Whisk your beloved away on a picturesque picnic with verdant vistas and elegant eats.

You don’t have to have a beautiful view for a romantic picnic, but it helps. Depending on where you live, there are plenty of options for venues with bags of charm to put you both in a starry-eyed mood. If three’s a crowd in romance, busy tourist spots may not be the best place. Also consider the weather and, particularly, the wind. If your chosen spot is on a hillside, think about the wind direction and shelter. If it’s been raining recently, choose somewhere that won’t be horribly boggy – a soggy bottom is an unappealing on a picnic as it is on cakes!
For a truly dreamy picnic, you need to consider the set-up – no dusty, dog-eared blankets from the boot of your car allowed! A stylish picnic rug is the first necessity. An elegant hamper is a close second, and many of these come ready stocked with their own charming napkins, crockery and cutlery. If you’re going to be dining where at a table, bring a tablecloth instead.
While they’re full of fun and adventure, picnics aren’t always the most comfortable of enterprises, which is bad news for would-be Romeos. So why not invest in some folding travel chairs which will stop aching joints from ruining the romance?
