National Picnic Week

This week is National Picnic week. I must admit I do love a good picnic. I love them even more when we take one to a fun place. Last week we packed the car full of food and headed off to the Welsh Mountain Zoo for little ladies 4th birthday. All of the children were very excited. My brother, sister in law and nephew had all come with us to celebrate too so altogether there were 11 of us.




In preparation for National Picnic Week I was sent some fabulous products to help us have an amazing picnic. So what did we receive?

Firstly was this amazing AlpenHome cooler basket from Wayfair.



It truly is a beautiful cooler basket, with its full buff antique wash willow exterior & its fully insulated interior it is sure to keep your food cool on a hot day. The top of it is made from a cream canvas and it has a colour coordinating zip on the top to allow you to put your food in and to seal it closed, preventing any buzzing insects from entering and helping to keep the food cool. Its willow handles are comfortable when carrying it loaded with food. I was nervous about the willow pinching my hands but I needn't have worried.
Its size is 21cm H x 42cm W x 37cm D, now looking at it I thought it looked small but its size is deceptive. My mother in law who prepares all of our delicious picnic food was impressed with how much she was able to fit into the cooler. It was like a magic basket when I was taking out the food, tupperware box after tupperware box emerged from the basket.
I would highly recommend this luxurious basket, it is fairly priced at just £38.74

Wayfair also sent me this matching AlpenHome double lidded picnic hamper that is suitable for four people.


The picnic hamper compliments the cooler basket beautifully, it has the same high standard finish and comes with an insulated compartment. This hamper comes complete with four stainless steel forks, knives and teaspoons, a corkscrew/bottle opener, Salt & pepper shakers, four 7" plates that are held into place with a cream faux leather strap, four wine glasses and four napkins. It is secured with a matching cream faux leather strap with a single handle which again is comfortable on the hands when filled with food.
The size of the hamper is 42cm H x 48cm W x 28cm D. Again the insulated compartment is deceptive and can hold plenty of food. Between the hamper and the cooler basket we had plenty of room for cooled food for 11 people. 
Priced at just £82.30 I highly recommend this picnic hamper

Both of these items complement each other beautifully, I will be the envy of other picnic goers this summer.

Tune in tomorrow for part two of our #nationalpicnicweek fun
