Picnic time is one of our favorite things to do during summertime; there is something magical about sitting on blankets in the sunlight and sharing great food, wine and talks with the people who are important to you. It is around the blankets you laugh together, drink homemade fresh juice, share you best summer memories, and tell secrets and stupid stories when the wine hits the blood.
We already packed our baskets and can’t wait for a summer full of picnics and memories.
If you want to come along, below you can find inspiration on what to pack for a perfect picnic.
First of all you need a basket, a tote bag or backpack is fine, but a basket makes it all the more elegant. A small radio or speaker is always a good idea so you can relax and listen to music and perhaps do a little dancing to some fresh summer tunes. You will need a carafe, we recommend one with cups in different colors, this will make it easy to tell which cup belongs to who. Don’t forget a knife to cut the cheese, salami, and fresh fruit. Most important of all are a couple of blankets to sit on. Layer a few in different colors and the sitting will automatically feel more warm and cozy. A bonus is the bigger space to spread your picnic out on – which means more friends can join.
Our Cristal Carafe with five cups in different colors makes it easy to separate your cup from your friends’
It is all about minimal prep. Make tasty sandwiches with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella before you leave home. Don’t forget the drinks. Make a fresh ice tea drink which is enjoyable for the entire family. Use a teabag in a carafe full of water, let the tea chill for a couple of hours, and the result will be a fresh and perfect cooling summer drink.
Remember there are no rules for when to picnic, you can do a picnic breakfast, picnic dinner, picnic party. In the park, the forrest, the beach or in your backgard. As long as you have packed the basket right, nothing can stop you from picnic all day and everywhere during the summer.
We can’t wait to picnic with you!
