Go on, put in a little effort

There's nothing like seizing a sunny day with some cheeky alfresco dining, but rather than the usual picnic protocol of limp crudités and paper plates, how about making it a lil' bit fancy? Here's some snazzy ways to help you put on the ritz, brought to you by Ritz Crisp and Thin, purveyors of all things party.

1. Present food on a wooden chopping board

Minimum effort, maximum posh points.

2. Decant supermarket wine into artisanal bottles

For extra Pinterest-appeal, you could even make your own labels.

3. Present crisps in homemade paper cones

'Gosh, you've really gone the extra mile!' They'll say.


4. Bring a batch cocktail or two 

Batch cocktails (which are basically where you mix them up at home and batch them up into bottles) are very much having a moment. Get in on it! Here's some ideas to get you started.


5. Take napkin folding to another level

No-one's allowed to use them and undo all your good work, mind.


Put on the ritz for all occasions with Ritz Crisp & Thin. Try the deliciously tangy Cream Cheese & Onion, the irresistibly moreish Sea Salt & Vinegar, sophisticated Sea Salt & Black Pepper or pack-a-punch Sweet Red Chilli.
