Summer holidays are here so get your picnic baskets at the ready! We at Live Laugh Giraffe love taking the kids out for the day and a picnic basket to take with you can help reduce costs and save long queues for junk food.
So what sort of thing do you pack in yours? Are you a traditional picnic family or would you go for something a bit different? Here are some tongue-in-cheek picnic basket ideas for you!
The Traditional English Picnic Basket
Ham or cheese sandwiches, pork pies, crisps, quiche, chocolate bars,
Cartons of juice, flask of tea
Try: It has to be a Melton Mowbray pork pie, these mini ones from the Sainsburys Taste the Difference range look delicious!
The Continental Picnic Basket
Baguette charcuterie selection, cheese selection, green salad
Fizzy water, bottle of red wine a must!
Try: If you like a bottle of red you can’t go wrong with Campo Viejo, Tempranillo, from Spain, sold in all good supermarkets.
The Wimbledon Picnic Basket
Smoked salmon sandwiches, pasta salad, cheese scones, strawberries and cream (of course!)
Elderflower cordial and Champagne
Try: It surely has to be Waitrose for all your elderflower cordial needs!
The Hipster Picnic Basket
Melon and prosciutto skewers, avocado toast, quinoa salad, cream cheese chocolate chip cookies
Lavender lemonade, craft beer
Try: Here are some easy to make skewers for the hipsters among you!
Let us know what’s in your picnic basket that’s always a crowd pleaser, or send us your fun picnic photos here! We would love to share them for you!
Enjoy the happy summer days ahead!
