The edit | Summer picnics


Summer beach picnic with minimalist style | These Four Walls blog

Today I’m launching my monthly ‘edit’ – a new series of posts sharing a curated selection of items to help you make the most of simple, relaxed moments at home and beyond. I’m planning to cover everything from lazy Sunday mornings to seasonal entertaining, and I’m starting with summer picnics.

There’s something magical about dining in the open air, surrounded by nature – whether it be at your local park, in the countryside or (my favourite) on the beach. And it needn’t be complicated, especially if you have a collection of functional, beautiful items that you can grab and go whenever the weather allows. So, here’s my pick of considered buys to make your picnics look and feel that little bit more special. There are cool bags and baskets, portable lamps, blankets and cushions, reusable food containers, hard-to-break tableware and much more, all with the kind of understated, timeless style that means you’ll use them year after year. Just add some crusty bread, cheeses, a zingy salad and a bottle of wine and voilà – the perfect summer picnic awaits…
