Choose a great location, it doesn’t have to be somewhere far away, it could be your favourite lookout, even your backyard or take a short drive to the country, the beach or a day out at the races.

What to take

You will need a good sized picnic basket and cooler bag.  Add colour with some gorgeous napkins and a picnic rug or two, large enough to fit your picnic setting and comfortable enough to sit on.  Most picnic sets will contain all the cutlery, plates and cups you need.
