The Picnic: The City & The Country

When it comes to packing a picnic – the antidote is a no fuss approach. Toss some things in a bag (or basket), and be on your way, because let’s be honest – most picnics come by way of an impulse desire to be one with the great outdoors (whilst maybe enjoying a little nosh as well). Where you are picnicking might effect your packing list – for example, while in the city, a multipurpose straw tote and thermos will do the trick. The country yields a little more room for novelty items – that transport easily from house to yard, or car to meadow. Wherever, whenever, and however you are going to picnic – make sure to grab a comfy blanket and a few outdoor friendly accessories – and then, just enjoy!

And when it comes to city vs. country – we say, both.

The Edit: Father’s Day

Let’s face it . . . when it comes to Father’s Day, all dad really wants is to kick back and enjoy the summer sun. So, fire up the grill, stock up on outdoor tableware, and cue the lawn games. While you’re at it, bring a gift that he can enjoy the day of – because we all know “he doesn’t need anything”. Showing up with bbqing extras or a fun new game, is a sure way to win dad over on his special day.
