Sweet summer is on the horizon and here at the Sartle office we’re already making plans for lazy Sundays and sunny day picnics (Dolores Park, anyone?). You know there ain’t no picnic like an art history picnic, so we’ve taken some time to concoct a picnic menu fully approved by your favorite artists.

First up, the most classic picnic food of all– sandwiches. Since we know y’all can be a little picky, we’ve got not one but TWO sandwich options: the babe and egg sandwich or the kid-friendly deli meat supreme (it comes with grapes!).

Next up, something slightly less conventional. We’re aware that spaghetti isn’t your standard picnic fare, but we love carbs. And some people are vegan, right? Spaghetti is vegan. Spaghetti is a blessing. Everyone loves spaghetti.

Okay, put the damn spaghetti away. It’s time to bust out the dessert(s). First, pie. Because pie is the American staple, and because every day is National Pie Day.

There’s really nothing more perfect for a summer picnic than a nice slice of pie

… except for maybe an ice cream cone. 

And yeah, we know that ice cream melts and isn’t really picnic appropriate. But we also know that after you pack up the picnic basket and start to head home there’s going to be some kind of an ice cream truck beckoning seductively and we’re all adults here so we know that ice cream provides really important vitamins and minerals for doing all sorts of healthy things. Ice cream. Gotta have it.

What a picnic. Move over, Martha Stewart– Sartle might just be the next hot party planner ‘round these parts. If you’re still hungry, check out more art-with-food here
