The Sunday was reserved for my boyfriend and I to hike up to the local park and have a picnic and spend some time together. I wanted to make the picnic special and memorable, so I needed to make it look impressive.
I hit Marks and Spencer's for some posh picnic food, a sliced chorizo selection, sweet and sticky prawns, olives and anti-pasti, salmon and prawn terrine, a lovely loaf of cheese topped bread and a little bit of brie. I returned home to prepare the food and decided to display the meat, prawns and cheese on a wooden chopping board, decant the olives into a mini jar and put the salad into 2 kilner style jars to make it all look pretty.
We loaded it all up into some cool bags and strolled up to the park where I insisted that my boyfriend didn't look as I displayed the spread onto my new picnic blanket, he was very impressed with the effort I had put into the food and couldn't wait to get stuck in.
It was an amazing afternoon and we enjoyed a little bit of music and a bottle of rose whilst laying in the sun stuffing our faces with yummy things! It's funny how something so simple can be turned into something special and amazing with a little effort to make it look pretty.
