With picnic season in full swing, I can't help but share with you one of my seasonal favorites--this picnic basket by Longaberger. My parents gave one to us during our engagement and we've enjoyed many-a-picnic over the years with this basket. In fact, our basket has withstood 9 moves...two of them cross-country. Very few things made it across the country with us, but this timeless, durable classic was not to be left behind! Amazingly enough it still looks new, almost 11 years later. Our version has a wood top on it with a few toggles (which I highly recommend)...sans fabric liner.
If a picnic basket is not in your near future, throw a large blanket in the trunk of your car for impromptu picnics over the next few months. I am always surprised how often we use ours and the kids really enjoy the spontaneity of a last-minute picnic.
p.s. you can find good deals on these high-quality picnic baskets on Ebay too.
