Time For A Picnic

Time For A Picnic

If you enjoy getting out of the house and eating outdoors then July is the month for you, as the whole of this month is National Picnic Month! There’s something about the summer weather that brings out the relaxed hippy in us all, and what better way to wind down after a busy day/week at work than to slip on your sandals, pack up your picnic basket and head to the outdoors with your nearest and dearest.
 
If you are planning on breaking out the picnic blanket, here are some more unusual ideas that you might find useful in bringing a bit of excitement to the event.
