or tree branches to create a festive mood. Cover the table with a printed snowflake tablecloth. A fresh winter-white flower bouquet adds a touch of sophistication. Use paper plates and plastic silverware, but bring linen napkins. They're environmentally friendly and make the picnic more elegant. Pour the wine in plastic wine glasses. Serve the soup in light blue cups and the the salad in frosted takeout containers. Don't forget lawn chairs for people to sit in.
