We have most definitely perfected the art of the perfect picnic. Here are the very easy steps:
Step one: Pick a lovely place: A good park, a sunny day, a few rose bushes nearby if you can find them. Wimbledon Park works for us.
Step Two: Pack a picnic blanket. If you would like to be extra awesome, make sure your shoes coincidentally match the picnic blanket.
Step Three: Get an awesome picnic bag. Preferably with a wine-cooler section. Pack your wine.
Step Four: Pack your portable music blaster.
Step Five: Get real glass wine glasses, because "chinking" is always necessary. And you will always find many reasons to chink once you are sitting down at your perfect picnic.
Step Six: Organise the grub. I opt for healthy pre-cut veggies with tzatziki and spicy hummus. Cut all the veggies before hand and put them in containers. Pack a few plates.
Step Seven: Pack a knife just in case. Pack a tennis ball if you feel like it.
Step Eight: Invite a few birds, invite a few squirrels too if they are lurking about.
Step Nine: Pour your wine, Put on your tunes, Smash your delish food and chink away.
