Picnic Basket Giveaway! (Closed)


picnic basket giveaway

This weekend I got to go on a picnic with my sister and my boyfriend in Central Park in New York City.  We stopped in New York to visit friends after my cousin's amazing wedding, and each of us picked an activity we wanted to do while we were there.  N requested a picnic in Central Park.  So we stopped at a grocery store on the Upper West Side, picked up cheeses, dried salami, a baguette, some fruit, and a prepared salad and parked ourselves on a rock in the middle of the park.  It was lovely! 

Since we still have a good chunk of summer left and plenty of weekends to have picnics, I thought I'd share with you my new favourite thing - a pretty and functional Vivid Allon picnic basket.  We took ours with us on the long drive down to Philadelphia and New York.  We packed it with snacks for the ride and then took it along on our NYC picnic. It folds up nicely to store or could potentially even fit in a suitcase.  The basket is more functional than some picnic baskets, in that it can be used for going to the farmers' market or grocery store.  You'll have to pack your own plates and utensils if you are going on a picnic though.  The basket we are giving away is the Blue Floral Print (brown with blue flowers), not the one in the picture above.  Please share the giveaway with your friends!  Thank you!

  11. Nothing is better than going to the shore at low tide and catching Dungeness Crab, cleaning and boiling before you chill the remains of claws and body on ice. Yummy with cocktail sauce on the picnic table.

  16. My favorite would be burgers and macaroni or pasta salad. If there is no bbq at the picnic, I would agree with salami and cheese with a nice crusty bread. I would throw in some peaches also. Nothing like a great peach in the summer.

    PS...since I am the other K in the kitchen exclude me from the drawing.

    Love you K!

  29. Favorite summer picnic food: my bf's chicken pasta salad - travels well in single serving sized containers in an iced cooler - just find a picnic spot, grab a fork and eat! Goes great with ice cold sun tea! Happy Summer!
