Yesterday the weather was just so beautiful, we decided to have an impromptu picnic at the park for dinner. So, in a last minute effort to get at least most of what we needed, I made a list!
-Food. This is important. I quickly made up some hard boiled eggs with enough time for them to cool and be ready to eat. Grabbed some cheese, cucumbers, grapes, crackers and drinks. I am very thankful my son LOVES hard boiled eggs. He does not like sammies (sandwiches), however.
-Blanket, in case there were no tables avail. There were though. I have decided, however, that I need a super spiffy picnic blanket though. Must search flickr for some inspiration or something. Any ideas?
-Camera! Which I ended up forgetting in the car and not having. Oops.
-Eating utensils, if needed. I prefer the finger food variety of things for this though.
-Cooler to put it all in!
And while I made this list, I thought of some things that would make my life a bit easier when I do these things. Like, a picnic basket! What a brilliant idea.
So I went on an internet hunt to see what's out there. And in case anyone wonders, yes, these are now high on my wishlist!
I think I would like this one:
I just love all the options of colors this Metro Picnic Basket comes in!
Oooh, or this one!
Yes, great family one with this Oxford Picnic Basket for 4
And this one for the kiddos is adorable too!
Kids Picnic Basket. Cute!
Oh yes, it would make things more fun!
