How to host the Perfect Picnic
Picnics Made Perfect
Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to plan lazy afternoons with loved ones sharing a beautiful picnic in the great outdoors. Whether you’re planning a romantic picnic for two, or a potluck style get-together with friends, we’ve put together some fresh picnic ideas, and easy food ideas to ensure you’re picnic-ready, wherever you’re headed.
Picnics with Family and Friends
Looking for picnic ideas for family and friends? We’ve got you covered. Make life easier and more fun by asking everyone to bring a dish, that way there’ll definitely be something for everyone. Why not pick a theme? From charcuterie and cheese boards with share and tear bread and delicious homemade salads for a countryside theme, to Greek mezze for a more continental take. Whatever way you picnic there’s a few essentials you’ll need.
There’s nothing like a beautiful hamper to set the scene. Our Classic hamper is full of picnicware in a traditional wicker basket. Inspired by ‘60s music festivals, our brightly hued, Bandana print lining adds an atmospheric touch. It contains four place settings, with everything you need from china plates and stainless steel cutlery to wine goblets. You’ll also need a cooler bag to keep food fresh and drinks cool, picnic blankets and seat pads for extra comfort.
What’s more, our acrylic pomegranate glassware is great for outdoors - especially with the little ones rushing about. Serve your picnic delights in our lightweight bamboo serve-ware, with lids to keep little dips or big salads fresh and safe from spilling over. Now all that’s left is to plan a date, invite the gang and kick back, relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of a picnic with friends and family in the great outdoors.
The Lovers Picnic
If it’s a romantic picnic you’re planning, think about a pretty meadow or a spot that means something special to you. Our romantic Heart Hamper is perfect for dreamy picnic dates and making new memories with a loved one. Designed in a unique heart shape, the basket is crafted from traditional willow and lined with our beautiful hand-drawn Patchwork print. This decadent hamper has glass wine goblets, china plates and stainless steel cutlery to make it even more special. Plus a very handy corkscrew. Why not add a coordinating patchwork picnic blanket and seat pads for comfort or take one of our delicious smelling Citronella candles to set the mood and scare off the mosquitoes? Fill your basket with gourmet delicacies from a farm deli, mixed with homemade treats for a more personal touch, with anything from focaccia, dips to share, olives, local cheeses and grapes to paté and smoked salmon, mini quiches and pies. And don’t forget a sweet treat too, chocolate covered strawberries pair perfectly with a bottle of pink Prosecco. Picnic food ideas for couples - made easy!
On the Go Picnics
If you’re planning on going for a hike, or you’re off for a beach picnic, a backpack set is the way to go. They’re easy to carry, especially if you need a free hand to help little ones carry buckets and spades, plus they’re super convenient. Our beautiful hand-painted print picnic backpack will bring the joy of picnic heaven to the beach. It already comes with everything you need to eat and drink for four. And there’s plenty of room to fill with everyone’s favourite treats. If the beach is your destination, a picnic blanket is great for keeping sand out of toes whilst you eat. And don’t forget to bring plenty of water bottles.
Wherever and whoever you choose to picnic with, do it in style for picnic perfect memories to be made.
