Our Guide to Creating the Perfect Summer Picnic

In case you needed an excuse to dine alfresco.

29 June 2021 -

Summer isn’t complete without a picnic or two… 

and whether you are entertaining or just need an excuse to dine alfresco, creating a pretty picnic scene is the perfect way to mix things up.  

Although enjoying a picnic can be as simple as laying out a blanket and sharing snacks, you can easily elevate it for the occasion with a few things you likely already have in your home.  

Here is our guide to creating the perfect summer picnic: 

No. 1: Set the scene with textiles + linens

As an alternative to the traditional picnic blanket, create a cozy and laid-back seating with indoor + outdoor pillows and a patterned tablecloth on an elevated surface for function. 

No. 2: Add elevated + simple serveware 

Although picnics are synonymous with disposable serveware, mixing in some of your favorite indoor dining accessories can instantly take a picnic look to the next level. We love these pretty Melamine Paper Plates for ease, and they look so real that you might even fool your guests! 

No. 3: Simplify the food with shareable sides 

When it comes to picnic food, nothing is better than simple, shareable sides like salads, hummus, or even a skillet dish. Add some fruit or fresh produce from your fridge for color, and the look is complete!
