Peachy Picks: Aesthetic Picnics

Peachy Picks

Welcome to the first release of Peachy Picks. Each week we will release a topical article to help you better curate your life and live the Peachy way!

This week we are discussing all things PICNICS. If you are from Sydney you’ll know that all we’re allowed to do at the moment is picnic, so why not do it in style?

What you will need

A picnic blanket and basket

We've listed these two together because they're equally important to styling the best picnic. Whilst you can't go wrong with a classic wicker picnic basket, you can look to add your style in the form of an alternative blanket. Think moroccan rugs for pops of colour or lightweight cotton blankets for an airy relaxed feel.

Boards, plates and cutlery

Before you can plan or dig into the food, you need to consider how you'll display everything. In a world where the highlight of your month is sitting on a blanket in a park for a few hours with a friend, you have to make the most of your space with the appropriate setting.

We recommend either the Oliver Deluxe Cheese Board or Robin Long Cheeseboard to set all of your snacks and avoid a mess of bags and containers on your blanket. Share directly off the board or purchase some bamboo disposable utensils and plates for a simple, eco-friendly way to avoid additional cleanup.

Snacks and drinks

Coming into spring, the warmth calls for refreshing drinks and fresh fruit to keep you feeling cool through your picnic. We recommend a cool iced tea in our Molly Tea Infuser, along with watermelon, mango and all of the Australian summer classics. Pastries are a great choice to include, especially if starting off with a morning session.

With the government allowing alcoholic drinks at even more picnic locations over the month of October, now is the perfect time to grab a few seltzers or premix some cocktails and kick back for an extended session in the afternoon sun!
