The warm weather is finally here and it is time to savor the joys of summer, among them the traditional picnic. But outdoor eating is more than a matter of creating a delicious menu and finding the perfect spot with a view. Picnicking in comfort requires a minimum of equipment, which, if carefully chosen, can make all of the difference. Here are four practical and elegant accessories that add to the delights of meals in the open air.
With this set of rattan accessories, the homeware division of budget-clothing label Zara has brought a new level of comfort and elegance to feasting in the park. When in transit, the chair can be stored flat so that it takes up very little space, so too can the rattan tray with its folding legs.
Circular or square, it’s a matter of taste
Seasoned picnickers will appreciate the design of this blanket with in-built waterproof backing proposed by Scandinavian brand H&M. It also has a clever carry strap with hook and loop fastening.
For those who just love to be different, there is also a marine-print circular version.
