When it comes to picnicking in style, we know you want both fashion and function. We’ve found some tools of the trade to make outdoor eating as cool and comfortable as it should be…
While some may feel that spreading out the blanket is the only way to go, we prefer this Picnic at Ascot portable wood table with seating for four. There are no tools for set-up, and it packs up nicely for portability. Each seat can accommodate 240lbs, and there’s a lifetime warranty.
If you just can’t do paper plates, then the Williams-Sonoma classic English hamper is for you. The woven willow basket comes with everything from porcelain plates to a fleece blanket, linens, an insulated cooler, wine duffel, and even hand-blown wineglasses.
This year, Target partnered with blogger Poppytalk for an attractive beach picnic collection. With everything from pretty paper plates and glasses to picnic blankets and baskets, this colourful collection gets you glam on the cheap as items are priced from only $3 to $25.
President’s Choice has plenty in store for your outdoor dining needs. The portable grill is compact and allows you to add some heat to your dinner. There’s nothing better than grilled meat or veggies on warm summer nights – one can’t live on salad alone, after all. PC also has some great grilling tips for your next picnic sesh.
Keep You Cool
There’s nothing wrong with going traditional and hauling out those Rubbermaid coolers and drink vessels. Home Hardware has a nice looking navy blue set with plenty of room for a meal and drinks for many. And for only $50 for the set of three, you can’t go wrong.
