This week's KD Finds is inspired by one of our favorite lazy day activities - picknicking! Here, we share our five stylish picnic essentials.
Kate Spade Pack A Picnic Picnic Basket
Wicker baskets can be unwieldy and allow sand and pests to get inside, so we're in awe of this cheeky vinyl version from Kate Spade. It's roomy enough to fit all your finds from the farmer's market, and the leather trim and golden zipper hardware allow you to stow snacks in style.
We love the unexpected details and casual elegance found in designer Michael Aram's new line of affordable tableware called MADHOUSE. Aram is known for bringing the natural world into his design of tabletop and serving pieces, and these twig-shaped plastic utensils would fit right in an outdoor setting.
Bring your homemade pickles and preserves to your next outdoor outing in this beautiful reclaimed-redwood caddy. We love how you can personalize it with fun messages (perfect for a picnic table centerpiece) or jot down jar contents for easy organization.
We tested this knife on a watermelon and were impressed with how little effort it took to cut through rinds. The stainless steel blade is serrated and has a non-stick coating, allowing it to easily cut and release fruit. It comes with a sheath for safe storage in your picnic basket or kitchen drawer.
This week's KD Finds pays homage to one of our favorite lazy day activities - picnicking! With the warm weather upon us, we think there are few pleasures better than spending a day lounging and dining al fresco.
Wherever you choose to make your getaway - at the park, by the pool, on a sandy beach or in your backyard - a blanket buffet can be a relaxing escape from the everyday. And with International Picnic Day coming up on June 18th, there's no better excuse to celebrate this much-loved summer excursion. Pack your favorite eats, grab some friends and head toward your favorite spot - and with our picnic essentials in tow, you'll be sure to host in style.
