When summer starts to come to an end, it doesn’t mean we have to abandon our alfresco pursuits. Autumn is a fabulous time to be planning picnics.
There is so much wonderful harvest produce to celebrate, the weather is starting to cool, and of course, there’s the splendid natural display of colour to enjoy. All great reasons for us to put together some fabulous fall picnic ideas.
Your fall picnic fancy might be tailgating, a potluck holiday celebration with family and friends, a leaf-peeping hiking picnic, or, a relaxed and civil affair on a rug in the great outdoors.
Whatever your style, our aim is always to make picnicking simple, relaxed, and most of all, enjoyable to encourage you to go alfresco more often.
Stadium cushions are a perfect picnic companion for those who like to be comfortable. Throw them on your picnic blanket for extra support or cushioning, put them on a picnic bench to keep comfy and warm, or even plonk them on top of the cooler for an impromptu seat. Lightweight, with thick foam and waterproof backing, this portable cushion is perfect for cool weather picnics.
Want more comfort than just an extra cushion? I love these incredibly lightweight yet sturdy portable chairs.
They fold down to a tiny 14.25″ x 5.25″ including the carry bag, weigh only 2 lbs and can hold weights of up to 350 lbs. Extremely easy to carry for picnics where you may have a little trek in front of you or for a very portable park picnic.
These chairs are an incredibly sturdy and lightweight solution for outdoor picnics and a great picnic alternative to those who don’t feel comfortable sitting on a blanket.
If you’re anything like me, you like a nice glass for your wine even at a picnic. While glass is rarely a suitable option, these quality insulated tumblers are an excellent alternative.
Lightweight and sturdy, these tumblers will keep drinks cool for up to 9 hours (or hot for 3 hours). They also have a secure lid to keep the temperature in and contaminants out and prevent spills.
While I like these as a wine glass alternative, they also double up for hot drinks such as tea and coffee which makes them picnic versatile.
For another versatile, and stylish picnic drink accessory perfect for all picnics, team your wine tumblers with this beautiful triple-layered, vacuum insulated S’well Teakwood 25oz stainless steel thermos flask.
Keep beverages cold for up to 54 hours or hot for up to 26 hours. These thermos flasks will hold an entire bottle of wine, the opening is wide enough to fit most ice cubes and of course is perfect for any hot beverage.
I love this teak finish for a fall picnic but they are available in a huge range of colours and designs.
