Knowing that absolutely everything you’ll need for a proper picnic is ready and waiting in the front closet or back seat is the recipe for many springtime alfresco adventures. Pack good things to eat, run barefoot in the grass, look up and play cloud-shape games.🌾☁️

Choose one or two ways you’d like to carry everything to your picnic destination.

Think about your food picnic style and choose the best size and type of containers to have handy. Salads and grain bowls? Stock up on a few jars. Sandwiches and wraps? Go with a couple flat stainless steel containers. Quiches? You’ll love Pie Box.

Having a few fancy store-bought drinks in your pantry to grab and go is a great option, but when you’re in the mood to mix up something at home, use one of these to transport without spills.

For when you pack non-finger foods.

Come for the food, stay for the games.
