Taking It With You…

10th June 2011

The right hamper, a comfortable rug, a suitable drinks carrier – all you need to make al fresco on-the-move a breeze…

The Blyton basket – inspired by picnics of old – has lashings of vintage charm.

This smart red tin with removable willow tray contains a set of chic ceramics and textiles perfect for a stylish picnic for two.
Available from the rather marvellous www.picnicshop.co.uk – along with a wide range of other al fresco accessories, including easy-to-carry rugs and safari-style three bottle cool bags.

Traditional French living – en plein air, of course – is the inspiration for this delightful ‘Bakers Chambray Basket’, a traditional willow picnic basket with a double hinged lid and leather straps. With a woven blue-and-white checked liner, co-ordinating woven stripe napkins and fresh white ceramics, it’s perfect for casual picnics with friends – at home or away.

From www.interiors-tides.co.uk – a great source of home and kitchen accessories plus deckchairs and hammocks for really relaxed outdoor living.
