Late Summer in Style
It may feel like summer is slowly coming to an end… but don’t worry there is plenty more. Some may even say the best is yet to come. Some of you may still have holidays planned and outings with friends. Some of you are still looking forward to taking your summer time off and spend time with your family and your friends.
The sun still stays out for longer, you’ll find you and your friends daydreaming about those unforgettable BBQ’s and garden parties from the past. The kind where friends and family all get together for a good laugh in the garden. In your green lawns with blue skies and the sun shining all day long. There’s no reason why these memories shouldn't be relived and they will be. Regardless of the size of your outdoor space – whether you have a small patio out the front, or a large lawn out the back – there are so many ways to throw an unforgettable garden party or BBQ that your friends and family will be daydreaming about for many months ahead.
If you live by the beach or have a beach holiday planned or even a BBQ in your back garden then you will need to get your essentials to make sure you have the best beach day or BBQ. Picnics have always been a staple of British summer and this year will be like all others.
Picnics are the best direction to go in when it comes to having the best beach day or the best BBQ with friends.
We have put together a few pieces that you will need to create the perfect picnic
Food- this is one of the main reasons we enjoy a picnic so much! Good bread and snacks, dipped in hummus with some carrot and cucumber sticks. Freshly made sandwiches, a charcuterie board with all you favourite meats, cheeses and olives. Strawberries for desert and of course some nice and cool beverages. There is nothing more satisfying than a cool drink on a hot summer day. Food that is easy to serve and eat is always a good idea. Despite the need for cutlery and crockery that we have listed above, we should note that the less accessories you bring with you, the more space you will have for food and drinks. If you are careful and manage to avoid the sand getting everywhere, you can enjoy any kind of food.
Drinks; Don't forget the bottle opener. It may sound simple and logical, but many beach beer gatherings are ruined when it turns out that no one has a bottle opener or a metal fork to open the bottle. If you are going to consume wine, the corkscrew is simply a must!
The best picnic blanket that will ensure you comfort on the beach is our Nordic Picnic snug. We recommend a Nordic picnic snug. We have lots of options when it comes to colours, sizing and personalisation. There is something for everyone at Nordic Snug. With a waterproof backing this is the perfect picnic blanket for you. The water-resistant backing comes in 5 different colours: Khaki, bright green (lime), Navy, bright pink (cerise) and black. Our recommendation is to choose a bright colour for one of the sides. So if you go for a black water-resistant backing, choose a bright fleece colour! If you really want to picnic in-style, then choose our fleece picnic snug from Nordic Snug. These are in a beautiful array of colours, in some of our most popular designs.
