Summer might be almost over but a picnic hamper is an all year luxury and makes such a lovely wedding present?
My husband and I love picnics – at the top of a hill, next to a river, on the beach or even in the garden, we always find an excuse to set up a picnic in a lovely location. They are just super fun, you can take lots of yummy treats and they provide such pretty pictures! In all honesty, I am probably a bit of a sucker for a picnic, as my husband proposed to me with one! Regardless of this though, I think everyone should have a picnic hamper! There are lots of gorgeous events that having a picnic hamper would be useful for – Glyndebourne, Henley Regatta, The Battle Proms and Wimbledon to name but a few. For more information on these, please see *The Sparkle Pearls and Lace Guide to the Season*
Even though the summer season might be over, a picnic basket makes a great wedding present all year round. I am a great believer in autumnal and wintery picnics too complete with hot drinks and a cosy blanket, perfect for the upcoming months. You could even fill the basket with seasonal treats and make it into a gorgeous wedding hamper. The options are endless: jams, teas, pickles, chutneys, chocolates, cheeses, wines etc. Or if you are the happy couple, why not consider adding a picnic basket or hamper to your wedding gift list?
