Large Picnic Blanket
What’s The Big Deal About The Large Picnic Blanket?
For those who enjoy outdoor activities, a large picnic blanket serves several functions and offers a variety of benefits. First and foremost, they offer comfort; after all, sitting on the bare concrete floor, beach sand, or dirt ground is rarely comfortable or fun. If you intend to spend the afternoon in nature, it also adds a layer of protection between you and the elements.
A large picnic blanket can also greatly enhance the atmosphere of an outdoor event. Who doesn’t enjoy the ritual of rolling out a picnic blanket for gatherings from time to time? Let’s face it, an outdoor lunch just looks better with a nice family picnic rug to set the mood.
There’s magic in a blanket, so choose wisely and let the good times roll!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How many people can fit on a large picnic blanket?
Shopping for a large picnic blanket is a lot like budgeting for the picnic itself – how many people can it fit?
A standard picnic blanket for two is usually around 127 cm by 150 cm, but if you’re planning a picnic party or a group outing, a much larger size will be necessary. Take the Bibi Blue and Orange Boho Picnic Rug, for instance. It comes in two sizes: 180 cm by 120 cm and 230 cm by 160 cm, which can each handle four to six adults easily.
The shape of the rug can also factor into how seating arrangements could be made and, in turn, how many can comfortably fit on a large mat. A rectangular mat or blanket may be more comfortable for groups that prefer sitting alongside one another, while a square-shaped or circular rug may be better suited for sitting around in a huddle or circle.
With that said, the larger the blanket, the better – and more fun – you’ll have!
Are large picnic blankets foldable or roll-up?
A foldable blanket is always on the checklist for any outdoor activity, whether you’re headed to the beach, park, or yard. The good news is that there are many large picnic blankets available on the market, but how do you know which type is best for your trip?
Here are a few factors to consider when shopping for a large picnic blanket for the outdoors:
- Layers. Generally, outdoor rugs and blankets have two layers: a top layer for user comfort and a bottom layer to protect both the rug and the user from the ground or surface it’s laid over. However, some items, like the Wren Multi-Colour Tribal Picnic Rug, are single-layer and need an underlay for use in areas that may be damp or wet.
- Waterproofing. If you’re the type to love the great outdoors no matter the weather, then a waterproof rug or water-resistant outdoor blanket is a godsend. Make sure to thoroughly check if your desired rug is waterproofed or just water-resistant, as the former has greater water resistance than the latter and may not be suitable for long-term outdoor use.
- Portability. The key to most picnic blankets and rugs is portability, but you’ll want to consider how you plan to use a rug before dismissing a bulkier option. A camping picnic blanket may offer extra portability by being super lightweight and foldable, but a large picnic blanket that is less portable by comparison may be more suited for a casual outdoor event with high foot traffic.
There are also mixed-use rugs that are suited for both indoor and outdoor use. Whichever option you set your heart upon, we’re confident that you’ll find one here at Miss Amara.
What is the weight of a typical large picnic blanket?
Generally speaking, the weight of a typical large picnic blanket varies based on its size and material, with other additional features occasionally factoring into the weight.
For example, the Anita Neutral Cream Boho Picnic Rug, an eco-friendly floral-themed beach picnic rug in neutral beige and ivory tones, comes in two sizes, which would make the smaller version of the rug lighter to carry for outdoor trips. In contrast, if you prefer setting the rug on a more familiar surface, like on your deck or porch, then the larger version of the rug may do nicely.
With that said, a large picnic blanket can weigh anywhere from a little over 500 grams to upwards of two kilos. A lightweight portable mat or party picnic mat for two could weigh under one kilo, while thicker stain-resistant rugs with added padding and larger coverage may weigh substantially more.
You can always check the product specifications for your desired outdoor blanket before buying to ensure the blanket will meet your needs for portability and comfort. From lightweight and comfortable to plush and cushioned, there’s a large picnic blanket out there just waiting for you to bring it home. Find it at Miss Amara, and happy picnicking!
