Sundays are for the perfect picnic setup

Ahh… a Sunday picnic, what could be better?! When we think of the perfect Sunday, we think of friends gathered on large picnic blankets, lots of cosy outdoor cushions and far too much food. With spring in the air and picnics in the calendar, now’s the time to be thinking about how to put together the perfect picnic. The great thing about picnics is you can make them as understated or over-the-top as you want.

We believe the perfect picnic setup starts with the perfect picnic blanket. This sets the tone for the rest of the styling. If you’re like us, you’re bringing all the matching bits and bobs from outdoor cushions to beach chairs with you to make it an affair to remember.

If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying your picnic at the beach, don’t forget your beach towel, and for the little ones – a hooded beach towel (trust me, you’ll want one of these – they’re adorable!). Australia is known for a lot of wonderful things and number one is our beautiful warm weather so you’ll want to be sure you’ve packed a cooler bag and full of delicious cheeses, dips and drinks. Stay safe in the sun with a stylish sun shade like a trending beach umbrella with fringe or the must-have beach accessory of the moment, a beach cabana.

Don’t want to miss a thing for your perfect picnic setup? We’ve curated a checklist from the picnic mat to lay on, to the beach umbrella for shade from the sun, to ensure you won’t leave a thing behind!
