Summer picnics are one of life’s simple pleasures, aren’t they? Every year, I look forward to those long breezy days when I can simply pick up a basket of fresh berries, a bottle of cooled wine and a French baguette on the way to our local park. Usually Balazs meets me there and we spend the afternoon on our blanket, barefoot, eating, chatting, reading or my favourite: playing a cloud shapes guessing game. Bliss!
Our old blanket got totally used up in recent years, so last week I went on a hunt for a lovely replacement. Here are the ten blankets and throws that totally tickle my fancy:
1. Anorak - Kissing rabbits.2. Terrain - Pendleton travel throw.
3. Scandinavian Design - Anna throw.
5. Scandinavian Design - Polka wool throw.
6. Cath Kidston - Check blanket.
7. Steven Alan - Tilden blankets.
8. Fine Little Day - Albertus blue blanket.
9. Crate&Barre - Hailey teal throw.
10. Chance - Turkish fouta.
(Also, silly little wish of mine is to be able to keep the next blanket intact for as long as I can, so I can pass it onto our future children as a special treasure and a memory of our fun times as a family).
Loves, do you picnic during summertime? Where do you go? Any of the blankets above caught your eye? Do tell! xo
P.S: How about this uber cool picnic box?
P.P.S: And those Mason jar meals would be great for picnics.
