The popular expression “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” has well and truly lost its comedic value, I say this as I gaze at the (unethically cheap) empty bottles of wine I am too embarrassed to say I have purchased. You’re probably questioning what there is to do now summer is approaching and it’s almost criminal to keep your tan and those pins locked up. Not to fear, I have the solution!
What is timeless, a classic if you will? What is stylish yet versatile, delicious but a little bit cheeky at times? And no, I’m not talking Robbie Williams or 2000’s Brad Pitt! To your surprise, I’m referring to picnics. I hearing yawning, I know at least one of you reading this just rolled your eyes. This is because you don’t know how to picnic like a pro. Consider me your guru, and this blog…your bible.
How do you acquire everything you need to fill your picnic arsenal in such a short amount of time? What do you do when everything starts to mirror an episode of Grand Designs. The double glazed windows are stuck in transit, the last bit of the budget was spent on artisanal doorknobs and Kevin doubts the build will be finished on time. Your picnic is looking like a flop. A simple ‘add to cart’ will change that. It is THAT SIMPLE!
Back to basics, let’s cover the most iconic al fresco essentials… the picnic rug and cane basket. Dorothy was all over this trend like a dirty rash in The Wizard of Oz. Could you blame her? Our Picnic Providore and Deluxe Picnic Chest Gift Hamper’s both include vintage-inspired cane picnic baskets! With one of these in hand you will look a little like Gatsby whether the yellow brick road leads to your local park or backyard. These picnic chests are overflowing with the sweet, savory and spicy. We have basically curated a charcuterie board for you and tied it all together in a traditional yet luxe basket. Did we mention these hampers come with a bottle of bubbles too?
Without evaluating the level of dust on it, you already know the picnic rug at home is in need of a serious upgrade! Our tartan picnic blankets range from blends of neutral and earthy tones to striking combinations of colour, all-encompassing an enduring classic design. Our picnic blankets are as snatched as you! Want to level up again? Perfect. Set up one of our portable wooden picnic tables with foldable legs, you can find these bad boys in the Picnic Table with Sparkling Hamper! Because popping a bottle of champagne is one thing – but having something sturdy to place your glass on is another. The days of drinking sparkling out of plastic cups and dreading spillage is officially over. Thank god…
We’ve set the foundations for you, now it’s time for you to place your order and set the date. Preparation is key here ladies and gentlemen…as is your outfit! Are we going loose linen or something white and tight? Perhaps not all white everything as it could look a bit Midsommar-esque?!
Our hampers are lavish, decadent, practical yet fashionable packages that prepare you for any and EVERY picnic. Effortlessly stylish and Pinterest-worthy without even trying! We can confirm that you are going to be crowned the local trend setter and we apologise in advance for the fanbase you’re about to acquire. Shop all our wonderful hampers here and find that perfect match for you on any picnic occasion.
