Picnic, Savoir Vivre, Wine, Blanket

Everything begins with a comfy blanket, a picnic basket filled with surprises, a sunny day, (or a rainy one), and a bit of romance. Arranging the perfect picnic is fun and should be customised to fit the one you love. First choose the perfect lunching place and you’re on your way.

To munch

Fortnum & Mason blinis topped with creme fraiche, Loch Fyne Scottish salmon or caviar.


Tunworth, Montgomery Cheddar and Cashel Blue are unique & tasty alternatives. Pair with a fresh baguette from your favorite bakery.

To drink

La Mortuacienne Pink Lemonade or Elixia raccoon removal near me Lemonade for people who prefer their nonalcoholic beverages with some elegance.


Champagne is perfect for any event, and so it’s the perfect libation for a picnic. Ruinart is a splendid Champagne from start to finish, but it’s really about choosing one that suits your taste. For wine, an unfussy Picpoul de Pinet or White Rioja are great choices to turn to. They are crisp, delicious and dependable. It’s generally better to steer clear of red wine in the event of accidental spills.

And always have water available. Hildon and Ty Nant’s classy glass jar minis are available. Furthermore, Fiji and Acqua Panna have mini plastic bottles that are best for transporting around.

Sweets to savour

Fresh strawberries with or without cream


A choice of macaroons in the French patisserie Laduree is the ultimate confection. The rose, pistachio, vanilla, and salted caramel tastes are extremely delectable and almost too beautiful to eat.

The end

A thermos of tea to accompany a batch of lavender biscuits out of our cherished Fortnum & Mason is the perfect way to finish a picnic they’ll never forget.


A cutting board is best to keep crumbs at bay and for cutting cheese and bread. Also real utensils and dishes are more authentic then their vinyl counterparts, and therefore make for a more elegant presentation.

Flameless candles are beautiful and perfect for sunset picnics.

Just a tiny radio with whatever songs you prefer (Chopin anybody ), in the background is a excellent addition.

Roses (sans thorns of course) or spigs of lavender to be strewn upon the blanket is especially romantic.
