Throwing together a picnic is easy enough if you have the right things on hand. Stock your pantry with these five essentials, and with a quick trip to the market, you'll be picnicking in no time.
The Perfect Picnic Basket
Rather than a traditional picnic hamper, we prefer a Moroccan Tote. It's big enough for all your things, and easy to throw over your shoulder to tote to the beach or the park.
For a very large picnic, try our Very Large Moroccan Tote
The Perfect Picnic Blanket
We think a vintage linen sheet is a good alternative to the standard itchy plaid wool blanket. It serves as a pretty canvas for your picnic, and is easy to wash and store after your adventure.
The Perfect Wine Glass
Sipping wine from a proper glass at a picnic is so civilized. We love these French glasses because they are made from tempered glass so they're (nearly) unbreakable. Plus bonus -- they stack.
The Perfect Picnic Napkin
Just like glasses for your wine, cloth napkins are so civilized. We love a mix of stripes, plaids and checks to add just a bit of casual sophistication to our picnics.
The Perfect Plate
Ceramic plates, are nice for a picnic, but they're heavy and they break. We think these linen coated trays are a nice alternative.
