Basket Case

I have a thing for baskets and picnic baskets especially. I love picnic food and the idea of making food and drink portable to places where it can be consumed "out of the norm" yet in comfort. In other words, I like to eat and drink outside with all the "niceties" of inside (napkins, flatware, glasses, etc).

I think outfitted picnic baskets make lovely wedding gifts. Here is a traditional English style picnic hamper that would make a great gift. Looks like tea and scones on the lawn, doesn't it?

Not really a basket but rather a tote, this clever bag is made of astroturf, lined with red and white gingham and includes cutlery in the outside pocket.

I love this little felt picnic set found here on Etsy. The banana even slides out of the jacket and the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches come apart. I know a little girl that would LOVE this (are you listening, Santa?). Just needs little felt ants and you are all set to pretend picnic.
