One of my Craft Projects...

A Picnic Basket! Sorry I did not take a before shot. Actually I received this basket as a gift over 25 years ago. It had some plastic plates and cups and some terribly ugly linens...

All that was taken out and replaced. First, I used some beautiful fabric to line the basket and make some napkins. Next, I purchased some nice (but inexpensive) glass plates and small wine glasses. Also included are a thermos, nicer silverware and a few containers.I am still looking for an appropriate picnic blanket. I used an alpaca blanket (that I would never lay down on the dirty ground) for this picture only. About the blanket is a reproduction of a Victorian blanket carrier made from leather.

I gave my oldest daughter (now 27) a nice picnic basket for her high school graduation present. It puzzled her at first, but she found she loved it when she moved out on her own. A nice say to go on a date without spending much money and being able to talk and spend time with your date and figure out if you want a 2nd date. Much better than movies or a nice restaurant for discovering who they are.

In all my years I've never owned a picnic basket. Don't know why, maybe the cost of them.
I like yours...and I agree with Vivian, you need to go on a picnic now.
