Spending time outside no matter what the season is very important for me and my family. We are so fortunate that we have an abundance of parks and nature preserves just minutes away from our home. Sarah, our daughter, loves the outdoors and can easily spend hours at the playground. For variety, I take her to a different park, duck pond, or nature trail each day. We just started making a habit of enjoying lunch and snacks outdoors. It gives me an opportunity to relax and eat while we watch Sarah play, and it gives her the opportunity for a break as well.
The discovery of Trendy Picnic could not have come at a better time. As long as there is no snow on the ground, we are sitting outside in the afternoons reading a book, magazine, or writing. Trendy Picnic has a wide variety of picnic items, from totes, coolers, cheese boards, and bar sets in addition to their very own hand woven willow baskets. Whatever the occasion may be, Trendy Picnic has many options for gift giving this holiday season and for that special family outing. My family and I will be off on several excursions across the east coast within the coming months and into the spring and many of Trendy Picnic’s festive and fun products will come in handy.
I graciously received a Festival Woven Blanket and their Duet Wine and Cheese Tote in burgundy. The festive blanket instantly reminded me of growing up in New England among the fall foliage, crisp apples, and hot cocoa. This eye-catching blanket will be ideal all year round and is also great for cozying up with on your porch at sunset. Available in five colors, the compact Duet Tote features two insulated compartments for wine/champagne, an adjustable shoulder strap, and integrated pockets for storing the cheese knife, cutting board, and corkscrew.
“We wanted to provide an online store that wasn’t just another website, but rather a way for them to envision their picnic experience,” explains Co-Founder Eric Michael. “A lot of our design and creativity came from not just “picnic baskets” but everything there is to do with picnics. We have cheeseboards inside picnic baskets, cheeseboards that can stand on their own, wine totes, wine tote picnic baskets, barware, but barware that makes a statement – barware that turns heads.” Trendy Picnic is an all-inclusive stop to everything picnic, with a trendy twist. From an afternoon jaunt to the park with a bottle of wine and your favorite cheese selection to a full family beach outing with all-terrain adventure wagon for chilling beverages, a portable grill, and a foldable picnic table for the kids.
Favorites for this holidays season among their collection include the Hamilton Travel Bar, which is perfect for any holiday party; the Madison Table Top, an elegant piece of barware to impress your guests with your bar skills; and the Windsor Picnic Basket, one of the best high-end baskets that is affordable and has everything you need for the most elegant outdoor dining experience.
When asked about his favorite picnic destination, Michael named a park in Dallas called Robert – E – Lee park. “It’s right near a small pond and the rolling hills make a great landscape for a picnic scene.” For the ultimate dream picnic? “I would love to travel to Venice and have a picnic on a gondola!”
