As lockdown restrictions ease Brits share their posh picnics

The rise of the VERY posh picnic! Social media users share snaps of lavish spreads complete with Champagne, charcuterie boards and fresh flowers (and there’s not a soggy sandwich in sight)

  • The traditional picnic has been given a glamorous makeover on social media amidst sunnier spring weather
  • Lavish trend includes bringing entire cakes to picnics as well as bottles of champagne and fresh fruits
  • Soggy sandwiches have been replaced with charcuterie boards, gourmet cheese,olives and macaroons 

With sunnier spring weather and eased lockdown restrictions meaning more time is being spent outdoors the humble picnic has been given a glamorous makeover. 

Brits have joined users from across the world in taking to Instagram to show off their very lavish outdoor set-ups in the new trend of ‘posh picnics’ which are a far cry from the traditional plastic plates, soggy sandwiches and Scotch eggs.  

The trend involves swapping your old picnic rug for a stylish blanket and bringing with you full crockery, cutlery, glasswear, and sometimes even a champagne bucket. 

Insta-savvy users have been adding further elegance to their set-ups by including dried flowers, cushions, baskets, candles and fashionable napkin sets. 

Popular food includes charcuterie boards, fresh bread, cheese, fruit and olives – followed by macaroons, pastries and in some lavish cases entire cakes.
