Happy Thanksgiving From Party Picnic

We at Party Picnic wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a heartfelt thanks for your business and interest in our Picnic Store.

For those of you that have been on the Party Picnic website recently, you will notice that we have added an NFL Collection Page, which has received a lot of interest during football season. We have added Picnic Time's NFL Collection featuring Picnic Time's products with licensed NFL Football Logos. All 32 Teams are available with NFL football logos.

We have also added a Specials Page, where we will make special offers on our products. The four products that are the first to be added to this page are quality picnic baskets with an outdoor blanket that is being added at no extra charge. You may wish to Bookmark this page and check it out for our latest specials on a regular basis.

Be sure to check out the Party Picnic Blog and Facebook Fan Page for the latest news about our products and special offers, as well as the latest in food and picnic ideas, and recipes for your picnic and tailgating enjoyment.

Again, thank you, we really appreciate your business.
