'Live, laugh, and enjoy the sun'
Picnics and the great outdoors go hand in hand — whether it's a casual day in the park, a fancy celebration, or a weekend by the beach — a picnic with your nearest and dearest is always a good idea.
A picnic rug set up can be as simple or as extravagant as you like. Impromptu fish and chips by the water are just as enjoyable as a well thought out picnic style feast.
The ideal picnic includes nothing more than your favourite people, heading to an enjoyable location, an extra large picnic rug to sit on, and packing a trusty picnic basket filled with delicious food and drinks. You can also add on some friendly games to liven the mood!
Something to sit on:
Our Waterproof Picnic Mats have been purposely made to suit any terrain, made from a thick waterproof material, they will make any ground worth spending time on!
A trusty picnic basket:
Pair our picnic rugs with our best selling Bolga Baskets. They are made from the sturdiest fibre on the market — traditional Elephant grass market baskets can withstand the largest of picnic basket hauls and will last you a lifetime.
A delicious picnic menu:
The best picnic foods are quick to make and easily portable to your favourite outdoor spot. Finger foods such as antipasto platters, fruit, crackers and dips, cold sandwiches, fish and chips, and a selection of salads... and don’t forget to pack a chilled drink, or warm thermos to make a warm cup for the cooler months.
