  • Imagine setting up the perfect ambiance at home, where you spread a picnic mat in the middle of the living room with bunch of colorful pillows around. As the sun sets over the city, make some traditional mezze, a platter of stuffed grape leaves, olives, hummus and pita on bamboo trays. As the main course, prepare a homemade shawarma, and baklava for dessert. Enjoy your meal with Turkish tea while listening to soothing Anatolian music. It's simple, intimate, and takes you on a culinary journey right at home.
  • Take it a notch higher by making your own traditional Middle Eastern lanterns. These DIY lanterns can be made by using simple materials and add a flicker of mystery to your setup. With dim lights, these lanterns can make the atmosphere even more magical. The entire evening could then be spent in each other's company, engaging in heartfelt conversations and making the bond even stronger.
  • Finish the evening with a favourite mutual movie or simply enjoy each other's company. This indoor picnic gives you both the warmth and intimacy of an outdoor picnic minus the unpredictability of weather or the interruptions of the bustling town.

Preparation steps:

  • Start by tidying up the living room and moving aside any unnecessary furniture. A spacious spot is required for this to work. Once your space is all set up, lay down a comfortable picnic mat and arrange the pillows around for a relaxed seating arrangement. You both can contribute to make the place more personal and comfy. Try to add as many Middle Eastern elements as possible to get an authentic experience.
  • Begin preparing the picnic food in the afternoon to give yourself plenty of time. The food should be ready by evening so that you can enjoy it while it's still warm. Try to include as many traditional Turkish dishes as you can prepare. Don't forget the Turkish tea to complement the delicious food you've prepared.
  • The DIY lanterns can be made by using tin cans and tea lights. Paint the outside of the tin cans with vibrant colors, create small holes in a pattern and place the tea light inside the can to create mesmerizing lanterns.

  • While lanterns can add a romantic touch to the setup, they should be handled with care to avoid any accidents. Always remember to put out the lights before you wrap up.
