Picnic plans? Up your al fresco game with this stylish outdoor collection

Promotional feature with Sainsbury's Home

Because summer is all about being outdoors and enjoying delicious picnics with friends…

The warm weekends and long summer evenings are finally here, and you know that means. It’s officially time to pencil in some picnics.

Ice-cold drinks, fabulous dips and salads, the ultimate summer playlist –all of these elements make for the perfect outdoors gathering, and we’ve found a range that’ll guarantee your picnic will be the most Instagrammed bash of the season.

Inspired by the familiar seaside scenes of the British Isles, the new Shore outdoors collection from Sainsbury’s Home is what picnic dreams are made of, offering up a sophisticated set of outdoor accessories, picnicware and other essentials that are both practical and stylish.

Heading to the beach? Take your theme coastal with bold nautical stripes in bright reds and tonal blues, adorning everything from dinner plates to a handy cooler tote (no more warm fizz, hooray). Other fun accents include cute boat motifs and non-spill drinks bottles, complete with adorably retro striped straws.

So where’s your dream picnic spot going to be? Whether you head off to the coast on the train or cycle into the countryside, these pieces are light and easy to carry. All that’s left for you to do is fix some signature snacks, chill the drinks, and make doubly sure you packed your Hadid-worthy shades before heading out…

MC_Resized_Multi Stripe GBP 2.00

Coordinating your outdoor tableware will give your picnic a professional party-planner finish, especially when the pieces are as fab as this multi-striped range, plate £2. Guaranteed to make even a simple cheese sandwich look 50 shades of chic.

Bottle With Straw Assorted GBP 3.50

Summer is made for fruity drinks, and we can’t imagine things get any cuter than these retro-style drinks bottles, £3.50. From thirst-quenching iced teas to pre-made power smoothies, hands up who wants one!

MC_Resized_Picnic Rug Stripe GBP 8.00

Because a picnic wouldn’t be a picnic without a brightly coloured rug, we’re loving how this rug, £8, from the Shore outdoor range is super practical without losing any style points. Plus, the handy tie means it’s easy to transport.
