PACKING THE PERFECT PICNIC BASKET – MUST-HAVES AND SPECIAL EXTRAS

Bonding with family and friends should be a top priority in our fast-paced lifestyle. Throw in a sunny summer day and picnic basket filled to the brim with all your favourite things, and voila! A special moment to last a lifetime. Idyllic, no? But where to start to make it extra special?

Outside in

In order to pack the perfect picnic with just that little extra you need the bare necessities. Choose the stone washed Botanical picnic basket for one that’s durable but still beautiful with a built in cooler section. Perfect for lunch with the family.

Another essential to remember is a soft blanket to spread under a shady tree on your picnic. Or, to add a little something extra, why not go to the beach? A fun yellow beach towel is perfect for lazing around on a warm summer’s day.

Of course, a picnic wouldn’t be a picnic without ice-cold lemonade. To make sure it stays cool, you need a picnic cooler in its own shade of sunshine to match your new yellow towel.

Inside out

Tupperware has come a long way since the 80’s! The Sistema range is tailor-made to keep food fresh and sealed for on the go. There are many different sizes to hold every treat imaginable so make sure to stock up with large and small containers.

If you want to keep things classy and display your picnic once you get there, the Guzzini Grace salad bowl is an aesthetic win for any feast. It is also acrylic, so even though other things are spilled, tears won’t be.

Lastly, wine. Ah, if there is any way to make a day extra special, it is by celebrating the occasion of a happy life with a bottle of good wine. Make sure to take along your Menu blade wine set to toast the end of a wonderful meal shared with those you love.

There is nothing better than making those around you happy. Take advantage of the summer months and atmosphere of love still lingering from Valentine’s day to treat your special people. After all, what would life be if we didn’t stop, eat a sandwich and have a laugh every now and then?
