Perfect Picnics

Whether you’re packing some bubbly for an evening of outdoor cinema or just want to kick back on the picnic rug under blue skies, this month is all about the outdoor feast...

Deli delights
Need a quick picnic dash? In Earlsfield, The Deli Project is newly opened and has great salads, cakes and sandwiches to take away. Or Carluccio’s delis have a wide range of charcuterie and salads to take away.

High street hero
M&S has launched another great range of picnic treats. The handcrafted ploughmnan’s pork pie with red Leicester (above) is a superb family pick and there’s heaps of miniatures and limited edition sarnies to stack in your hamper.

Delicious deliveries
For a hassle-free picnic party get your delicious nibbles delivered to the door. The organic monthly cheese club board from Abel & Cole is our favourite at £14. Or grab everything you’ll need for sensational salads with the Super Salad Recipe Box at £15.

Strawberry season
Grab a tin of seriously addictive strawberries and cream shortbread from Cartwright and Butler. Perfect for Wimbledon!

Hamper happiness
This four-person VonShef hamper (£34.99) is just the ticket for a leisurely day out on the common and has room for all your nibbles and bubbles.

Guests at The Ivy Café, Wimbledon, will be able to enjoy a limited-edition tennis ball inspired version of the chocolate bombe during the Championships. The restaurant will have a beautiful window installation to celebrate Wimbledon from 15 June – and most of the village’s businesses will also be vying for the best window displays so why not check them out post dessert.
