With a range of stylish designs, our picnic blankets are made from high-quality materials to ensure comfort and durability. So, whether you're planning a romantic picnic for two or a family gathering, we've got you covered.
1) The average size of a picnic blanket: The standard size of a picnic blanket is around 50 x 60 inches, which is perfect for two people. However, larger groups may require a bigger size. A larger picnic blanket can also be useful if you want to lie down and relax. Compared to the standard size, our picnic blankets offer ample space with a size of 78” x 59” when laid flat, and can be easily transported with a compact size of 16" x 8" when rolled up, and a weight of approximately 3.7 lbs.
2) The size of your picnic basket: Consider the size of your picnic basket when choosing a picnic blanket. The blanket should fit comfortably inside the basket without taking up too much space. In addition, why not consider adding some acrylic wine glasses to your picnic basket? Our breakproof wine glasses, available in a set of 4, are the perfect addition to your outdoor dining experience. Additionally, if you prefer a more elevated and convenient dining experience, you can also use our portable folding picnic table, which is designed to complement our picnic blankets perfectly.
3) The number of people attending: The number of people attending the picnic is a significant factor when choosing the size of the blanket. A rule of thumb is to add an additional 20 inches to the blanket's width for each extra person.
4) The size of your picnic spot: The size of your picnic spot will also affect the size of the blanket you need. If you have limited space, a smaller blanket may be more appropriate. Conversely, if you have a larger area, you may want to go for a larger size.
5) The activities you have planned: Lastly, the activities you have planned for your picnic will also affect the size of your picnic blanket. If you plan to play games, a larger blanket will give you more space. If you only plan to sit and relax, a smaller blanket may suffice.
Conclusion: Choosing the right size of picnic blanket can make all the difference in having a comfortable and enjoyable picnic. By considering the average size, your picnic basket size, the number of people attending, your picnic spot size, and your planned activities, you can find the best picnic blanket size for your needs.
