- Our top pick is the Picnic at Ascot Collapsible Picnic Basket because it comes with everything you need for an enjoyable picnic - minus the food, of course.
The weather is fine, the afternoon is open, and you've got the best recipe for chicken salad - Conditions are perfect for a picnic. Whether you're setting out with your family, planning a romantic outing for two plus a bottle of champagne, or even enjoying a meal on your own, dining in the great outdoors is a terrific and time-tested way to enjoy the pleasant weather of spring or summer.But you need some way to carry your food, drink, and utensils to your destination, and that's where picnic baskets come into play. Sure, you could just toss your lunch into a bag or tote, or use a plastic cooler, but where's the fun in that? Whether you want traditional wicker or something a bit more modern, a good picnic basket signals that something special is on the agenda - It's not just eating outside, it's a celebration.
