It is starting to feel like summer, and summer means picnics!
Picnic-ing became very popular at the turn of the nineteenth century. One of the most famous picnics for any Jane Austen fan takes place in Emma, when Emma and company take a trip to Box Hill.
In the Regency period, picnics were an elaborate affair and required a lot of advanced planning. Care was taken to arrange every element from recipes and activities to decorations and clothing. There are so many ways to incorporate Jane Austen in a picnic and to make you feel as if you’ve stepped inside one of her books, which is why we created our picnic packs.
Whether you are planning an elaborate trip to Boxhill similar to the famous scene in Emma or a simple trip to the park, you’ll find inspiration for your own Regency themed picnic with our Jane Austen 200 Picnic Pack.
"Two or three more of the chosen only were to be admitted to join them, and it was to bedone in a quiet, unpretending, elegant way, infinitely superior to the bustle and preparation, the regular eating and drinking, and picnic parade of the Eltons and the Sucklings".
