Celebrate the Picnic Season

Celebrate the Picnic Season

There is something about the pairing of good old British summer time and a picnic spread full of appetising snacks. It evokes nostalgic memories of happy times spent as a family, making our way through a variety of our favourite nibbles in between laughter, chatter and prancing through the grass. There is also the romantic picnic – a way for two people to spend some intimate time together.

The main beauty of piecing together your perfect garden must surely come in the form of being able to enjoy it, and what better way than to gather your nearest and dearest whilst you host your very own perfect picnic? You don't always need the local park or an outing to the countryside in order to enjoy the finer offerings of summertime.

Fortunately, when it comes to entertaining family and friends to a picnic in style and comfort, Barbed has it covered. Below we take a look at some of the garden benches and blankets we have available to ensure you're prepared to host with both the wow factor and the cucumber sandwiches. 

Bellevie Table and Bench

Designed by creative Frenchmen Patrick Pagnon and Claude Pelhaître the Bellevie table and bench from Fermob's Bellevie range  can add a real fashion statement to any garden. They should ensure thatlaying out a spread for the entire family will be a pleasurable experience summer after summer. The bench is available with or without the backrest, which allows you to choose the most comfortable solution for you. Furthermore, a selection of 24 designer colours allow the garden furniture to either seamlessly blend in with its surroundings or pop with a touch of bold colour.

Luxembourg Table and Bench

Luxembourg tableIf you prefer a more classical French design, then the Luxembourg table and bench is likely to ooze the elegance you're searching for. Capable of accommodating friends and family with comfort and sophistication, this design is made from aluminium and is treated with high protection coating, so it requires minimal maintenance and can be enjoyed outside during these long, warm summer evenings. The coating also allows Fermob’s furniture to remain resilient against the testing weather that other seasons bring. Another great positive is that these charming items can be complemented with others from the Luxembourg collection, such as the Luxembourg Armchair and Luxembourg Low Table.

Envie D'Ailleurs Pasteque Blanket

We would never forget to supply a choice of blankets for the garden as this is where the children are likely to have the most fun, along with the majority of us adults if we're all honest! Made from 100% cotton, the Envie D'Ailleurs Pasteque blanket is just one of the beautifully crafted designs we have available here at Barbed and can prove to be a superb way for you all to spend quality time together. Along with some of the Envie D'Ailleurs cushions scattered across the lawn, this could prove to be the most comfortable picnic to date!

These are just a few of the items we have available to help you think about making the most of the summer in your very own outdoor space. If you're looking to add simple, modern furniture and accessories to your garden, or something with a little more razzmatazz then be sure to shop our collections online or call into our showrooms in Barnes or Chiswick.  We can't wait to help you host that perfect picnic!
