Spring as arrived and summer is on its way- this means that it’s time to shake out those picnic plackets and dig out the picnic baskets from the back of our cupboards and get outdoors. Picnics are a great way to spend time with family and friends or even to get a bit of solitude. A picnic might even the perfect setting for something a little more romantic…
When the sun is shining, you know that it’s time to get outside and enjoy it while it lasts. Take a walk up a mountain with some friends and find a spot with view, open the champagne and just celebrate the sunshine. If you spend too much time around people then you might want to enjoy a picnic on your own and just be alone with your thoughts and take in nature and all its beauty.
With everyone having busy schedules, it is sometime difficult to stay in touch with family. A picnic is a wonderful excuse to get together and have a well-needed catch up. Choose a forest or a park and get everyone to bring something different – grown-ups can sit back and relax while the child run around and enjoy the fresh spring air.
Botanical gardens are also such lovely venues for picnics. With so much natural beauty around you, as well as an opportunity to walk around, you are guaranteed to feel fresh and energized. This is a great way to spend a birthday or it’s even a special spot to have an engagement party.
Celestial Gif Experiences has a wonderful selection of picnic experiences to choose from. The Beach Picnic, Horse Riding and Picnic and the Horseback Safari and Picnic are great activities to do with a close friend or family member.
If you have someone special in your life and the time has come to ‘pop the big question’ you might want to consider throwing a surprise sunset picnic for your other half. Get champagne, strawberries, cheese and crackers and put together a picnic basket filled with all their favourite snacks. Choose a venue that gives you some privacy and a view – as the sun sets (and the romantic mood hits) you will have the perfect moment to ask that very special question.
Celestial Gift Experiences has some truly romantic picnics available from an Exclusive Boudoir Picnic or an ‘Adam and Eve’ Picnic to a Gourmet Picnic or a Wine Estate Picnic – there is even a Magical Picnic, which includes soft blackest, scatter cushions and even rose petals, creating an experience that you and your partner will remember forever.

Whether you want to catch up with some long lost friends or reunite with some close family member or even create a beautiful romantic outing, a picnic is the perfect setting to do all of these things. Being outside and enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air truly is an energising experience, no matter who you are with.
