There is something so lovely about having a picnic: The sun shining down, all the food, spending time with friends. I think we could all do with giving ourselves more time to escape to the country for an hour or two, and what better reason than to have a picnic?
In my eyes picnics are so underrated, although admittedly dependent on the weather, they’re so simple to organise that you could easily arrange one of an afternoon. As a student, I’m always thinking of things to do which are affordable, and this most definitely is! Everyone can provide some food, and before you know it you’ve got a tasty feast.
When organising a picnic, I prefer to have it somewhere quieter that also allows you to go for a leisurely stroll afterward, so a nice location is key. But I also have invited friends round to have one in my garden, they can be as simple as you make them.
A friend and I set up our picnic blanket in the afternoon sunshine in a quiet field (would recommend not having it on someones private land, which we unknowingly did…oops!) and had a lovely catch up and giggle, whilst of course munching on all the lovely food.
As you can see, our picnic for two was virtually effortless and was done only using foods that we had available. We had fruit kebabs, my homemade caramel brownie protein balls , Go Ahead chocolate crunchy dippers (which tasted amazing), and some refreshing summer fruits squash.
Once we had eaten as much as we could, we then went for a walk along the Wey & Arun canal in West Sussex, which was absolutely beautiful.
I felt so peaceful after doing so, and I hope I’ve inspired you to get outside and see the beauty that is all around us,
