Life’s a Picnic

Yes I know we’re only in March, but I, Poppy, ever the optimist am determined that we shall all be picnicking with our nearest and dearest before too long; lazing on grassy banks, dipping our toes in the water, dipping carrot sticks into pots of homemade hummus, (smug Poppy) and feeling all Summer giddy from the wine. (Or Orangina – wine makes me fall over.)

‘Life’s a Picnic’ is a special little company, created and cared for by Evie and Elly Pace, whose mission is to ensure you, (you) and I, (Poppy) have the most exquisite, charming and unique ‘luncheon hampers’ (with proper vintage cutlery too!) to accompany us on our hazy Summer outings. No plastic picnicking for us – no siree.

Based in the pretty Cotswolds, Evie and Elly whirl about their workshops in a picnicky haze, fitting and kitting out the beautiful willow hampers themselves. They source their vintage china, cutlery and beautiful fabrics for the tablecloths and napkins from all over the UK and do all the sewing and leatherwork too. Clever girlies.


With their linen collections ranging from 19th century floral deigns up to 1960’s retro classics and their bespoke service on offer too, you’ll be sure to find a beautiful picnic hamper that suits you down to the ground.

(Boom boom).
