Now that summer has rolled around again, it’s time to go out and make the most of the weather. After all, who doesn’t love to spend the day outdoors? Because it can get a bit too hot at home, your best option is to kick back and relax in the shade. At the same time, it’s perfectly natural to want to bring some cute and comfy accessories with you on your day out. Whether it’s for a birthday party or just a catch-up with friends, a picnic in the park offers you the perfect break from hectic everyday life.
We’ve found a nice spot by the water and put together a few pieces to create a nice, relaxing atmosphere. Be sure to read on if you’ve been looking for a few simple DIY projects.
To make your picnic a visual (and not just a culinary) delight, you can combine different cushions and blankets with different textures and patterns – we recommend a bright and colourful Mexican style, Nordic chic in natural colours or a pastel dreamworld, like the accessories in these pictures. Go for whatever your heart desires :)
We have sewn some glass bottle covers that match these calming colours. Take a look at our instructions for ‘How to sew a fabric vase’ if you’d like to craft some at home.
A picnic just wouldn’t be the same without a few summery accessories. Wicker baskets and embroidered sun hats are must-haves this summer. You can create a gorgeous piece in raffia yarn in no time at all – there are no limits to your creativity! We have embroidered our hat with the word ‘Aloha’. take a look at our easy diy instruction!
There’s nothing better than lying on the grass and watching the clouds float by. This experience is even better when you have something comfy to sit on. This stylish picnic mat will make sure that nothing comes between you and your daydreams. Next week, we’ll show you how you can simply sew a piece like this at home.
Placemats made from fabric look especially pretty, not just on a table laid for special occasions, but also on this rustic wooden palette. They look particularly cute tied with a satin ribbon.
Your friends are sure to swoon over these tasty treats. Small fruit skewers make for delicious and refreshing snacks. Simply cut your fruit into smaller chunks, put it on wooden skewers and voilà! Your fruit salad lolly is ready to go. If you happen to have any cookie cutters laying about, you can use them to cut pieces of melon and other fruit into stars or hearts.
We hope that you enjoyed our day out and that our summery ideas have inspired you!
