Summer is almost over but the heat is still at an all-time high. As we know, we only have a few days remaining to enjoy the summer heat. But worry not, setting up a picnic for your family and friends is not that hard! Fortunately, wherever you are in the UK, you’ll have a local park you can get lost in. Tip: You can check outThe National Trust to see the nearest one, just type in your postcode and it will give you park suggestions.
In order to have a fun and stress-free picnic with your family and friends, like most celebrations, the key is in planning.
It will be chaotic if you forget anything important but fret not, from picnic prep to our favourite picnic essentials, we’re here to guide you to throwing a summer picnic:
Think of all the snacks you want to indulge in during the picnic. Finger foods are ideal, and it’s much easier to prepare. Chips, cheese, fruits, and maybe pizza? Why not? Just make sure to add something healthy to get a perfect balance!
It’s best to pack light but there’s no harm in making sure you have everything you need. Anoxford storage bag will be perfect for a bigger crowd. Who wouldn’t want to bring just one bag and have everything they need?

Picnic Essentials: Drinks
If you’re bringing kids with you, make sure to bring non-alcoholic beverages. You always have the option to buy ice on your way to the park so it would be best to bring anice bucket as well.

Nevertheless, if you’re also bringing wine, make sure you have awine aeratorand corkscrew to open the wine bottles. This way, you no longer have to worry about decanting the wine and painstakingly look for a bottle opener!

Feel free to add to the list and bring everything you deem necessary. Just don’t overpack and hassle yourself or anyone else into bringing heavy bags to the park. Remember, you want to relax and enjoy!
