One of the questions that we’re most frequently asked is how to pack for the perfect picnic. We’re so lucky that we live in a city where we don’t have to worry too much about packing wind breaks and anoraks, so it’s really just a few essentials that you need and you’re good to go!
As gorgeous as wicker hampers are, they can be bulky and of fairly limited use outside of the picnic world! That’s why we love farmers baskets so much. They’re light weight and you can pop lots of goodies in them. You can use them for the beach, super market or around the house for blankets when they’re not being used for picnic adventures.
We’re huge lovers of the British brand Falcon Enamelware. Enamel is incredibly durable and adds a lovely vintage vibe to any picnic. You just need plates and tumblers – nothing too fancy required!
A wooden board for your cheeses and meats adds a sophisticated touch ( plus you can put your cups on it to stop that oh so annoying picnic habit of losing your wine as your cup tumbles into the grass!).
Proper napkins make a great addition and can be used to cover food to keep any flying creatures away too!
And finally, we love to use bamboo cutlery. It’s way better for the environment than nasty plastic and looks way prettier too!
To make your life easier, we’ve curated The Perfect Picnic Set. It makes a wonderful gift along with one of our vouchers, as an add on when you order a picnic or just as it is!
Just email us if you’d like to buy one!
