Pack Up A Picnic This Weekend!
We love to get out and about and make the most of the summer weather. We often head off on little adventures, we load up the car with all the essentials, buckets, spades, towels, swim suits, inflatables and of course a perfect picnic! It is all hands on deck, William (as the only man of the household) has the job of packing the car and Issy and I set about making and packing the most delicious picnic.
As we have been selling the fabulous RICE products for nearly 10 years we have quite a collection of picnic bags and hampers. We have heaps of gorgeous melamine plates, cups and bowls and we always take picnic rugs, blankets and cushions. We probably look pretty ridiculous with the amount of stuff we haul about with us, lugging it all down to the beach or into the woods, but we think it is worth it! We set ourselves up for the day, relax, play games, read and have a giggle. It is a really lovely time to catch up after a hectic week.
It is actually really fun to set up camp for the day, we take our drinks dispenser full with ice and squash, it keeps our drinks cool, and all the bugs out. We pack sardines and salads in our fabulous melamine stacking bowls or funky storage boxes all from RICE.
We always take an inflatable (we have an electric pump that we can plug into the car to inflate and deflate which is fab) We sometimes just use our inflatables as cushions, they are so soft and lovely to have a little snooze on (I did look a bit silly asleep in the middle of a park on a giant pelican but who cares! We also take our new beach sounds stereo by the fabulous Australian company Sunnylife. It uses your iPhone or iPod and it keeps it safe from water, sand and it keeps it safe from being dropped or broken. The quality is excellent and the volume is surprisingly loud!
Pintrest and Instagram are a really great source of inspiration for picnic idea’s, food, drinks, places to go and of course we have all the gorgeous goodies and essentials you could ever dream of for your fun filled, colourful and stylish picnic day out!
