    Bring comfortable blankets or picnic rugs for seating. You can also consider folding chairs if you prefer.

    Add cushions or pillows for extra comfort and style.

  7. Bring Entertainment:
    Plan games or activities to keep everyone entertained, such as frisbee, cards, a soccer ball, or a good book for solo relaxation.

    Use reusable or biodegradable picnicware to minimise waste.

  9. Timing is Key:
    Plan your picnic for a time that suits you and your guests, whether it's a leisurely brunch, afternoon snack, or a sunset dinner.

  10. Share the Load:
    Encourage your guests to contribute by bringing a dish or beverage to share. It can make the picnic more diverse and enjoyable.
