Now that socialising is well and truly back on the agenda, you’ve probably got a fair few picnics in the diary for the summer already. But when it comes to throwing the ultimate picnic, a bit of pre-planning most certainly doesn’t go amiss.
From picking the perfect blanket to sit upon to bringing the prettiest plastic plates (Zara has a super chic gingham selection and Anthropologie has a beautifully bright Vera Neumann-inspired range), it’s all in the details when it comes to throwing a great picnic. You’ll want to make sure you’re appropriately dressed too, and what better outfit to wear to a British picnic than a gingham dress?
Of course, the food is also essential, as well your tipples – and these stylish drinks in cans are practically made for picnic boozing. However, if you are dead set on bringing a bottle of wine to the event, then you’ll need one of the summer’s hottest must-have accessories, a wine tote bag. Long and narrow, wine tote bags are made especially for transporting bottles of vino in, making them absolutely essential for picnics.
Nasty Gal just released a range of ‘Stop and smell the rosé’ wine totes, available in white and black, and there are plenty of other handmade options available on sites like Etsy, Not On The High Street and Depop – see for yourself below…
