Perfect picnicware

Even if you have china crockery for your caravan or motorhome kitchen, chances are you’ll be enjoying a few picnics and barbeques when you take your vehicle away this summer. If this is the case, plastic picnicware is often a more sensible option as it’s lighter to carry, easier to pack away and tougher on wear and tear.

The Coast team has scoured the shelves to find some of the prettiest picnicware available and here are a few of our favourites:

Fun and stylish backpack containing four plastic plates, four acrylic wine glasses, four stainless steel and plastic knives, forks and spoons, four napkins, cheese knife, bread board, bottle opener/corkscrew, salt and pepper pots. Includes insulated cool section, polyester picnic rug and detachable bottle cooler.

Biodegradable picnic set

Picnicware meets the eco-friendly revolution! All the items in this set are made from bagasse, which is made from sugar cane, and potato starch and are complete biodegradable. This means they can be re-used if washed carefully, or they will turn to compost within a week if discarded – an idea solution if you’re looking for a disposable picnic set that doesn’t harm the environment surrounding you.

The picnic set contains four plates, four beakers, four bowls, four forks, knives and spoons, eight recycled paper napkins and a gingham tablecloth.
