7 Picnic Ideas to Try This Summer.
Many of us live in small apartments or homes that aren't ideal for hosting parties. So why not take advantage of the warm weather and find a local outdoor space to host a picnic party. Invite your friends and family to join or go solo and soak up some vitamin D. We've made it easy for you with some great menu and style ideas to make your picnic a stress-free, relaxed event.
The Breakfast Picnic
- Pastries, Bread, and Bagels
- Butter, Jam, Cheese, and Smoked Salmon
- Fruit and Yogurt
Irish mornings are cool so dressing in layers is a great idea for a breakfast picnic. Our Ella cashmere is perfect for wrapping around your shoulders when the sun warms things up a bit. A simple slide is easy to take off so you can enjoy the grass between your toes.
The Dinner Picnic
- Crackers or Bread
- Fruit, Nuts, Jams, Olives
- Dips and Spreads

We love our Alex pleated skirt and Helena wrap cashmere top for a dinner party. It's comfortable enough for you to relax but elegant enough for the most formal outdoor soiree.
The Date Picnic
- Whiskey Sour
- Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Roquefort, Brie or Cheddar Cheese
- French Bread
- Dried Fruit and Nuts
- Finger Sandwiches
Casual dressing is perfect for a picnic date. Wearing jeans means no fear of a wind swept Marilyn Monroe moment. Our Faye skinnies are our top choice.
The Parisian Picnic
- Dessert Madeleines (a great madeleine recipe if you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen)
There is nothing more perfect than a Breton top for a french picnic. This iconic top was originally designed for French navy seamen so they could be spotted if they fell overboard. Now, it is a classic fashion statement that will never go out of style.
The Solo Picnic
- A slice of quiche
- Fruit and nuts
- A salad
- Fruit flavoured water
- A brownie for dessert
When you are on your own it's all about comfort. We love our Lillian crew tee as a simple wardrobe staple that you can dress up or dress down. Bring a blanket and even a pillow to cosy up with. This picnic is all about you so there are no rules other than making yourself happy.
