Pack Your Basket
We like the idea of bringing along a braided basket for keeping your food in one place. If you have a lot of cold dishes, pack them in a small cooler or lunchbox and pack it in the basket for easier carrying. Our Push Top Glass Storage Jars are great for chips, pretzels, cookies or any candy you want to bring; their sealed tops keep contents from spilling out and the durable glass allows you to see what you’re grabbing out of the basket when you reach your picnic spot.
Bring a Bag
A nice tote bag will keep your keys, camera, cell phone and other necessities away from the food but [stylishly] within reach as you’re eating. This handmade cotton canvas tote bag is ideal for the outdoors and will even hold some food items if you feel like stopping by the Farmer’s Market on your way to the park.
Before you dig in, get comfortable on a blanket large enough for you and your friends. A cotton quilted throw works perfectly, offering a cozy place to sit on the ground and a blanket that can be easily thrown in the washing machine on your arrival home. We also like the added comfort of a pillow or pillows, and and indoor/outdoor variation is the best option for your day of picnicking.
