Celebrating #nationalpicnicweek with Wayfair

are now officially in National Picnic Week (13th to 21st
of June) so quickly dust off your picnic blankets, dig out your trusty cool box
and stop off at the supermarket for your bread, sandwich fillers and other
essential supplies (does cake and wine qualify?)! I
was kindly offered a few items from Wayfair
to host my own picnic.

Thank you #wayfairuk for the #nationalpicnicweek supplies for my romantic picnic with hubbie x

Seeing as hubbie
and I rarely have quality time with just the two of us I decided on a romantic
picnic theme. So I picked out some
gorgeous wine glasses, some delightful cushions (which the boys have now
claimed for themselves!), a lantern (so we could look at each other adoringly
by candle light!) and an attractive wicker picnic basket to contain our edible

made all the difference to our picnic, I felt very relaxed. We picked out an idyllic setting, made the
most of the peace and quiet (okay there may have been some noisy sheep but
compared to our kids that’s still calm enough!). We sipped on wine and giggled in each other’s company. Our tensions slipped away and we remembered
why we were drawn to each other in the very beginning! It’s so important to carve out that precious
time as a couple otherwise your just two people entirely focused looking after your children.

think everyone should squeeze in at least one picnic this week, you can find
recipes over on the National
Picnic Week website if you need a little help in that department but in
terms of lovely picnic accessories Wayfair has everything you could possibly
need and more. Hopefully we can have a
family picnic (exchanging the wine for ginger beer perhaps so we can feel very
Enid Blyton!) before the week ends. The
boys love picnics just as much as us, especially when they were smaller, we
were always having indoor picnics if it was raining joined by an assortment of
soft toys. We keep our food choices
simple fruit, sandwiches, boiled eggs (a new favourite) and some cake, nothing
that takes a lot of preparation because usually we want to head out as fast as
possible and start wearing the boys out!
