Setting Your Perfect Picnic

Setting Your Perfect Picnic

Let’s take advantage of this season, get outside, and gather with your friends and family outdoors— something we can only do for so long here in Canada. 

Picnics are universally adored. If your menu requires you to stay close to home, a picnic in your backyard can be charming. Alternatively, if you can travel, try a new setting like a rocky beach, a park out of your neighbourhood, or a mountainside if you are feeling bold.  Whether you’re looking for a change of scenery or simply searching for a mini-adventure, set your picnic table with intention and enjoy the moment outdoors with even better company. 

Step up your picnic game by introducing some new luxury items, elevating your food choices, and ennoble your display to match your cherished guests. We have curated a list of dishes and decor to help your picnic be photo-worthy and memorable for years to come.  Let’s bring the party out of the kitchen! 


First things first, you need a base for your picnic. Grab a new blanket from a local company that will be soft, comfy and stylish. If you are hosting a traditional picnic, the Tofino Towel Co. has gorgeous beach blankets that would be the perfect start to your picnic. Or if you are hosting your dinner at a table, choose a tablecloth to make the outdoors elegant.

Looking for a conversation-starting centrepiece that is still portable and functional on a picnic? Why not grab an eye-catching tray and fill it with an assortment of candles. We love that these trays from Briers are made from all-natural seagrass.

Put together your famous charcuterie board on our Party Plate or serve the fresh bread you learned how to make this past year. Use our brand new Ramekin Bowls for the accompanying dips or store-bought salsa for your chips if you are keeping things simple. 

Bring one or a few of our Family Serving Bowls for everything else. These could be used for serving an entree such as pasta, a salad appetizer, popcorn to snack on, or those aforementioned tortilla chips. 


Create your favourite cocktail in Lineage’s new 12oz Tumblers. These are simple, minimalistic and beautiful. Durable for use outdoors while still maintaining your aesthetic. 

Don’t forget to relax and enjoy yourself! One of the greatest aspects of an outdoor gathering is that once you get to your location there is not a lot of work to be done. All the prep work is done ahead of time and all the washing up needs to wait until you get back home. Sit back and take in the view of this beautiful country we live in.
