Essential accessories for keeping the picnic-chic feeling going well into Fall.
The word picnic comes from the French “pique-nique,” a term referring to a Middle Ages practice of eating an elegant meal outdoors. It used to be an interlude from hunting, but later evolved into the al fresco respite from kitchen tables that we love today. And our hunting is now just a bit more focused on this stylish gear-to-go.
