Over the last 12 months, many of us have had more time to spend doing things we’d perhaps forgotten all about or failed to make time for in our lives. One great thing we have been enjoying more of when the sun is shining is going out for a picnic! Did you know that July is actually National Picnic Month? And August too! To celebrate this, we'd like to share with you the best ways to use Bumble Wrap products to help you enjoy a day filled with sunshine and plenty of picnic delights with friends and family.
Sandwiches are a simple yet staple part of any picnic. Hot weather can often result in stodgy, warm food that can lose its taste, texture, and appeal if not stored properly until you wish to eat it.
To ensure maximum freshness, watch our helpful how to videos to discover the best ways to wrap your sandwiches.
Store your snacks
The great thing about our products is, not only can you wrap up your food up to keep it fresh and tasty but, if you fold them the right way, you can create snack bags and boxes too. Plus, if you're that person who loves to share your picnic adventures on social media, then our funky patterns and colours make for the perfect photos.
Here are a few ideas on how you can store snacks using your beeswax wraps, whether it be nuts, olives, crisps, sausages rolls - you name it!
Prepare the perfect cheeseboard
It just isn't a picnic unless cheese is involved. However, you may not always want to bring an entire block of five different kinds of cheese along with you to a picnic, which is why it’s a great idea to individually wrap your cheeses so it’s easy to prepare a delicious cheese board to tuck into on the day with no wastage.

Create a cover-up
As well as our beeswax products being perfect for folding and wrapping up food, they also make for a great cover-up. Perhaps you’ve prepared a colourful salad to bring along or some homemade coleslaw that you want to keep fresh? Our smaller beeswax wraps are perfect for covering up bowls of most sizes so that all of your culinary masterpieces maintain the best quality possible.
So, let’s make the most of what’s left of our British summer and enjoy fresh food at its finest. Be sure to share with us your picnic photos on social media using the hashtag #MyBumbleWrapPicnic.
