More than Just a Throw: Choosing Picnic Blankets

| March 30, 2011

All picnic blankets are the same, right? This is not exactly true. In fact, if you have ever tried to use a normal blanket or throw or sheet as a picnic blanket, then you know that there are can be some hazards that come along with this. The blanket can be unwieldy to pack and carry. In addition, if the grass or ground is damp, then, you will find that you are sitting on a wet blanket pretty quickly and that is not a comfortable way to spend a picnic. Additionally, regular throws or blankets will not stand up well under weather conditions. It would be better to find something to sit or lay on during your picnic that will be made just for the occasion would it not?

This is why you need to consider picnic blankets made specifically for the excursions. There is much more than meets the eye to these throws. In addition to being quiet useful, they will include a number of styles, patterns and designs so that you can choose the one that will suit your taste the very best. You do not have to worry about a clashing, mismatched blanket when you picnic with these. The picnic blankets should offer usefulness as well.

For example, look for blankets that include waterproof backing. This way, if the ground is damp, you will not have to worry about your clothes getting damp as well, and your whole picnic can be much more comfortable, whether you sit or lay on them.

Look for picnic blankets that include their own carry totes as well. They should be able to fold up or roll up neatly so that you will easily be able to transport the picnic blankets without the bulk and unwieldiness of a regular throw. This will make transportation to the picnic area much, much easier and you may find that you will want to take two or three picnic blankets so that everyone has space to enjoy a relaxing time.

When you are getting ready for a picnic excursion, make sure to consider picnic blankets that are designed specifically for the occasion. They should include waterproof backing, durable fabrics, and an easy transportation method so that you will not have to deal with any hassle while planning and enjoying your picnic trip. In addition, make sure you choose a blanket that suits your style so that you never have to feel out of fashion or tacky with the design you choose.
