Spring picnic: biodegradable cutlery and elegant vintage baskets
Informal and colorful, the perfect picnic is characterized by simplicity
Spring is coming. A pleasant picnic under the warm sun rays is the best way to celebrate this season. Yu just have to lay down your quilt and fill your basket with delicacies. Among green and design objects, and some tips about recipes, here is the chic-nic!
Which are the necessary tools? Let’s start from the basket. Anyone has his or her own style: the classic wicker hamper for the most romantic ones, with a pastel lining; a modern and light thermal backpack, the ideal solution for those looking for convenience; eco-friendly and hand-made, with a raw cotton lining for those caring for nature; super organized for wine lovers, with a thermally insulated part for transporting the favorite bottle.
What about tableware? Disposable and biodegradable is better, like maize tableware. If you choose ultra-chic and design cutlery like the products by Wasare, elegance is served! For porcelain lovers, the Japanese bowls by Anthropologie are a cheerful and colored solution.
Some rules for snacks and food: no dishes with sauces or liquid toppings, they could leak and stain clothes; no food requiring the use of a stable support surface. Finger food is ok, it can be eaten with your fingers or using a spork (half fork, half spoon).
In case you cannot go out-of-town, you could try a urban picnic: Vivibistrot offers deluxe picnic menus (basket and quilt included) to be tasted wherever you wish in the greenery of the park of the Doria Pamphili Villa in Rome; California Bakery in Milan can prepare a Brunch picnic basket for you (with a straw basket and cushions for rent) in the Sant’Eustorgio Park.
