The

Inspiration...

Having grown up in Natal with the luxury of both the bush and beach, picnics were always an ideal way to spend a day out with the family, friends and of course the dogs!  The beauty about picnics is that they can be as simple or as fancy as you want, shared with loved ones or colleagues, both indoors or out.  They can be served out of handmade wicker baskets, or bio-degradable boxes.  They are great for getting people together for games or group sports, for relaxing or reading a book.

A picnic can literally happen anywhere and that’s part of the fun.  Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’re always just a few ingredients away from a picnic.

THE HISTORY

Of Picnics...

When a picnic was being arranged for, the custom originally was that those who wanted to be present, should supply the food and drinks.  A list of those necessities having been drawn up, it was passed round, and each person picked out the article of food or drink that he or she was willing to supply.  The name of the article was nicked, or ticked off the list.  This form of entertainment became known as “pick and nick“.  The custom is said to have dated from 1802…
