Have yourself a stylish picnic at home with Spode’s top picnic tips.
The best thing about picnics? They are a feast you can enjoy anywhere. And what’s even better about picnicking at home? Forget the paper picnic plates, you can serve it on your fanciest china. Oh, yes.
So, seek out the sunniest spot in your garden, balcony… or even your living room and have yourself a stylish picnic at home with Spode’s top picnic tips:
1. Be Comfortable
The perfect at-home picnic calls for cosy blankets and plump cushions layered on the ground surrounding your picnic spread. If you’re setting up in the garden, choose a spot close to sweet-smelling blooms, or under a tree for a spot of cool shade.
2. Pick ‘n’ mix your favourite food
Picnics are the ideal pic ‘n’ mix feast you can tailor to your family’s tastes. Serve up your favourite deep-filled sandwiches, mini pork pies, green salads and fresh fruit. And of course, sweet treats too. Traybakes are the perfect homemade bake that can be bitesize and are easy to share around the picnic table.
3. Serve in Style
Well it wouldn’t be a very Spode picnic if it wasn’t served in extraordinary style now would it? Show off your nibbles on the finest sandwich trays, side plates and bowls. And don’t forget, your teapot and teacups aren’t just for tea. Use them to serve up some ice cold lemonade or even a teacup or two of your favourite gin and tonic. After all, life tastes better sipped from Spode.
Why not turn your next celebration into an outdoor picnic occasion? If the weather is on your side, treat your loved one to a birthday afternoon tea served up under the sun. A cake stand piled high with sandwiches and scones. What a treat!
