Moominous Picnic Essentials

  • 2 min read

The great outdoors, delicious nibbles and refreshing drinks. The perfect way to enjoy a sunny day!

Get all your friends, pack some yummy food and enjoy a fun filled day outside just like the Moomins, who enjoy nothing more than spending a summers day picnicking with their friends and family!

If you want a perfectly Moominous outing, here is a little inspiration on how to make that picnic magic happen. 

‘I think,’ she said, ‘that this is the right moment for us all to go on a nice picnic.’

-Moominmamma, in Moominpappa at Sea (1965)

The essentials

First of all, a bag to pack all the goodies in! A backpack is comfortable to carry, fits a lot in and looks good to boot. But if you decide to go crazy and can’t fit all the treats in just one bag, then you can always pack the rest in a Moominous tote bag!

To make sure all the lovely snacks make it to your destination without getting squished, why not pack them in a Moominous lunch box. They also have removable compartments so you can pack separate goodies! What treats would you fill the lovely lunch box with?

Functional and beautiful tableware

Picnics can get a little messy and that’s all part of the fun! Make sure to take some beautiful napkins with you to add a charming touch to the spread and to protect your clothes from sticky fingers.

Forget about disposable cups and plates, why not use enamel tableware! Enamel is not only very lightweight but super durable, which makes it the perfect choice for a picnic!

We all know how important hydration is, especially on a warm summers day. These Thermal Flasks keep your drinks cold (or hot, if that’s what you prefer) for hours. 

For the sweet tooth

And finally, what we are all here for - Something to eat and drink! Salads, sandwiches, cheese and fruits are classics for a good picnic lunch. Add some Moominous sweets and chocolates and round it off with a warm cup of Moomin coffee!

We hope you have a lovely picnic in good company!
