Picnic Date Night in a Jar
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I am so looking forward to spring and warm weather. There’s nothing like getting outside and enjoying those perfect temperatures in the evenings with your special someone.
We’ve gone through quite a few of our weekly date night ideas in a jar that work indoors and we even came up with a fun movie night in a jar to get cuddly with a movie. But this picnic date night idea works both indoors and outside.
Let’s get started on this fun (and easy) picnic date night jar.

How Do I Make this Picnic Date Night in a Jar Craft?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a date night ideas playlist on YouTube, here is our picnic date night in a jar video tutorial.
- Wide-mouth quart jar
- Small sauce jar
- Sliced cheese
- Hard salami slices
- Single serve peanut butter
- Small spoons
- Paper napkins
- Round crackers
- Dark chocolate
- Clear favor bags
- Red cardstock

- Slice cheese and salami and place slices inside clear plastic favor bags. Tie a ribbon around the top of each bag to secure.
- Break the dark chocolate into chunks and place the chunks in a clear favor bag. Tie a ribbon around the top.
- Place olives inside the small sauce jar and tighten the lid.
- I used a single-serve peanut butter for the crackers along with a couple of small spoons. Place the single serve peanut butter cup in the bottom of the jar.
- Place the jar of olives on top of the peanut butter cup.Fold the paper napkins in half and place them behind the olive jar. Add the small wooden spoons to the side of the olive jar.
- Fill the remaining space around the olive jar with round crackers.
- Place the bags of cheese, salami and chocolate on top.
- Cut a piece of red card stock the size of the jar top and place it on top of the inner lid. Screw the ring on to the top of the jar.
- Print the printable tag and punch a hole in the corner with a hole punch.
- Thread a piece of red ribbon through the hole in the corner of the gift tag.
- Tie the tag to the top of the jar and finish by tying the ribbon in a bow.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
