Summer Loving: Perfect Picnics

I simply adore picnics, it doesn't matter whether you're on a mini stretch of desserted beach or in the hustle & bustle of a busy Park, it's company, the weather, music, games and food that makes a perfect lazy summer afternoon. I still haven't found the perfect patch of grass to have a gathering here, but I can only swoon at some of these images here for now.

What kind of picnic are you going for? Matchbook Magazine (which I just cannot get enough of by the way) has all the info you'll need!
Nothing makes a picnic more perfect than good food, I'm a total foodie so the more the better, but it has to be a darn good mix of things, from sweet to savoury, know what I mean? Depending on what kind of picnic you're hosting, make sure you've packed the right kinds of food and drink - humble food or luxe picnic style?

I've included this because i'm nutso about figs!

"These little bundles of salad don't need dressing so they won't go soggy on the journey. They are good for keeping hunger pangs at bay while the rest of the picnic is being unpacked.
Makes 8
  • 2 figs, quartered
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • A bunch of wild rocket (or a bagful)
Take a fig quarter and a few leaves of rocket and wrap them up (like a bunch of flowers) in a piece of prosciutto. Repeat with the rest of the figs."
