Jacobs Creek Picnic
I had the pleasure of being invited, along with three friends, to the Jacobs Creek picnic in Sydney by the Contagious Network last weekend. It was such a lovely event. The invitation arrived the week prior with the most adorable friendship bracelets – four in total. The bracelets were the tickets into the event.
How cute is that?
I LOVE picnics but can never persuade Colm to come along – this was the perfect excuse.
On arrival, we were presented with our hamper of food (chicken wraps, quiche, crackers, cheese and brownies) and picnic blanket. As I’m lactose intolerant, I didn’t eat everything on offer, but the boys informed me the food was ‘delish’.
Jacobs Creek were launching their new cider wine mix – Pip & Seed, which was surprisingly nice. I’m a massive cider fan. It’s my go to drink in the hot weather as it’s so refreshing so I wasn’t sure how cider and wine mixed together would taste. I’m not going to lie, I was a little nervous tasting it but was pleasantly surprised.
There are 3 flavors to choose from – Crisp, Fruity and Sweet. My favorite is Crisp.
The venue was beautifully dressed with huge over-sized balloons and cute floral arrangements. Jacobs Creek also had wait staff walking around the picnic blankets refreshing drinks. It was great to sit and relax, catching up with friends for a couple of hours. We also listened to live music by Boogie Nights (The band had most people up on their feet dancing) and played giant games. They had an instagram wall which attendee’s could create GIF’s at or take photos at. One lucky attendee also won a trip to New Caladonia! It was a really fun event.
We had a really great time and it was such a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
