Picnic Gear

Here are a few ideas for picnic gear that will last all season. Some I own and some are on the wish list.

Willow Picnic Basket with Lid: For romantic, small picnics, this basket is lined with lace, and rather perfect for summer picnics.

Extra Large Picnic Blanket: Whether you’re off to the beach or a local park, this extra large blue and white striped picnic blanket is water-resistant and sand proof and rolls into an easy-to-carry blanket.

Coleman Power Chill Cooler: This portable, electric cooler keeps food warm and cold. It’s one I purchased early this season. It’s large but perfect for road trips, picnics, and camping. Plug it into your car or a portable battery.

Shop your house for wicker baskets, hand-me-down vintage blankets, and even charming quilts that can be washed. All help make the perfect picnic!
