Smiles a-plenty – it’s National Picnic Week and here at Country Days we’re seizing the opportunity to get together with friends and family over a spread of finger-teasing nibbles and tutti-frutti coolers!
As a much-loved summertime tradition, picnicking celebrates Britain’s beautiful open spaces and seasonal produce across the sun-kissed months. Watch our latest The Country Decorator video to share our perfect picnic picks…
Homemade deli-inspired delights deserve to be presented in style. Unpack your full-to-the-brim picnic basket and dispense goodies in to delicious serveware. The bright and cheerful colour pop bamboo bowls from Oliver Bonas are feather light making them the perfect portable choice. With an on-trend burst of colour on one side, these dare-to-be-different lovelies are sure to make a stylish statement at any spread!
As we all know, alfresco dining has to be practical. As luck would have it, Laura Ashley has come-up trumps with the ideal solution for drinks. The vintage-inspired set of six glasses in blue metal carrier is oh-so-pretty and will ensure any cheeky spillages are kept at bay.
Plastic is fantastic! Colour your picnic happy with durable and family-friendly melamine serveware to ensure a relaxing (and breakage-free) outing. The petite curved cups from Rice at Debenhams come in a set of six assorted pastel colours – damage control in its chicest form!
Whether you’re stealing an impromptu half an hour in your lunch break or unwinding for the day with family and friends, picnicking couldn’t be easier with the right kit. In these short-but-sweet summer months, there’s no better incentive to claim your spot, unpack the hamper and enjoy the great outdoors with a country style, buffet!
