Spring is here, time to pack your picnic basket


The days are getting longer and the grass is growing green, which means it’s time to grab your buddies, pack your basket, and head out for a lovely spring picnic. We’ve put together a list of essentials—from cheese sets to the picnic basket itself—we’ve got everything you need to have a delightful spring picnic.



Kitchen shelves with linens, vintage French pottery, rattan wrapped cups holding Laguiole utensils, and clear glassware.


Step 1: Raid your pantry for linens 


Traditionally crafted Thieffry Belgian linen tablecloth can double as a picnic blanket, and our woven striped napkins are perfect for wrapping up some cheese or fruit.

Step 2: Grab your mini Laguiole cheese sets


These minis are perfect for lunch on-the-go. Now you’ve got your hard cheese, preserves, salami, and more sorted, it’s time to focus on glassware!

Step 3: Pick out some cute and durable glasses 


No one likes drinking out of a plastic cup. Elevate your picnic with real glasses, made less breakable by the adorable rattan or seagrass wrapping
