Build a
dining room

Pick a dry, flat area, then spread a rug over the grass to define your picnic space. Use large lanterns to mark off your "walls." Big pillows can stand in for chairs.


Layer on “indoor” surprises

Make your guests feel special by setting the table with dining room-worthy dinnerware and flatware, plus coordinating linens and decorative napkin rings.

Our Table in a Bag is just the right height for picnicking. It’s made from FSC-certified mahogany and rolls into its own bag for easy carrying. Place a few in a row to seat larger groups.


Keep the
menu simple

The setting is the real focus of your picnic, so the food can be easy. Encourage guests to relax over cheese platters, big salads, and good bread and butter.



Cocktails and shared plates will be clinked and passed. Serve them in copper mugs and on wooden trays, natural materials that are durable but look polished and on-trend.


Go overboard
on candlelight

Mix votives with large and small hurricanes on the table to give your picnic a festive glow.
