The Glades
Picnics & Pals

The sun is finally shining, and what better way to mark the occasion than rounding up your pals and enjoying a picnic in one of Bromley’s stunning parks?

Picture this: a sun-soaked afternoon, a cool breeze rustling through the trees, and the sound of laughter as you and your BFFs enjoy the ultimate picnic. A perfect picnic in the park is the essence of summer vibes, and with a little help from our retailers, your day can be as effortlessly stylish and seamless as you’ve always dreamed.

Not sure where to go for the perfect picnic? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. CLICK HERE for our top spots in Bromley for a lazy afternoon in the sun.

Fashionably Fabulous

First things first, let’s talk fashion. The key to a perfect picnic outfit is finding the balance between comfort and style – something cute that allows plenty of movement for eating, playing and soaking up the sun! We love this season’s gingham trend, taking inspo from the picnic blanket itself, whether that’s a checked dress, wide leg trousers or pretty cami top.

If casual is more your thing, then an oversized linen shirt thrown over a simple tee and denim cut offs is always a winner!  And don’t forget to accessorise! A pair of oversized sunglasses will keep you looking effortlessly cool in the heat.

Picnic Essentials

Once you’re dressed to impress, it’s time to gather your picnic essentials. Choose a stylish and practical picnic blanket big enough for a spot of sunbathing (and all the delicious food, of course!). Add a traditional wicker picnic basket that’s perfect for carrying all your goodies, and pick up some fun and colourful plates, bowels and cups for all those tasty treats. M&S and Oliver Bonas have a huge selection to choose from to ensure your setup is Instagram-worthy!

Beauty and Self-Care

Stay picnic-ready with suncare essentials like sunscreen to protect your skin from the rays and a stylish reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. For a refreshing pick-me-up, eco-friendly sprays will keep you feeling fresh all day long. Boots have a wide selection of suncare products to choose from in store.

When it comes to days out in the sun, low maintenance make up looks are a must! A quick sweep of colour with Kiko’s Super Colour Waterproof Eyeliners adds a playful look with minimal effort.Pair with a simple lip balm or gloss and you’re good to go!

Gourmet Delights

No picnic is complete without delectable treats. Think gourmet cheeses, fresh fruits, and artisan bread. Or why not opt for takeout? At The Glades we have everything from fresh sushi at itsu to delicious handcrafted pizzas at Bread Ahead!

For drinks, a chilled bottle of rosé or some colourful cans of something sweet and refreshing from M&S are perfect for toasting to a beautiful day with your bestie.
Indulge your sweet tooth with freshly baked pastries and the amazing viral doughnuts from Bread Ahead.

A picnic isn’t just about the food; it’s about having fun too! Bring along a great selection of the latest books from Waterstones for a little light reading. If you’re feeling playful, pack a frisbee or a badminton set. These games are a great way to keep the energy high and the laughter flowing!
