Style at Home (UK) - - Do It Perfect Picnics -

Whether you’re lucky enough to have pic­turesque rolling coun­try­side right on your doorstep or maybe you’re plan­ning an ur­ban ex­cur­sion in the heart of your city, we’ve com­piled the ul­ti­mate guide to the perfect pic­nic. From our top tips, scrump­tious recipes and the best buys to en­joy­able games and key lo­ca­tions, we’re here to make sure you have ev­ery­thing you need for an idyl­lic day out with your friends and fam­ily.

A fam­ily pic­nic is the perfect ex­cuse to head out and en­joy the great Bri­tish sum­mer. It’s a bril­liant way to keep the kids oc­cu­pied, while also en­cour­ag­ing them to be closer with na­ture. So get your blan­kets and bas­kets out of hi­ber­na­tion and head out into the wilder­ness for an al­fresco ex­plo­ration – or if you don’t want to ven­ture too far, turn your gar­den into a pic­nic area.

bring along a muf­fin tray a nd pop in the mid­dle of your blan­ket – it’s a great way to make sure your drinks stay stand­ing

Take plenty of rugs and blan­kets so every­one can wrap up if the sun goes in
