Twitter competition: win a Smith picnic blanket

To celebrate Smith’s 2,000th tweet (any excuse), we’re giving away one of our super-soft lambswool picnic rugs – perfect for making the most of alfresco eating opportunities this summer.

Handmade in Wales exclusively for Mr & Mrs Smith, the picnic rug is the creation of Melin Tregwynt, the woolly folk behind bedspreads, throws and cushions as sold by Mulberry, and as seen in Smith hotels such as The Olde Bell Inn and Harbourmaster Hotel. It has waterproof nylon backing, a smart Smith signature logo, and it’s so darn lovely that it normally costs £120.

For your chance to win it. just show us your best picnic snaps on Twitter. Tag your snaps with #Smithnic to enter. We might even pull some Smith hotel guidebooks off the shelves to give to runners-up.

We’ll post the winning pics right here on the blog on June 8. Happy picnic pic-picking!

Oh, and if you’re in search of the perfect picnic spot , don’t forget that Smith’s in-the-know destination guides signpost you to the best spots to lay your blanket…

Before joining Mr & Mrs Smith, managing editor Anthony Leyton was at The Independent, writing about universities for the Push Guides. As you can imagine, it was a tough task persuading him to exchange league tables for luxury holiday retreats and halls of residence for hip hotels. Anthony has penned pieces for publications both top-drawer (The Telegraph) and top-shelf (Fiesta), and he has had a love of travel ever since he found bullet holes in the walls of a hotel room in New Orleans. He also has too many pets. But that's another tale altogether.

    Fun competition! I love picnics in the summer. One of the first things I do when arriving in a new city is to check out the local parks.
