Cocktail Picnic Out On the Boat

Is there anything more relaxing than getting some friends together, packing a bottle (or few) of rose`, an assortment of light snacks and getting out on the water for a boat cocktail cruise?  This is our vintage 27′ Folmer.  Apparently one of only 2 still in existence.  It is a classic launch and with it’s center engine cover makes it perfect for entertaining!  I packed simple items such as cheese, crackers, some freshly picked cherry tomatoes, some fruit and a sliced very vanilla pound cake for a sweet treat.  There was also some sliced smoked sausage and thin pretzel rods which you don’t see here.  Pack foods that travel well and don’t need to be fussed over.  The key is in the presentation.  This way you as the host/hostess can enjoy as well!

This basket is one of my favorite things!  I love the sturdy wooden lid and the solid construction.  Just click on this post title for the link!
