5 Cosy Autumn Activities (where your new blanket is the star)

Autumn is a time when nature paints the world with warm hues and teases at the crisp mornings and cosy evenings to come. As the days grow shorter and the temperatures drop, there's no better time to embrace slow-living and cherish simple moments together. In this blog post, we'll explore five delightful autumn activities where your new wool blanket from The British Blanket Company will truly come into its own.

1. Pack An Autumn Picnic

An autumn picnic in the park is a quintessential British tradition. Spread out your waterproof picnic blanket under the golden trees and indulge in a feast of seasonal delights.

Try these autumnal picnic food suggestions:

  • Warm butternut squash soup in a flask
  • Freshly baked crusty bread with poppy seeds
  • Slices of mature Cheddar and Red Leicester cheese
