The perfect snacks
With any picnic, you want a good range of options that are not only delicious, but that are easy to eat so that you don't have to lug around cutlery with you.
Easy to make and made for sharing, a good cob loaf is also a good option, and you can find the recipe for a creamy French onion cob loaf dip here, as well as the recipe for a creamy cheese and bacon cob dip here.
Of course, grazing platters are the number one choice, because they include a range of finger-licking good treats for a picnic.
‘Fries Boards’ have emerged as the hot new entertaining craze, with people all over putting together amazing grazing platters featuring chips, chips and more chips. See more here.
Alternatively, you can take packaged snacks with you if you're wanting a quick and easy option, and the new Krave mixed grain bars are a great choice as they come in three delicious flavours.
There's also the new Creamery yoghurt range from Tamar Valley, and you can find them at Coles, Woolworths, Coles and independent supermarkets now, along with the Krave snack bars.
Long gone are the days where you would simply grab a random blanket and head to the park for a quick picnic, because sure, it might be easier, but where's the fun in that?
And, if you have the right essentials, it can be just as easy to set up, not to mention way more comfortable, and it will just make your picnic experience so much more enjoyable.
This stylish Quilted Picnic Blanket from Cotton On, which you can buy here, will bring the perfect level of comfort to your experience.
To really make your picnic extra special, some added extras will do the trick.
If you're craving something a little different, Dare’s new Sparkling Cold Brew is a tasty and refreshing afternoon pick-me-up, and you can find it at convenience outlets, independent retailers, and Coles.
You can also liven things up with music via a portable speaker, like the JBL GO 2, which you can buy here.
Plus, if it's a particularly sunny day, you can make your own shade with this Mirage 2 Metre Beach Umbrella, which you can shop here.
