50 ideas for a bling picnic

A good picnic takes serious commitment but it's worth it for the smug factor. Instead of hastily throwing Tortilla chips and a cheap bottle of white into a plastic carrier bag, you get to be that person with the top-of-the-range olives, the artisan bread and the chic matching cutlery. The kind of picnic-goer you loathe on sight but also want to be.

Banish picnic envy forever with our 50 ways to bling up an outdoor gathering, from Swedish ceramics to gourmet popcorn and award-winning lemonade - plus five delicious recipes. That beautifully choreographed vision of picnic perfection is yours in a click; just in time for National Picnic Week (17-23 June).
