A perfect picnic blanket for stylish summer fun
Ah, the pleasures of picnics. Nothing evokes the spirit of summer quite like days spent feasting from a wicker basket on a picnic blanket. Whether with friends in the countryside, family at the beach, or at home in the garden, a picnic blanket is the focus of fun and togetherness. This makes finding the right picnic blanket so important. With so many beautiful picnic blankets, picnic rugs and outdoor blankets on offer, it can be hard to make the right choice so here’s some savvy advice from URBANARA.
Choosing the right picnic blanket
The perfect picnic blanket must display some special qualities. It must be hardy enough to resist moisture and handle rugged outdoor use. A picnic blanket must be soft enough for comfortable lounging. And it must have that breezy elegance that makes a statement about the spirit of summer. The good news is that today’s picnic blankets sold at URBANARA tick all the boxes.
Picnic blankets - materials galore
Forget sticky plastic picnic blankets. A contemporary picnic blanket and picnic rug come in a wide range of materials. These picnic blankets include natural wool and cotton, various synthetics, blends of cotton and linen, and hybrids with synthetic bottoms and natural tops for a perfect waterproof blanket to lay your wicker picnic basket and summery snack on.
Which picnic blanket to choose
Nothing beats wool picnic blankets and mats for sheer natural softness. A wool picnic blanket with rubber backing is the perfect way to stay dry. Another option is to place a polyester mat on the ground and lay a soft wool blanket on top. Ta-da, a waterproof blanket.
With its soft and sophisticated feel, cotton is another lovely natural material for picnic blankets. Cotton picnic blankets often come with polyester wadding for sumptuous padding. These cotton picnic blankets also fold up tightly allowing them to be popped into a bag for ease of storage and transport.
While lacking the natural feel and cachet of wool and cotton, synthetics have many advantages. For one thing, materials such as acrylic are waterproof. After all, nothing puts a damper on a ground-lounging day out than soggy grass. However picnic blankets with natural tops and synthetic bottoms offer users the best of both worlds.
Which size picnic blanket to choose
When it comes to picnics, it’s a case of more the merrier so a large picnic blanket is a smart investment. Big families need space so it’s smart to invest in a picnic rug large enough to offer comfortable seating for everyone.
Picnics are festive occasions so blankets need to be roomy enough to accommodate all the revellers and tough enough to deal with spills. A large picnic blanket with rubber backing makes an ideal solution. Most picnic blankets come in their own stylish tote bags making it easy to toss one into the car.
Beaches are great spots for picnics with that lovely ocean air and sound of the waves. A bright and breezy beach blanket with rubber backing offers the perfect sitting space and a quick shake at the end gets rid of all the sand.
