Picnic Food and Accessories
Picnic baskets at the ready for the return of everyone’s favourite summer activity. A picnic in the park is fun for the whole family, but having the right outdoor tableware is key to making sure soggy sandwiches don’t put a dampener on the day.
Aside from the delicious sandwiches and other park-friendly food, most of the fun of a picnic comes in picking out pretty picnicware. Create a floral scene with our pressed flowers and hazy days napkins. They not only look lovely, but are ideal for mopping up those inevitable spillages on your favourite picnic rug. Pair them with the entire melamine outdoor tableware range, and your scene will be full of the sunshiny joys of the season.
Ice is always nice
There’ll be no lukewarm drinks at your picnic party with the Lékué Ice Cube Box Tray. This smart box holds a whopping 132 ice cubes, and it comes with a fun honeycomb-shaped tray that doubles as a lid for the box – a design we’re sure you’ll love. It’s made from 100% platinum silicone and ABS plastic, as well as being completely dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.
Whether you’re adding your ice cubes to juice for the kids or a cheeky G&T or two for the adults, our acrylic glasses won’t have you worrying about smashed glass on the picnic blanket. This range of picnicware is perfect for toasting the great British events of the summer – whether that’s a bank holiday street party, or the Wimbledon final. Sip, sip, hurray!
Insects be gone
Keep uninvited insects away from your picnic spread with our range of food covers, like our fabric elasticated range. These lovely dish covers are made from breathable, recyclable cotton, and come in four different sizes and colours to stretch over your entire dish range comfortably. Pop up food covers are also a great option at a picnic, easily folding up to protect salads, cakes, bakes and more, and folding back down again when it’s time to tuck in.
A citronella candle will also do the job of keeping insects away, because luckily for you, they aren’t too keen on the gentle scent of citronella oil. Our LED colour-changing candle will add some ambience to your outdoor scene, magically changing from blue to purple, green and pink thanks to the heat-activated LED.
Make the party portable
Any alfresco dining opportunity is the perfect time to try those posh dressings and pickles you’ve had your eye on. The Cottage Delight Basil Pesto Dressing is packed with the yummy flavours of aromatic basil, rich cheese, and zesty lemon – and we think it’s particularly tasty on a fresh tomato salad or drizzled over a whole burrata. Or why not sample Hawkshead Relish Company’s delicious black garlic ketchup at your next picnic? Perfect for dipping, dunking, or adding to dishes before the day, the beautifully rich and sweet flavour is one we’re sure you’ll enjoy.
