Fancy a picnic in the park but don't know what to take or where to go? Let The Rug's new Summer Picnic Brunch do the thinking for you.

Available only at their Chaoyang Park store (in the Lishui Jiayuan residential complex), the picnic set can be ordered on weekends between 11am and 5pm. Priced at RMB 248, the set includes a proper old school wicker picnic basket (which you return at the end of your meal for a refundable deposit of RMB 100); enough food for two people, including soft drinks; a picnic blanket; and all cutlery and glasses. Add RMB 100 to include a bottle of red or white wine from Australian producer Select Vineyards.

What's more, they'll even pick you up from the store in a rickshaw and take you to a secret grassy picnic spot near Park Avenue. Of course, if you have a spot in mind you're welcome to make your own way there.

Once you're done, called their pick-up hotline (8550 2722) and they'll send the rickshaw back to pick you up.

In terms of food, they are currently offering two different menu sets.

Set A includes:

Homemade fried potatoes and veggie chips
Mixed seasonal fruit box
Fresh mixed salad
Organic mushroom and mulberry sandwich
Organic bacon and egg bagel
