With a touch of nostalgia and a sprinkle of joy, this event calls for a gathering that will create lasting memories. In this blog post, we will explore five key points to help you host a fantastic MyGoodbyes Party picnic in the park (or any location you have available to you), from recipes and environment to drinks, dress code options, and decorations. So, grab your picnic blanket and let’s dive in!
1) Scrumptious Recipes:
A MyGoodbyes Party picnic calls for delicious dishes that evoke feelings of warmth and nostalgia. Prepare classic picnic favourites like finger sandwiches, fresh salads, and savoury pastries. Create a special dessert such as a layered trifle with colourful fruits and a refreshing twist. To infuse a touch of creativity and embody the spirit of the MyGoodbyes Party, be sure to include a special recipe that symbolises the fun and love you have to share. .
For a mouthwatering main course, try these Sticky Chicken and Pineapple Skewers. They are a perfect blend of savoury and sweet flavours that will delight your guests.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, add the ketchup, soy sauce, honey, mustard, sugar, garlic, and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook gently until thickened, about 10 minutes. Set aside and cool.
- Heat an outdoor grill or a grill pan. Cut each chicken thigh into 2 pieces. Peel the pineapple and cut it into 1 1/2-inch chunks. Alternating between the chicken and pineapple, thread the pieces onto the skewers. Brush them with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper.
- Remove the garlic cloves from the barbecue sauce and discard; put about half the sauce into a small bowl for later. Brush skewers with some of the sauce.
- Cook them on the grill, basting regularly with the barbecue sauce, until cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Serve with reserved barbecue sauce on the side for dipping.

2) Enchanting Environment:
Choosing the right park location for your MyGoodbyes Party picnic is crucial. Look for a picturesque spot with ample greenery, shaded areas, and perhaps even a tranquil lake or fountain. Consider the park’s overall ambiance and select a location that aligns with the sentiment of the MyGoodbyes Party. Why not have a little bit of music ready to play in the background?
3) Delectable Drinks:
No picnic is complete without refreshing beverages. Prepare a selection of thirst-quenching drinks to complement the picnic atmosphere. Offer a variety of options such as infused water with fruits and herbs, sparkling lemonade, and chilled herbal teas. To add a touch of elegance, set up a designated drink station with glass dispensers and stylish beverage glasses for your guests to enjoy.
