How to set a gorgeous picnic? It’s not so straightforward in fact. You typically wouldn’t bring your fancy dinner plates, as they might break, and then there’s challenge of getting it all to the park (yes, I’m thinking of all you urbanites whose main means of transport is the bus and tube!).
Skip the random looking picnics this year with their old tupperware and too-loved too-stained blankets. Set a gorgeous picnic with the help of this free DIY picnicscape guide using items from around the house and a couple of handy DIY bits.
Tablecloths & bedcovers as blankets
You may only have one actual picnic blanket in your house and it has probably seen better days, right? Consider using a bedcover or a tablecloth instead! In the above picture, a bedcover is serving as a lovely creamy-pastel coloured picnic backdrop. Scroll further down and see imagery of picnics using tablecloths as an alternative to blankets.
Kitchen towels & placemats as serveware
Avoid any breakage by displaying and wrapping your food in placemats and kitchen towels. In the above picture, a handful of scrumptious looking doughnuts are displayed on FAY&MAMIE's FLÆSER* DIY placemats.

Decorate with napkin rings
A final handy little trick is using some colourful napkins and napkin rings such as these from FAY&MAMIE. A couple of napkin ring are probably the easiest way to quick spruce up that blanket!
