How to create an iso-friendly picnic at home

As Melbourne, Victoria, comes into it's 6th week of stage 4 lockdown it's time to get creative and it's time for an iso-friendly picnic at home. With all your favourite cafes, bars and restaurants currently not an option, why not jazz up your living room or garden for your next special occasion (day's ending in y can definitely be a valid excuse to get fancy).




You will need:

  • Picnic blankets

  • Cushions

  • Plates

  • Cutlery

  • Glasses

  • Napkins

  • Chopping boards

  • Food & Drink


Step 1 - Hunter gatherer.


Grab your finest china, cutlery and glassware, the least used the better for that extra special treat. If it's matching, even better!

Look for any napkins or serviettes you have in that draw of random stuff. Cloth napkins are extra boujee but at least try to avoid the Christmas patterns.

Hunt for a picnic blanket or rug to use. If you don't have a picnic blanket to hand, maybe you have a bed sheet that you don't mind getting dirty.



Lastly gather any throw cushions you own to make the picnic more comfortable and more pretty.
