Glamping for Beginngers: Wine & Dine Al Fresco

Glamping for Beginngers: Wine & Dine Al Fresco

Thank you Cameron Hughes for sponsoring this post. Wine and dine your way into summer and raise a toast to everyoneโ€™s favorite season!

We all know it gets waayy too hot in Houston. Thatโ€™s why, right now, April and May is my ideal weather for outdoors. The sun shines most the month. The days are long with sunset around 8. These all make for the best glamping weather. Speaking of glamping, one of our favorite activities to do for a romantic night is dining al fresco. No lie, I seriously keep a picnic basket full of blanket and throws I use to set up an impromptu spread. Something about dining in the open air just makes me super relaxed. Here are a few tips to make your next al fresco experience more enjoyable:

1.     Let someone else do the cooking

I always say, my favorite food is anything I did not have to cook. Getting take out is the perfect solution for outdoor dining, especially while camping. I always incorporate easy to transport foods like oranges, strawberries, cheese and nuts for a snack too.

2.     Always bring wine

Summer and wine goes hand in hand. I love a crisp Riesling like the the lot 622 or 633 from Cameron Hughes. Kevin loves the rich taste of a cab or blend like lot 625 and 612 from Cameron Hughes.

Cameron Hughes wine is only one of a few Direct-To-Consumer wine brands. Meaning they sell direct to the customer. This is the reason they are able to sell premium, luxury wines at ยฝ the price. The traditional wholesale method has passed hands more than 3 times with different wine distributors. Each time driving up the price of wine. I love the unique variety and the amazing selection they have as well!

3. Make it cozy

Bringing textures and layers turns a glamping picnic into a grammable moment. Layers of soft throws, leather or vegan leather picnic mats are not only functional but beautiful. Re-sealable containers and compostable single use serving wear makes clean up a breeze.
