Picnics in the Park
The days are getting longer and sunnier – perfect for some picnic fun!
Now that the sunshine has graced us with its presence, it’s time to welcome in the picnic season! Lucky for Albury locals, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to great picnic ideas and accessories to suit the occasion. Make your picnic experience one to remember with help from a few local businesses offering their range of unique supplies.
Picnicwear from Home inspirations
Can’t seem to locate the old picnic basket? Don’t despair, our friends at Home Inspirations have got you sorted! With a range of colourful insulated picnic baskets and cooler bags to choose from, there’ll be no reason to worry about the heat and even more reason to stock up on your favourite cheese and wine straight from the fridge. While you’re at it why not add some Melamine or bamboo dishware to your shopping list? The perfect bold and bright addition to your outdoor setting! At Home Inspirations, you’ll find plates, tumblers, and cutlery to complete your picnic setup.
Yard Games from Who What Why & Good Games
There’s nothing quite like good food, sunshine, and a few lawn games to raise excitement levels. Now that we are blessed with being able to gather in groups, it would be rude not to ignite a little competition amongst friends at your next picnic!
Who What Why and Good Games in Albury are our go-to stores for the best of the best when it comes to outdoor games and activities. Rope Quoits, Giant Jenga, Finska and Frizbee are just a few of our favourites, and if it’s the little ones you want to entertain, then look no further than the Aussie-made jellyfish kite (it sure is a crowd-pleaser)!
Cocktails from Temperance & General
What’s a picnic without a few cocktails? For those of you looking to enjoy a little tipple with your afternoon grazing then perhaps consider some takeaways from Albury’s own original laneway bar Temperance & General. These guys have certainly nailed it in the drinks department and their stirred and shaken beverages come recommended! If you’re looking for suggestions, then you don’t have to ask us twice – it’s common knowledge that the Salted Caramel Espresso Martini is not to be overlooked or underestimated.
Desserts from DASH, Monumental Cakes, or Nine Canaries
With drinks sorted, we’ve got dessert on the brain, and with the authentic picnic experience comes a definite need for a few sweet treats! Lucky for us we find ourselves surrounded by three businesses catering for raw and baked goods in the heart of Albury.
Add Dash, Monumental Cakes and Nine Canaries to your list of places to visit and don’t leave without a box full of goodies. Our heads are already spinning with the choice between raw rocky road, sorbet ice cream cake and creamy lemon tart to add to the afternoon tea menu.
Pamper packs from BASQ
Looking for the luxe picnic experience? If you’ve got your heart set on a day out with the girls, including champagne and pampering, then how about adding a DIY mani/pedi to the agenda? We’ve got just the thing to spoil your gal pals! Albury’s own Basq Beauty team are professionals when it comes to rejuvenating, soothing, calming and healing, and while it doesn’t beat the real thing, they also offer a range of DIY spa kits to use outside the salon! Treat yourself next time you’re off to soak up some sun!
So, soak up the sunshine and don’t forget to tag us when sharing a photo of your next picnic set up around Albury’s CBD!
