Picnics are great. They just are. They’re dynamic, relaxed, fun, delicious… I could go on for years about how fabulous they are (and believe me Susan, I will). Picnics are an age-old tradition that has been enjoyed by people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds for generations. Whether it's a family gathering, a romantic date, or a casual get-together with friends, there's something special about heading somewhere beautiful for a picnic. In this blog, we'll explore why picnics are so great and why they should be a part of your regular routine.
Relaxation and Rejuvenation
Picnics offer an excellent opportunity to relax and recharge. The fresh air, warm sunshine, and peaceful environment can help alleviate stress and anxiety. Spending time outdoors in nature has been shown to boost mental health and mood, which makes a picnic the perfect activity to unwind and rejuvenate.
Connection and Bonding
Picnics are an excellent way to connect with family, friends, and loved ones. From Mother’s Day, to a work picnic, to even a wedding proposal, sharing a meal in a beautiful outdoor setting creates a relaxed, informal atmosphere that promotes conversation and connection. In a world where we are all busy with our work and digital life, picnics offer a chance to disconnect from technology and connect with the people we care about most.
Variety and Adventure
Picnics offer endless possibilities when it comes to the locations and settings. They’re dynamic – you can set a picnic up anywhere in the world from the Eastern Suburbs to the Sutherland Shire to London (we don’t currently provide picnics for London but watch this space!). They’re both a summer and a winter activity. Whether you prefer a serene park or a scenic beach, picnics offer an opportunity to explore new places and discover hidden gems. Picnics are a perfect way to add a little adventure and variety to your daily routine, and with so many beautiful locations, it's easy to find a spot that's perfect for you.
Excellent Food and Drinks
One of the biggest draws of a picnic is the food and drinks. You can pack your favourite snacks, sandwiches, fruits, and beverages that you enjoy, and enjoy them in a scenic location. Whether you prefer a simple cheese and crackers or a gourmet charcuterie board, a picnic offers a chance to indulge in good food and drinks while enjoying the great outdoors. We also offer catering packages so you don’t have to worry about a thing (cos everything is going to be alright, thanks Bob Marley).
Picnics can also provide a platform for fun and games, especially for children. Playing games, reading books, or listening to music are all perfect ways to enjoy the outdoors and bond with your loved ones. You can also paint with friends, watch movies in your own backyard, arrange flowers and learn how to make cocktails thanks to our fantastic add-ons.
