Out a new lockdown in sight, some rainy or too cold days … a mad desire to organize a picnic (you already know how much we like them!). So why not take the opportunity to organize a picnic at home?
“How do you say? A picnic at home?” you are wondering! Sure! It is a nice idea for a romantic evening different from the usual, to spend a cheerful afternoon with the children and not to feel “trapped” as already happened with the March 2020 Lockdown.
Have I convinced you? Well then I’ll explain how to organize a romantic and cheerful Picnic at home.
Plaid on the floor and it’s immediately a picnic
The real Picnic is done strictly on the ground, even at home! A giant plaid or more blankets is enough to sit as if we were on a lawn.
One more idea to be comfortable? lots of pillows that also create a romantic bohemian atmosphere.
It’s no picnic without a classic wicker basket!
We looked for a lot of them but in the end our choice fell on the beautiful ones of the French companyles jardins de la comtesse.
Our basket, what you see in this photo is this here
Ideal for couples, this elegant basket already includes: ceramic plates, metal cutlery, glass glasses, metal cups, corkscrews, salt and pepper and finally also the waste bag. I can’t wait to use it for the first spring trips too! On the site you will find really many even for 4 or six people.
Ideas in the kitchen
Now let’s move on to food! We are at home and we can really indulge ourselves with the imagination: from finger food recipes, to classic sandwiches.

But you can also conveniently order takeaway from pizza to pub sandwich.
If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace … well turn it on! There is nothing more romantic than a bottle of red to toast, watching the sinuous, romantic and hypnotic movement of fire.
The alternative for those who do not have a fireplace are the lights to be scattered everywhere: on the ground, on the sofa, between pillows. The atmosphere will be truly romantic and dreamy
One more creative idea: a tepee tent! It is not at all difficult to achieve and even I have succeeded alone. It is really a low cost scenographic construction! I just used some recycled wooden sticks, a rope and a sheet. Cute idea for children and as a romantic little retreat to watch a movie!
I show you in this video how I made it in 10 minutes in this video!
