Picnic Tables Available - No Reservations Required

from: Kathy Moran




One of the greatest social events ever dreamed up, a picnic is a
combination of food, family, friends, recreation, entertainment,
and merriment. At the first sign of spring, people begin firing
up their grills and taking their meals outdoors, and they don't
go back inside until the world freezes over once again. In fact,
there are some year-round, die-hard barbecuers who won't quit
unless someplace much larger and hotter freezes over, too.



Although the summer is filled with picnics, little is generally
known about how and where they originated. Listed as a new word,
"pique-nique" first appeared in the 1692 edition of Origines de
la Langue Françoise de Ménage. It is believed to have been a
combination of "piquer," meaning to "pick" or "peck" and
"nique," an obsolete word, which meant "trifle" or "little
pieces." It was described as a potluck gathering, to which
everyone brought a dish, and the food, transported in the first
picnic baskets, was set out for all to "peck at."



The word "picnic" was first introduced in English in 1748. In
the 19th century, a group of wealthy Londoners formed the Picnic
Society to promote this fashionable social affair, to which each
attendee was expected to bring food, as well as contribute some
form of entertainment. It was around the middle of the century
when it became associated with the outdoors, and the first
picnic blankets appeared. Its rapid rise in popularity soon led
to the invention of the picnic table.



Today, a picnic can be anything from a casual meal on the
porch, with paper plates and plastic forks, to a formal picnic
lunch, with gourmet food served on good china. It can be a large
gathering at a park, or a cozy lunch for two on a picnic blanket
in a scenic spot. A picnic can be a grand affair, planned or
months - perhaps even catered - or a spontaneous move outdoors
to enjoy the weather. No matter how differently they may be
defined, however, everyone agrees that picnics are fun!



Like the picnic itself, the picnic table has undergone many
transformations. With porches, decks, and patios becoming more
elaborate every year, and backyard gazebos popping up in record
numbers, outdoor entertaining has reached new heights. Beyond
barbecues, people are hosting dinners, formal parties, and even
weddings in their own backyards. In order to accommodate these
diverse uses, picnic tables have been created in a variety of
sizes, styles, shapes, colors, and materials, to fit any
occasion.



Besides the classic, rustic-looking cedar, oak, and pine
tables, there are elegant dining sets, sometimes made from
cherry or teak. Other tables are constructed from virtually
indestructible aluminum, thermo-plastic, vinyl, and polywood.
These are the tables you'll find lining hospital grounds,
industrial parks, office complexes, and college campuses. They
can be rectangular, hexagonal, octagonal, square, round, or
oval, with benches attached or detached.
