On a serene summer day, having the perfect picnic is a fun, romantic and economical way to spend time with your family, eat lunch and enjoy some fun in the sun. Picnic supplies have evolved over the years – leaving consumers with an array of goodies to choose from.
#1 The Traditionalist
The wicker picnic basket has become a symbol of the art of picnicking. Its classic design and sturdy build make it both beautiful and practical. Try the Tivoli Insulated Market Basket.
#2 The Modernist
The evolution of the picnic has seen a modernization of its number#1 player – the basket. These newer models stay true to the shape of the original, but boast a lightweight and colorful insulated material, and have a removable cover! The Metro basket is a fun, stylish option.
#3 Date on the grass
Having the perfect blanket to stretch out on is a vital element. These days, any picnic blanket worth its salt is soft and comfy on the top, and waterproof and durable underneath. Try the Sunshine Blanket Tote, which folds up for easy transport.
#4 From vine to grass
Some light, crisp Riesling on a warm summer’s day can be the perfect way to enjoy your picnic. Bring along a picnic wine set, which includes a corkscrew thermometer, stoppers and more.
#5 If the ground gets too bumpy
Lounging in a nice chair can make picnics all the more relaxing. Make sure to bring one that’s lightweight and multifunctional. The Outdoor Sports Chair has a side tray and utility pockets.
#6 After lunch delights
If coffee or tea is what you crave after a hearty picnic lunch, bring along a good quality thermos and duffel to keep the hot beverages piping.
#7 Take a tumble
Kids can have a ball, and not worry about dropping their drinks, with fun-looking and nearly-indestructible tumblers.
#8 Under your umbrella
In case it starts to dribble, or if you want some shade from the hot sun, bring along a perfect picnic umbrella.
Whether you’re eating hot dogs around a park bench, or enjoying a full-blown picnic with all the fixings, having the right tools can make your picnic day more stylish, fun and simple.
