Spring Picnic Hamper Ideas

Spring is in the air again and we know there’s no better way to make the most of warmer, longer days than a Spring picnic with friends and loved ones.

There are lots of reasons to gather everyone together (or just that one very special someone), and take off to a park, a winery, or just your own back garden, to have some fun and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Ideas for a wonderful Spring picnic include:

  • Family gatherings
  • Vintage girls days out
  • Bridal or Baby showers or even a gender reveal party
  • Birthday celebrations
  • A children’s party
  • Or even an incredibly romantic proposal!

These are just a few ideas but the list of reasons to have a Spring picnic in the great Aussie outdoors is endless.

Picnics can involve quite a bit of organisation and paraphernalia so our advice is to make a list and have everyone bring along one of the necessities: rugs, invitations, napkins, glasses, plates, games, soft drinks, cutlery etc. That just leaves the food and the tea………that’s where we can help!

Why not let us do all the hard work so you can relax, celebrate and enjoy the glorious Aussie Spring. It’s what we love to do.

Simply choose from our range of luxurious hampers and we’ll do the rest. Which hamper will fit your occasion best? It’s hard to choose but here’s our selection:

  • Luxe High Tea Hamper packed with indulgent treats like cakes, scones and preserves
  • Birthday Gift Hamper – filled with our delicious scones with jam and cream, fresh strawberries, sweet and savoury tarts, a selection of dainty ribbon sandwiches. This hamper even includes flowers to make a simple picnic into a real celebration!
  • The Gentleman’s Hamper might suit a slightly more substantial picnic with gourmet sandwiches, mini quiches, and rolls.
  • Our Children’s High Tea Picnic would light up any child’s birthday with a selection including mini quiches, cup cakes and adorable heart-shaped jam biscuits.

Naturally, our hampers contain one of our hand-picked selection of delicious organic teas in a beautiful tea box to suit the occasion: the perfect way to make any Spring picnic a luxurious treat. For a picnic, you can brew the tea in advance. For a refreshing Spring difference, why not try a cold-brew tea? It’s elegant, and surprisingly easy.

Our 5 top tips for cold-brewed tea:

  1. Brew and store your tea in a glass container – Plastic can stain and taint the tea with retained odours.
  2. Prepare your tea the day before your picnic.
  3. Black, Oolong, herbal and fruit teas should be brewed for 12 hours but check brewing instructions for green tea as it can taste bitter if brewed incorrectly.
  4. Use an infuser to cold-brew your tea to avoid having to strain it later.
  5. Ice is optional but might be a good idea in hot weather to keep your tea cold longer.

A hamper ensures your Spring picnic is a truly memorable, fun occasion because all the delectable goodies and lovingly created treats can cope with being transported – so they look and taste as elegant and delicious on your picnic rug as they did when they left our High Tea Parlour.
