The Picnic Essentials
Besides the ultimate picnic spot and someone to share it with, there’s not much needed to enjoy a good old picnic in the park. But if you’re looking to have a perfectly prepared picnic, we have put together 10 of the essential items we recommend.
By bottled beverages we do mean our bottled cocktails of course. Enjoy the luxury of our already-made cocktails, perfect for picnics. Each one of our bottles contain two serves, so double the fun! Don’t forget to bring some plastic cups if you plan on sharing!
Picnics are great, but a little bit of background music makes them 10x greater. You could even create a spotify playlist for the ultimate picnic vibes.
Well hello, if you’re on a picnic without snacks then you’re doing it wrong! Nothing beats a good charcuterie box filled with all your fave salumi and cheeses, but why not go that extra mile and grab something hot from a nearby restaurant – check out our takeaway menu here.
Now this one seems obvious but is often overlooked after planning location, food and drinks. Save yourself the damp or itchy behind with a picnic rug or blanket, an old bed sheet or tapestry could also work.
Melbourne’s weather as we know can be complicating and deceiving at the best of times. We have all been there, after a couple of drinks in the park you come home to find yourself red raw and with major regrets.
Some form of cutlery
Have you ever bought a nice cheese and salumi board and forgotten a knife to cut it with and hoped that your biscuit would suffice? Yep, us too!
The last thing you want on your hunt for a picnic spot is grass filled with rubbish from previous picnickers. Do the right thing and collect all your empties and put them in the bin.
Share the mems and bring a camera. Well because, if there’s no photo proof then it didn’t happen!
Something to do
Other than gossiping away and listening to your ‘picnic summer 2021 vibes’ playlist, bring something fun to do. Maybe throw it back and bring some uno, or a frisbee!
