You may have heard that the classic tradition of picnicing is having a moment again, rebooted for 2021 as an altogether more luxury picnic. Outdoor get-togethers, having initially become a necessity, are now the activity of choice for re-engaging with friends and family.
Below is our guide for making the most of your summer, whether the occasion is a low-key drink and snacks or a fabulous multi-course dinner party, to help you have a season full of memorable, stylish luxury picnics.
For a whimsical and intimate luxury picnic date, pack all the necessities in a whicker hamper along with Huddleson’s Lovebirds Linen Tablecloth and Lovebirds Napkins to set the mood. Suddenly, even the most simple menu of wine and chips looks like a lesson in charming sophistication!
A garden tea party calls for fresh light colors. The combination of a Celadon Green Table Runner and Ivory Napkins – an elegant turquoise and creamy off-white – is one of our favorites, and it looks wonderful out on the veranda.
This happy table is sure to keep a smile on your face as you enjoy an al fresco cheese board. The Piccadilly Round Polka Dot Tablecloth is perfect for celebrations big and small. Did you notice how the dots form into petals? Always thoughtful design from Huddleson!
Done right, dining outdoors can be better than anything you could put together inside. This dinner on the beach is one such occasion – surrounded by woods and an endless lake view, giving an unforgettable experience. The place settings echo these surroundings: ambers and blues to echo the sunset over the lake and armfuls of fresh white flowers. The napkins are Huddleson’s Seagram print inspired by the paintings of Mark Rothko. Building a wine cooler into your table will ensure that you don’t miss a moment!
A summer Champagne brunch calls for the soft, preppy elegance of Huddleson’s Sky Blue Table Runner and Sky Blue Napkins. It’s a fresh, elegant daytime look and provides the perfect basis for everyone’s favorite blue and white color pairing, allowing you to bring in an artfully mismatched selection of plates and bowls.
On this outdoor lunch table, the rich blue-green tone of the Petrol Green Linen Tablecloth plays beautifully off nature’s shades of green surrounding it. Add in some vibrant red Calla Lillies for a focal burst of color, load up the table with meze and settle in for a memorably chic afternoon in the fresh air.
