Must-haves for picnics

If you’re planning a picnic, don’t leave home without…

  • Umbrellas/sun shades
  • Plates, cutlery and lots of glasses
  • Can and bottle openers
  • Lots of seasonings, fresh herbs and ice
  • Plenty of rugs and cushions
  • Sun cream
  • Tissues/kitchen roll
  • Rubbish bags
  • Hats for everyone
  • A Frisbee or beach ball for those with energy

And for those who have everything, why not get hold of one of the bespoke wine holders currently being sold at Harrods. Deisgned to stick into any soft ground, the holder keeps the wine out of the way of any stray dogs or children who may have tendencies to knock bottles over.
