10 Blankets That Will Help Bring Your Picnic Dreams to Life
Inflatable pillows, water-resistant fabrics AND cute designs?! Yes, please!
Whenever I imagine going on a picnic, I envision sitting on a beautiful mountain top overlooking a gorgeous, deep-blue lake on a sunny, warm day. Of course, all of this depends on my location and the weather but a girl can dream, right? While picnicking has always been a great way to enjoy outdoor dining, it’s never quite as dreamy as you imagine it’s going to be. The main issue is that you’re literally sitting on the ground. Yes, you spread out a blanket but that old, checkered one has little-to-no comfort at all. So, while you’re trying to enjoy a glass of wine, a charcuterie board or fancy little finger sandwiches, the wind is lifting the corners of the blanket and the ground keeps feeling colder and less comfortable. Trust me, you’re never going to get that picturesque mountain-top moment with your current blanket. That’s why you need one of these cute, above-and-beyond versions instead.
A floral-patterned blanket not only captures the very essence of summer but it’s also super practical with its waterproof backing and double-handle feature. Not only will you want to eat off it, but this almost-quilt-like blanket is made out of soft terry cloth — ideal for an afternoon nap in the sun.
Dine in style with a modern take on the picnic blanket. A contemporary backdrop for any IG photo, this blanket's surface won't be damaged by spills, thanks to its water-wicking material! Plus, it zips up into a cute tote with a pocket on the outside so that you can hold your extra utensils. Love the pattern?
