Do you love setting out on a picnic? There is something about dining in the open air that is both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. Planning a picnic requires preparation and thought. While you think of the other aspects, let us help you with choosing your perfect outdoor blanket.
Your picnic blanket can make or break your experience. A good picnic blanket/towel will make your time comfortable and relaxing. Plus, being waterproof, you can then use it to protect you from the rain when you are out in the open. Let’s go ahead and see what you should consider before buying an outdoor blanket.
Your picnic blanket should be large enough to accommodate your menu, you, and your family. Too small and it will ruin your experience. No one wants to keep their plate on the ground, competing with ants, or get a wet rear sitting on the ground!
A picnic blanket that looks good, feels good. You are on a picnic and chances are you are planning to click a few “selfies” to preserve the memory. A colorful and good-looking blanket will instantly add ambiance to your pictures. Adding a splash of color, or an interesting pattern to your picnic will only heighten your experience. Afterwards, bring your towel inside and use it to add a splash of color to your interior design.
3. Ready to carry
Your picnic blanket should be convenient to carry. With the all the accouterments you will have to carry, you will want a blanket that is compact and portable. Deck Towels are easily foldable and lightweight, folding to the size of a newspaper.
Your picnic towel should be soft, but that does not imply that they do not have to be durable. Your picnic blanket will go through some harsh torture because of the ground you will place it on and the usage it is supposed to undergo. It should be able to stand that abuse. Linen is a very durable fabric.
Another important factor to consider is the softness. Coarse fabric will irritate your skin. While your blanket should be sturdy, it should not compromise on its softness.
