When we put up our Beach Inspiration blog post, it didn’t take very long for this client to pop us a mail saying that she wanted this picnic! We were rather nervous at first as we have never tried out a beach picnic, and were still in the dreaming phase. We quickly started chatting and planning and before we knew it, the picnic was upon us and we still had so much to do! Time just went out the window and I started to panic a bit. My husband and I chose probably one of the windiest and coldest days that Durban has seen, to practice putting up the canopy on the beach. The good thing was, that if it withheld those winds, it will survive anything. I was feeling much more relaxed now that I knew the canopy worked. On the day of the picnic, we had two other picnics in the Botanical Gardens. This put quite a bit of pressure on us as we were rushing around trying to get everyone settled. We eventually got the two picnics set up and whizzed off to Glen Ashley beach where I stayed behind to set up the picnic, whilst my mom whizzed back to the Gardens to pack up our first two picnics. Everything worked out perfect in the end and this picnic has trumped all our other ones as my absolute favourite. Enjoy!
