There’s nothing better than after a long week at work or a tough audition the day before than to get together with the girls and just chill out. That’s exactly what I did last week. It’s just what I needed after an audition, which I don’t think went particularly well to drown your sorrows with a glass or two… or three or four, of prosecco. You plan a lovely sunny day picnic with the girls. A few bottles of prosecco opened, nibbles, S’mores on the BBQ and glorious sunshine and then… it rains! Not just rains but pours. But we don’t let a bit of rain spoil our fun! We just have an indoor picnic instead!
I can’t take any credit for this as it was all Helen and her friend Tania that set it up. But with Helen in charge I knew it was going to be pretty amazing. Tiger is the perfect shop for cute picnic accessories and I am loving all the colourful plates and bowls which are only £1 from their store. Partner that with the colourful cushions and beautiful flowers picked from her garden it just makes for a gorgeous setting.
And no girly picnic is complete without a Pimp your Prosecco bar! These cute panda cups are from Tiger and are £2, which Helen wrote our names on, so we knew which was ours. The last thing you want is someone downing your prosecco! The perfect concoction for me is Prosecco with a splash of Pomegranate & Elderflower cordial, finished off with some raspberries and and a couple of peach slices. Delicious!
What better way to finish off our picnic than with a S’more. We used Chocolate Hobnobs, mini marshmellows and Nutella. You smother one of the Hobnobs with nutella, add some mini marshmellows and pop them under a grill. Once the marshmellows have melted you add another hobnob on top and you have the most delicious and chocolatey S’more. I sadly didn’t get a picture of my S’more because to be honest, I just wanted to get it in my mouth!
Once you have this beautiful setting all that’s left to do is add your girlfriends and have a good gossip. It’s what every girl needs for a perfect pick me up!
