The great thing about a picnic is that you can pretty much have one anywhere. Of course a secluded grassy hill is ideal, but heck, you can set up in a park nearby or even your own yard if you like! For me, Lee, the best picnics, wherever they may be, include some fresh fruit, fine cheeses, baguettes and a glass (or two) of vino but there are really no rules as to what a picnic should entail, although we highly recommend these 10 pretty picnic products!
I love the idea of making it a proper occasion for a day date with your love or a fun afternoon with some good friends. Of course you could throw everything into a plastic cooler and roll out a tarp, but that’s definitely nowhere near as fun as it would be with some of these pretty picnic products! I mean, have you ever seen a more perfect picnic frock than this gingham one?!…
A super cute lantern extends the good times when the sun goes down (and makes for a great centerpiece too), the genius that is a basket with a built-in wine bottle holder, and the really great thing about most of these items? They’re totally applicable to non-picnic entertaining too so you can really get good use out of them.
So what do you say? I’ll bring the treats you bring the spirits!
