5 IDEAS TO TURN AN EVERYDAY PICNIC INTO A ROMANTIC PICNIC EXPERIENCE
Picnics are the ideal way to spend time outdoors, enjoying good food and great company. But why settle for an ordinary picnic when you can turn it into a memorable and romantic experience? Whether you're planning a surprise date, celebrating a special occasion or simply want to add a spark to your relationship, here are five ideas to transform your everyday picnic into a romantic Melbourne adventure.
DRESS TO IMPRESS:
One of the most effective ways to elevate your picnic experience is to dial up the style and feel good. Pop your jeans and shorts aside for the evening and opt for something a little more fun. Not only will you feel more special, but it really helps to set the scene for the evening. Plus, if you’ve been looking for an excuse to buy a new outfit, this could be it!
A SHORT TREASURE HUNT:
Turn the anticipation of finding the perfect picnic spot into a romantic adventure with a short treasure hunt. Leave clues or a trail for your partner to follow. You could even incorporate meaningful memories into the hunt, adding an element of surprise and excitement to your picnic date.
PLAY A GAME – ESTHER PEREL:
Games can be a great way to encourage connection (or break the ice if it’s a first date). We can’t recommend Where Should We Begin – a Game of Stories enough. That’s why we’ve included it in our Picnic Experience elevated add-ons menu. Developed by world-renowned relationship psychologist Esther Perel, the game is designed to encourage deep conversations and connection. With curious questions about life, you’ll both have the opportunity to open up, share your thoughts and feelings and strengthen your bond. Plus, it's a wonderful way to learn more about each other, even if you've been together for years.
What's a romantic picnic without delicious food? Upscale your picnic cuisine with a gourmet picnic from Twilight Picnics featuring the best locally-sourced fare this city has to offer! From artisanal cheeses and cured meats to fresh fruits, olives, dips and sweets, there’s so much to choose from – even something for the pooch! Plus, we have paired bottles of wine, sparkling cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks available too.
QUALITY PICNIC SETTING:
Lastly, pay attention to the picnic setting. Bring along a comfortable blanket or even a low picnic table if you have one. Consider adding cushions or throw pillows for extra comfort. Twilight Picnics offers all this and more in our Experience Picnic.
Turning an everyday picnic into a romantic experience requires a little extra thought and effort, but the rewards are well worth it. These small touches will not only deepen your connection but also keep the spark alive in your relationship.
So, pack your picnic basket (or get us to do it for you), gather your loved one and embark on a romantic picnic adventure that will leave you both with cherished memories for years to come.
