Cute Picnicware For Summer

Posted on

The sun is out and that means it’s the perfect time for a picnic. Whether that be a solo lunch under the trees in your local park, with a group watching a sporting event on the big screen, or a big get together, eating outside in summer is the best way to spend a sunny day (minus the wasps!) I have a collection of some cute pieces of picnicware for you to use on your next outing.

strawberry picnic basket

Strawberry themed items are everywhere this spring/summer and in the UK they certainly spell the start of the picnic season. Flying Tiger (global) have a whole range, but this picnic basket is very cute and you could fill them with these little snack pots for sharing food in.

strawberry picnic blanket

You could also grab a strawberry picnic blanket too like this one from Sophie Allport (UK), which also comes in a number of different designs, like bees and lobsters.

If you’d prefer a wilder theme, then these safari-themed melamine tumblers and bamboo picnic bowls by Yvonne Ellen at Chalk Interiors (UK) are covered in different animals in a colourful but modern elegant style.

kawaii insulated lunch bag

These Kiki’s Delivery Service insulated bags are perfect for transporting items while keeping them cool. The official Ghibli store Donguri Kyowakoku (JP – requires forwarding service) is the perfect spot to grab these but Maison Ghibli (EU) also carries some current and past items for Europe too.

mini pastel cooler box

If you’re looking for a proper cooler for drinks etc. then I love this mini cooler from 3COINS (JP – requires forwarding service) and they come in a variety of colours.

If you have need for a bigger one, then I love these retro looking pastel coolers from Polarbox at John Lewis (UK).

japanese bento boxes

Now you have all your picnic accessories, you need to pack up your food into boxes, so why not use some cute bento boxes to do so? I spent the entire sakura season having solo picnics so I was immediately drawn to this bento box from Bento&co (JP) which comes with matching chopsticks in a case, or a full cutlery set.

cat bento box

JapanCentre (UK) also has a lovely selection of lunch/bento boxes and this black cat one comes complete with matching chopstick set too.

Now I’m a huge Baymax fan and I couldn’t pass up the huge selection from ShopDisney Japan (JP – requires forwarding service). There’s an insulated cooler bag, stacked bento box, onigiri box, and cutlery set that all match, plus so many others.
