At the core of any great picnic is fantastic food. But if you wish to take picnicking to the next level you’ll also need quality picnic supplies. Some picnic supplies and accessories are classics, and if brought along they’ll give the occasion a pleasant quintessential picnic feel, the sort you see in old romantic movies. A lovely wicker basket and a tartan blanket just screams traditional picnic.
