How Do You Picnic?

Pin it button big

Today feels like the perfect day for a picnic. We were thrilled and surprised to wake up to a crisp, cool morning after all the sticky, steamy heat from the past few days. Typically for picnicking, we kind of throw things together in bags and a small cooler...we don't really have proper "gear." What are your must-haves for dining in the grass or at the beach?

We just found this great picnic basket online from Ten Thousand Villages (bamboo and split cane handmade in Bangladesh; it sells for $44).
