Alfresco Adventures - Celebrate National Picnic Week In Style

With National Picnic Week upon us and the sun slowly making an appearance, we’re taking some time out to show you how to pair your summer style with the perfect spread. 

Read on to discover how you can up your style in the park this season…

Pack The Perfect Spread…

 

We don’t know about you, but when it comes to a picnic, the food is key! Keep it easy and opt for finger foods that travel well. Layer up your basket with veggie rainbow sandwiches, mini pork pies, chorizo empanadas, bacon wrapped drumsticks and smoked salmon scotch eggs for a twist on the traditional. They’re perfect in a cool box and will ensure your guests feel satisfied. Finish with a delicious dessert – traybakes and loaf cakes are ideal options which you can slice before packing. With your rainbow feast ready, keep the colours rolling with your outfit. We love our Janine Dress for a fierce pop of delicious orange or the Lynette dress for those who prefer a print that packs a tasty punch! Pair with pretty sliders and a hair band and you’ll be the perfect match to your picnic basket. 

Make Your Toast On Trend…

Nothing says picnic like a pitcher of Pimm’s and we love this quintessentially British tipple on a blanket in the sun. However, we know the Emma Wallace Woman always likes to up the ante, so why not add in some sparkling champagne to upgrade your Pimm’s to a Pimm’s Royale! Mix 1 ½ ounces of Pimm’s with 3 ounces of Brut Champagne alongside sliced cucumber, orange, strawberry, and mint. With that regal feeling in mind, you’ll need to dress the part. Our Jenny Dress brings the same level of sparkle as that bottle of fizz with its sequins, whilst we could imagine the Duchess of Cambridge herself wearing our Chris Dress at any garden get together. Layer on a pair of court shoes and a ladylike handbag and you’re ready to be the Queen of your own party. 

Keep It Comfy…

Whilst the park is the perfect setting for a picnic, sitting on the grass can quickly become uncomfortable. Why not pack some throw pillows and beautiful cashmere blankets to create an alfresco den for you and your guests to lounge in style. Keeping it comfy is also key when it comes to your outfit. We love our Lora Jumpsuit for just this reason. Crafted in soft jersey, it’s perfect for letting you feel laid back without compromising on your style credentials. Wear with a pair of white sneakers and your hair in a high pony for the ultimate in comfy chic. 

Turn Up The Volume…

 

If you’re taking to the park for a party, then a custom playlist will help take your picnic to the next level. Hit Spotify and custom create the soundtrack that best suits your squad’s vibe. Whether it’s female empowerment anthems that will have you up dancing or Ibiza chill vibes for a laid-back feel. Don’t forget you can also up the volume on your outfit. Why not opt for an epic print to bring the noise? We love the monochromatic style of our Teri Jacket for those who want to level up. Pair with jeans, a white tee and sneakers for a casual cool option or pair with the matching Dawn Skirt for a real smash hit.  

Up The Fun Factor…

Chatting, chilling, and relaxing is what it’s all about, but if you want to up the fun then a few picnic games will get everyone on their feet. Boules, ring toss or even a board game will add a playful dimension that gets everyone involved. If you decide to add some movement then ensure your outfit can tackle the change of pace. We love our Shari Shorts and matching Michele Top for its sporty, laid back style that’s perfect for an impromptu game. 

Now you know how to host the ultimate outdoor get together, it’s time to send the invites out and get ready for that social soiree.
