This week is National Picnic week so grab your blankets and baskets out of the cupboards and get out to the great outdoors for a good old fashioned picnic.
What better way to spend a lazy summers afternoon than in a lovely location with the family, playing games and tucking in to a picnic. National picnic week celebrates all those memories and images of blue skies, green grass, blankets and hampers of food.
Although the concept of the picnic originated in France, the British have very much taken it to their hearts. It is reckoned the average person in the UK goes on 3 picnics a year, enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air it brings. An inexpensive day out, a picnic provides the chance for quality family time playing traditional games such as rounders or just relaxing with a good book and some music.
And for chilly days our Hettie hats and scarves are perfect !
