The Perfect Summer Picnic

Warm summer days and long, golden evenings means it’s picnic season! All you need to have for the perfect summer picnic is a pretty basket (any shape or size will do), a blanket big enough for everyone in your party, and treats to share. Bring some bubbly to keep you refreshed (or maybe some homemade lemonade – recipe here)! I highly recommend Korbel’s Brut Rosé: it’s pink and filled with goodness.

Fruit and French bread will keep most happy, especially as an evening snack.

This basket is versatile – perfect for everything under the sun, from the beach to the park.  You can find your very own handmade French Basket here on Etsy. It’s a more affordable option compared to flying all the way to the markets in the South of France (although wouldn’t that be Nice).

Summer essentials

A picnic blanket can just be any old thing, but why not pick up something special on Etsy while you’re there? I found this one from Handloom Store all the way in LA. It’s a handmade 100% Turkish cotton towel. Believe it or not, it can be used as a scarf, a blanket, and yes, even a beach towel! It’s soft and durable, and so worthwhile.

After you’ve finished snacking and polished off your drink, grab a book to read (or just snooze) under a big old tree.

It definitely sparks a reminder of the carefree summers of childhood.  So please, turn back the hands of time, and have a picnic this summer. You won’t regret it!
