Excited for picnic season? We are too!
As lockdown restrictions slowly ease up, meeting up with your girl gang will soon become a reality. From 29th March, outdoor gatherings of up to six people or two households will be officially allowed in England meaning parties in the park are closer than you think! If you’re still at home for now or shielding, use this as some ultimate inspo! You’ll get your picnics soon, fingers crossed!
If you need some picnic ideas to inspire your post-lockdown picnic, we’ve got you covered. Nothing says reunited like a few glasses of fizz, some delicious snacks and scenic views. Besides, picnic dates with your girls is always a vibe (and they’re pandemic approved).
It doesn’t really get much better than munching on your favourite snacks with your besties and soaking up all that Vitamin D now, let’s be honest. Discover our picnic date ideas for you and your girl gang below.
Picnic Ideas and inspiration
1. Have a photoshoot
If you haven’t seen your besties in a while (similar to us all), your camera roll is probably looking a bit dried up. This is the perfect time to create more memories and cherish your girl gang. As some picnic inspiration, get a polaroid camera and take a bunch of sweet pics that will have you remembering this day for years to come. Having the photos in hand will make you cherish them even more - you can even stick them on your wall as a heartfelt feature.
2. Wine Tasting
It’s never too early for a glass...or two.
As an easy picnic idea to really get the day going, get a few glasses of wine (some cheese and crackers also makes a killer combo) and do some wine tasting with your girls. The sun will be shining, you’ll have your music blasting and all the snacks will be on the go. Sounds like the perfect day, to be honest.
3. Go on a bike ride
As a picnic activity, why not take a bike ride around your local park beforehand? We all went through that phase of scavenging through store after store for a bike during lockdown so it’s probably time you pulled it out of the shed. Then, once you’ve got your miles in, you can wind down with some incredible snacks and maybe even a G&T in hand.
4. Paint and sip
And by paint and sip, we mean exactly that.
Gather some watercolour paints and a few bottles of your favourite wine and get your craft on! Now is the time to get creative with your girls so don’t forget your paint brushes or your canvas! This is a simple picnic idea that will have you unleashing your creativity and giggling with your girl gang all day long!
5. Play Games
You’re never too old for a good old card game. Besides, if you’re the competitive type, you’ll want in on all the action. If you’re a lover of card games, Cards Against Humanity or What Do You Meme are always a good laugh and really set the tone. Or, if you prefer something classic, go for a game of charades. It’s always a winner.
