I'll admit it: I'm a bit of a picnic basket hoarder. I own not one, but three traditional picnic baskets. When I'm not picnicking with them to my heart's content, they're used in my kitchen and dining room to store tea towels, napkins, and place mats. It seems as if this gentleman, watching rowing crews compete at the Henley Royal Regatta in Henley-on-Thames, England, is also a fan of the traditional picnic basket. But these days, not everyone is picking up the basket for their al fresco lunches. More often than not, coolers, including soft-sided coolers, are the choice of picnicking crowds. What about you? Are you a picnic basket fan? Or do you use a cooler?
Picnic season is in full swing and if you plan on packing a meal and heading to a local park, you'll need the proper picnic gear. From a basket to a blanket, planning a picnic requires the essential tools. To ensure that everyone hosts fabulous picnics, you headed off to market in search of the most perfect picnic gear. You looked for picnic baskets, plastic serving ware, and anything else that screams picnic. You saved your discoveries in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Picnic Gear.
I love this fun, floral bag that jspeed found. The matching plates are festive and the colors outdoorsy. Not to mention its tote like shape is very modern picnic basket. For more picnic gear, scroll to the right below.
