Don't forget before you leave
A large picnic blanket and unbreakable dishes! You can, of course, use disposable plates and glasses, but there are also some great bamboo sets available. Sturdy but lightweight, available in a range of colours and suitable for use in the dishwasher. Feel free to bring your large bread board with you, as you can use it to lay out your smaller tasty treats, such as your fruit skewers or tomatoes with mozzarella on a tapas stick. Just like in a restaurant.
A few forks and spoons are all you need for the salad. The rest can be eaten with your fingers, so serviettes are pretty handy. Novelty straws are both a feast for the eyes and are very useful if there are wasps in the area, but hopefully they won’t bother you very much. Oh yes, and for the wine lovers, don’t forget the corkscrew of course. Or be sure to choose a bottle with a screw cap. And finally, with a rubbish bag, sun cream, a kite and a ball, you are ready for the off!
