It’s official. British summer is here! I have endless childhood memories of long summers spent in Devon with my family. We would pack a cooler with salad from the garden, egg sandwiches using the eggs from our chickens and any leftover cake from my latest baking concoction. We would pile into the car with our wet suits and body boards towards the North Devon Coast for a day in the surf.
Alternatively, myself and my siblings would gather various dishes of food, wrap them up in a blanket and perch ourselves at the edge of the lake, smothered in suncream and leap into the cool water whenever we got too hot.
Summer, to me, is not complete without a picnic, something that Perrier understands too. To celebrate the relaunch of the iconic sparkling water brand, Perrier are hosting The Perrier Pique-Nique; a mid-summer evening of musicians and performers for you to enjoy with your very own bespoke picnic hamper containing goodies by Rebel Bakery, The Meringue Girls and of course cocktails made using Perrier sparkling water. They are hailing it as an evening fantastique and I have a set of tickets to giveaway to the evening including your very own picnic hamper!
All you need to do to enter is head on over to my Instagram and comment on my latest snap and you’ll automatically be entered! The Perrier Pique-Nique is happening on Wednesday 21st June from 6pm until 11pm in Shoreditch.
With a couple of books, fresh food and a cocktail each, it was the perfect afternoon spent lounging around like lizards baking in the sunshine.
Fingers crossed this beautiful weather sticks around for many more picnics in the sunshine. If it does, I’ve included a few picnic non-essentials below that will help you throw the most swoonworthy picnic this summer.
