Whether it’s your first date or your 1,000th, there’s nothing better than taking the time to stop sitting side-by-side staring at your phones, slow down and connect with someone who makes you see heart eyes.
Whip out the really big picnic rug and transform your backyard, local park or secluded beach spot into a cosy picnic date for two. We've got all the date ideas you need to plan the perfect picnic date.
SUNRISE BREKKY PICNIC
Chances are, if you have small children, you're a morning person by default. Get up before the birds to set up your brekky picnic and watch the sun rise from somewhere peaceful, even if it's just the backyard. Don’t forget the thermos of coffee and a big, fat bag of croissants.
SUNSET BONFIRE PICNIC
It might not be 100% legal to light fires on the beach, but you didn’t hear it from us. Spend the afternoon in the waves and finish up with a mini bonfire (weather permitting) and some oversized marshmallows.
ON YOUR BIKE
If you consider yourselves to be bike people, then pack your supplies and head off along the local bike path to find the perfect spot to spread out.
If you reside in a capital city, chances are a trip to an outdoor cinema is by now high on your to do list as every summer rolls around. a warm summer’s evening under the stars.
To add an extra special something...
USE GREAT QUALITY SERVINGWARE
If there are no kids around, don’t be afraid to break out the fine china and treat yourself to the feeling of eating from something classier than recycled paper plates. Not that there’s ANYTHING wrong with recycled paper plates.
If it’s a calm, breeze-free night, grab some candles for a cosy evening set up or decorate the perimeter of your picnic blanket with solar powered fairy lights.
An acoustic covers playlist sets the scene for a romantic picnic. Depending on your motives, we can also highly recommend a playlist full of “Afternoon Delight” and Ginuwine.
Nothing sets the scene like gorgeous, seasonal blooms. Layer tall and short flowers or group them into single sizes and colours. Old jam jars double as perfect, cost effective vases.
