A Picnic in January? {Review}

Here in Southeast Louisiana, we are all confused.  Is it Spring?  Is it Winter?  The temperature has been so inconsistent that most of us are suffering from allergy symptoms that we normally do not see in January.  Even my azalea bushes are in bloom!  Despite the negative, we are thoroughly enjoying the warmer temperatures which are allowing us to get outside and be more active than we normally can this time of year.  In fact, it’s time for a picnic!

After our meal, the kids decided to play on our swingset, so I broke out our new reclining camp chair from Picnic Fun in order to enjoy the beautiful weather and relax in style! About the chair:

The Reclining Camp Chair is no ordinary camp chair. It features a folding steel frame that can hold up to 300 lbs., padded seat and back rest covered in durable 600D polyester canvas, 3 seating positions, adjustable armrests, an insulated drink holder in the right armrest, a large zippered pocket on back of chair, and a matching storage tote with carrying strap.

Not only does the chair look pretty cool, it is incredibly comfortable!  The reclining feature is pure genius.  While you do have to get out of the chair in order to adjust the incline, the reward is totally worth it.  I was worried that reclining would negate the use of the cupholder, but my cup stayed level in the holder (it’s even insulated!).  I also love that the back of the chair has a zippered pouch to store items such as your keys, phone or wallet (making dragging a purse to a sporting event or picnic unnecessary).  I can’t wait to take our new chair to the upcoming Mardi Gras parades!

If you are looking forward to the picnics of Spring, get prepared by checking out the accessories from Picnic Fun (the picnic baskets are great). You can purchase the reclining camp chair for just $62.95!

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  Others may have a differing opinion of the product.  While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions are 100% mine.


  1. Oh that chair looks like heaven! I love it. Here in Minnesota I’m afraid we are several months away from reclining in a chair outside. I’m so ready for spring. 🙂

    It’s a lot warmer here than usual too (UK), what is going on? This time last year it was freezing!
    We have those chairs in the Uk but I haven’t seen one that reclines 🙂
