Impromptu Picnic

This weekend, in between thunderstorms, we had a pocketful of really nice weather.  The kind of mild weather that is perfect for an impromptu picnic, and just the excuse I needed to bust out my new picnic basket I found at HomeGoods.   They are designed by Cynthia Rowley and come is several different colors and patterns.

The padded handle is nice and inside, they are insulated.  I was able to fit a small cutting board, 4 tupperware containers, 2 boxes of crackers, a juice box, hand towel and ice bag. 
A small pocket on the outside is great for napkins and cutlery. 
You don’t need to get all fancy for a picnic, just a few light snacks are perfect.  
I showed my son that, on a picnic, you can take off your shoes and enjoy bare feet:)

But then he was off to the playground. 
Have you enjoyed a picnic lately?  Next time I’m bringing the wine.

    Don't you love those bags?!! Elie and I each picked one up at Home Goods. Mine is pink and orange and she scored a really cute navy and white stripe with green whales ( think Vineyard Vine). Looks like a fun date with the little guy.

    I love that picnic basket. That would be great to take to the pool this summer instead of lugging a huge cooler around. I'll have to look for one next time I'm at Homegoods!

    So cute! I guess I need to get more creative-elmo peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just don't cut it these days!

    I haven't been on a picnic in years. I try to get my husband to do it, but he's never that interested. Maybe I'll have to convince him this year! Before it gets too hot and he has another excuse. 😉
