National Picnic Week: Styling your Summer Picnic
It’s officially summer. Hooray! And it just so happens to be National Picnic Week too. So, with the sun set to shine this week, join us in planning our next picnic occasion.
Do you like eating al fresco? We sure do here at Spode. Any excuse to use your beautiful ceramics in a different setting, right? Our picnic tableware will certainly make whatever you serve at your next picnic look even more spectacular. Trust us.
So here’s our top Spode picks to style the perfect picnic this week and for the rest of the season.
Go Bold with Blue
Find the perfect picnic plates with our new Blue Room Sunflower collection. Blend in with your surrounding with the all-over print of sunflowers and convolvulus, whilst making a showstopping statement with the classic shade of blue. Serve up a leafy green salad in the deep salad bowl, and pair with matching < a href="https://www.spode.co.uk/spode-blue-room-sunflower-8-inch-salad-plates-set-of-4">salad plates and sandwich trays for the ultimate spread.
Cool and Casual
The calming palette of pale grey and creamy white from our Pure Morris collection will ensure a comfortable, settled atmosphere at your picnic set-up. The intricacies of the Morris and Co. pattern add intrigue and sophistication to your picnic table, whilst the subtle shades elevate the colours of your edible treats. Serve up brightly watermelon slices on the Pure Morris platter and fill the Pure Morris Candy bowls with grapes or homemade dips and coleslaw.
Turn your picnic spread into a work of art with our Ruskin House collection. The three delicate patterns will perfectly complement your leafy surroundings and the collection has everything you need for a picnic feast.
Use a mix of different sized plates to add to the relaxed atmosphere, mixing and matching with both size and pattern. Pile crusty bread rolls high on the buffet plate, fill the serving bowl deep with a Mediterranean cous cous, and have an assortment of quiche, cheese, fruit and meat served on plates spread across your picnic blanket. Dreamy.
The best things about picnics are they can be enjoyed anywhere you like, even at home. For tips on hosting a fabulous picnic at home, indoor or out, take a look at our 4 Tips for a Very Spode Picnic at Home.
