What is it about picnics that seem so old fashioned and so romantic? I always tell Cody that one of these days, we are going on a picnic! When I went thrifting earlier in the week, I found the cutest picnic tote and snatched it up as fast as I could.
I paid $6 for this adorable Picnic Time picnic tote in the Cottage Rose pattern. Of course I loved it even more when I found out what it was called. And it came complete and looks like it was never, ever used!
It came with plates, napkins, glasses and silverware for two, plus a little cutting board, cheese knife and wine bottle opener. There is a spot for 2 bottles of wine and the cooler compartment has a detachable bag so you can empty it out easily. Guess what? We had a picnic!
I set up my red and white gingham tablecloth outside under our big oak tree. I set out a plate of crackers, salami and grapes and had a hunk of cheese on the little wood cutting board. A chilled bottle of white zinfandel was opened and we were set to have the perfect little picnic.
The plates have a cottage rose on them that match the roses on the tote. I love blue and red together and I love this picnic set!
Cody loves cheese, crackers and salami so he didn't mind having to sit in the grass for a little yummy treat. He is always indulging me in my wild and crazy ideas. I love him!
I would love to have a vintage wicker picnic basket but I also love this modern, pretty tote as well. It has lots of pockets and places for other fun treats that you might want to bring along on your picnic.
It's been pretty warm and more humid than normal around here lately so today's overcast weather was perfect for a picnic under our old oak tree.
I think everyone should go on a picnic at least once a year, even if it is just in your own front yard!
