Our cai & jo Picnic Essentials

Hooray - summer is finally upon us! We can finally venture outside to soak up the golden rays that we have been waiting all year for - but why not add good friends, your favourite snacks and delicious drinks into the mix! We LOVE picnics, and have come up with a very helpful list of essentials to take your picnics to the next level, AND we’ve made it catchy. Our recipe is simple, all you need are the 3 c’s - comfort, colour, and of course, cai & jo!



1. Woven Blankets

What's a picnic without a beautiful, comfortable blanket to place yourself, and all your essentials on. We have a range of colours, sizes, and styles to suit your needs. All you need to start your picnic is an outdoor space and a blanket, easy. Throw the blanket high up in the air and lay it down wherever it falls. Perfect.

2. Cushions

We love cushions at cai & jo, we believe soft furnishings aren’t solely for indoors! Bring them to your picnic so you can lean back, take a nap, or read a book. Check out that album you’ve been meaning to listen to, or just relax with all your snacks! Our cushions are super soft, and look extremely cute matched with our woven blankets.


3. Bandanas

Bandanas are a great accessory for completing any outfit, and can be used as protection from those strong rays! They will also add to your new picnic aesthetic as they instantly incorporate a cute, vintage vibe.

4. Fans

The summer months can be HOT, so why not bring a beautiful fan to your picnic! Swoop up that cold breeze with our new hand-held fans, and look fancy whilst doing so! Bring paradise to your picnic with palm trees and tropical flowers - whilst also keeping cool!

5. Coasters

We love our sunny coasters, and they come in a variety of colours to suit any aesthetic. You will need a base to place your drinks, so why not choose some that will bring sunshine to your beverages! They will keep your picnic blanket safe from spillage, whilst also adding a splash of luxurious gold.

6. Makeup Bags

You will need to bring your daily summer essentials with you, so pop them in one of our velvet makeup bags! They are extremely roomy and have pockets to safely separate and store smaller items. Bring your sun cream, lip balm and a mirror (in case you like messy snacks like us!)

7. Trinket Dishes

Pick up a few of our tiny trinket dishes for smaller snacks such as nuts or colourful fruits. We loved using berries as they complimented the subtle tones in the glazes and looked so pretty (but didn’t last long!)

cai & jo

If you take a peek on our Instagram and TikTok, you’ll find that we love experimenting with different ways to use and arrange all of our products, and we have so much fun whilst doing so! Especially when it means that we can spend time together, and get creative! We would absolutely love to see how you incorporate cai & jo into your picnics, so make sure to tag us, and most importantly, have fun!
