Pack your hamper: how to plan the perfect picnic
TO VENTURE OUT INTO THE GREAT OUTDOORS WITH A DELICIOUS PICNIC HAMPER IS ONE OF THE GREATEST JOYS OF SPRING/SUMMER.
Whatever your personal picnic style, our tips will help you enjoy our most delicious delights to the fullest.
However picturesque the surrounding location, your actual picnic spot should be flat, dry and smooth enough for you to spread out your blanket and relax without worrying about unbalanced drinks or unexpected thistles.
Keep your food delicious until you’re ready to eat it with insulated flasks and cool bags and by ensuring strong flavours and oily dressings are safely contained.
Mix it up
Picnics aren’t quite like normal meals, so break the rules. Enjoy unusual combinations of foods on your plate or eat dessert between courses. Pre-slice scones, cakes and tarts into small servings so guests can try a little of everything.
Linen napkins and salad tongs or finger foods and paper plates – it’s a matter of individual taste how formal or casual you make your picnic. Whatever you choose, think beyond the meal and pack plenty of bags for tidying up time.

The Covid-19 pandemic has taught us all how to celebrate differently and to make an occasion of something when we can. Having a picnic presents a nice opportunity to go all out, particularly as spring is here and the flowers look amazing at the moment! What ideas do you have?
