Top tips to picnic in style
1. Set up a makeshift tent with a sheet or boho bedspread and a battery-operated garland of fairy lights
2. Throw around a generous spread of cushions for maximum snuggle value
3. Fill a basket with cosy rugs so you can stay out all night
4. Tuck in some candles with jars for wind protection
Glamp it up
Elevate your picnic with a trestle table dressed to impress - keep it bohemian by adding a lush floral tablecloth, a mixed bag of cushioned garden chairs and round up a collection of lanterns to dot around the lawn* or string fairy lights from surrounding trees.
*be mindful of the very real fire risk for clothing passing over and around open flames
