The Perfect Summer Picnic

24.8.15

I can't believe that it's nearly the end of August? When did this happen?! Savour the last few days of summer and plan a picnic with these tips from Laurel & Wolf.



Keep all your bases covered

Head to your favourite park and lay down your picnic blanket. Keep in mind that the blanket is the base so you’ll probably want to coordinate the rest of your picnic decor with it. Laurel & Wolf's in-house designer Jessica opted for one in striped neutrals and pastel tones with and a slightly worn feel to soften the rest of the picnic decor.

Support is necessary when you’re dining on the ground and pillows kind of have a way of pulling the whole ‘perfect picnic’ look together. Jessica chose nautical stripes, navy, and pretty pastel cushions to pair with the blanket.


Delicious food

Sandwiches prepared on ciabatta are always a good go-to. Pair them with grapes or your fruit of choice on a simple melamine tray.


Fresh-squeezed lemonade is a picnic must. Pour it into colorful plastic glasses for a festive look with no risk of broken glass. Since your food and drink won’t be sitting on a solid surface, a serving tray is much-needed. Plop a few reusable ice cubes (this way you don’t have to deal with the mess of melted ice) and a fun straw into your cup, add a bouquet of fresh blooms on the side, and you have a look that’s made for Pinterest.


Make sure to finish it off with dessert!


Fun activities

If you’re going to be lounging around all day it’s smart to pack easy outdoor activities like croquet to keep everyone entertained. You should also bring an extra blanket in case your party grows or it starts to get chilly. If you lose track of time and you’re suddenly picnicking in the dark, charming lanterns will keep your party well-lit. Carry all your extra goods in a rustic crate and your picnic will look complete.
