International Picnic Day 2022

Get outside for food and fun!

Summer is pretty much here! We’ve had a few gloriously warm days with lots of sunshine, and it makes us want to get out and about, and enjoy the outside world. One great activity for glorious weather is a picnic; it’s an easy thing to put together and you can make a fun day out of it by finding a park to eat in, play some great games with friends and family and put together a simple but delicious meal.

June is usually the time when the weather is finally getting much better, but even if it’s pouring you can still enjoy a picnic! Just grab a blanket and set up on the living room floor. Even when life is no picnic, you can still enjoy the little moments with an affordable meal and activity with your loved one. Also, it’s International Picnic Day on Saturday the 18th June 2022, so there’s no better time to take the opportunity to have a wonderful picnic – you can bring the teddy bears too if you want.

Don’t forget to have something sweet at the ready to finish off your picnic. All of our cakes and brownies are perfect for picnics, but just in case you can’t decide here are a couple of suggestions of which ones we think would go down well:
