Break, Eat, Picnic, Nature, RecoveryWordPress bloggers have been a tremendous force for good in recent months encouraging another to STAY AT HOME, STAY SAFE, STAY ALERT and FOLLOW THE DIRECTION FOR EVERYONE’S PROTECTION.

It is a joy to see the blogging community have all been doing their bit in helping each other through these hard times. We are very excited about an event ahead that we hope will help you to build more bonds with fantastic bloggers who make a great contribution to the delightful WordPress blogging community.

In the last BAKE-OFF post, we told you about the BAKING CONTEST. But the second feature of THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF 2020 is:


Many of us are still having difficulties finding baking essentials at our supermarkets. We don’t want to leave anybody out of THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF, which is why we are also hosting a virtual picnic to coincide with the BAKING CONTEST.

If baking is not an option for you at the moment…or else you are not that keen on baking at all, could you bring along something else to our SUMMER PICNIC? It could be your homemade lemonade or sangria, it could be a dip like hummus or guacamole. Perhaps you make a fabulous coleslaw or potato salad. Indeed salads of every variety would be welcome because it is summer and we are all trying to be healthy.

We would love an international flavour to the SUMMER PICNIC. Do you make spring rolls? Tacos or fajitas? How about pakoras or bhajis? We would love any type of tapas, mezes or canapes. Pickles, chutneys, jams, curds or any other preserve are all welcome.

Undeniably all three of us have a sweet tooth, so we welcome sweet contributions. Do you make trifle or fruit jelly or any other sweet treats?

What do we need you to do?

Please send a photo of your picnic creations so it can be featured in The Great Bloggers’ Bake-Off 2020 to:

It would be great if you could start making picnic treats now and send the photos in as soon as possible! But the BAKE-OFF and the SUMMER PICNIC will be held in just over seven weeks time. If you want to send us the recipe you followed or a story about what you chose to make, we love all of that. We want to share you as a blogger as well as your bake to the whole of WordPress!

Of course if you would like to create your own post about your picnic creation – please do so, and please mention THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF 2020 SUMMER PICNIC and invite your blogging buddies and followers to get involved.

(If you have any questions at all – please feel free to post your questions in the comments of any of our posts and we will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.)

    1. I have all sorts of ideas for picnic treats in my head.
      I have promised myself to make a bake to enter into the contest for Jeanne to peruse – part of me wants to make a roulade, but the recipe I have chosen looks a bit complicated. So I might choose something simpler….or else I am clearly on my way to a baking disaster! But I definitely have two things in mind for the summer picnic already. I remember going on a picnic with Goldfinch and I made a potato salad from a Greek recipe book that was delicious…and there is another picnic recipe that I have never made but it looks so tempting, I really want to try it out.

  1. Hi, dropped by from Phoebe’s Meet and Greet. Had to see what a virtual picnic looked like! Impressed and I think it’s a wonderful creative idea. Post and food looks attractive and yummy. I don’t have the time to contribute but am happy to eat if that’s okay?
    When you get a break do stop by mine – but you’ll have to bring your own goodies! πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Thanks so much for dropping by!

      Last year three of us (Gary, Jeanne and me) hosted THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF 2019 and we were blown away by it.
      We wanted to do it again this year but it has been hard to find baking essentials….so….we hope the picnic will mean those who are unable to bake this year can stlll join in the fun πŸ™‚

      It is a great family fun event and a chance to meet lots of lovely bloggers.
