Paris picnic

Yesterday my friends from classes at the Sorbonne and I went and had a picnic on the Champs de Mars underneath next to the Eiffel Tower, celebrating the first real flush of spring.  I'm pretty sure I got sunburned (that never, ever happens in March!) so next time I'll have to remember sunscreen!
I felt a little like a tourist, but mostly just really cool and excited.... the best part is that we plan on picnicking more often!
Do you guys like picnics?  What would you bring to them?  Have you ever had a picnic in Paris?  These two product roundups by Design*Sponge remind me of picnics in New England with my family (when I was very small we used to go over to the Old North Bridge but quickly changed over to Great Meadows when it turned out that everyone liked it better).  For a picnic in Paris, I would recommend strawberries (we had some) and champagne (we didn't) or homemade salsa and crisps?  What do you think?


  1. AWESOME! I love picnics, and you're right, need to do more of them!
    Are you living in Paris now but grew up in New England? WOW! SO jealous! :)
    Thanks for the tip on the Rodin time I'm there! Next time I'm there I'll contact you so that we can meet, maybe have a picnic!
    I do think strawberries and champagne are a must for a picnic. And bread and grapes and wine! hahaha

  2. Yeah, I grew up in Cambridge... but for now my family is living in Paris...
    Alright, I'll see you next time you're here! That'd be lovely!
