I adore picnics. There is just something about eating out there in that fresh air! I want the adorable blanket on the ground, the beautiful wicker basket, the trendy mason jar drinks with striped paper straws in them – the whole clichéd thing. It just makes me smile, so I want it all. Picnics on the beach, at the park, or even just in my own backyard, I love them all. These picnic basket essentials from some of my favorite bloggers will get you all ready for your next fun foray into outdoor eating too.

Spice things up a bit with this delightful Spicy Coleslaw.
We adore this Bacon Cheddar Macaroni Salad and go through bowls full of it nearly every week during the summer!
And even the veggie-haters in our house go back for seconds of this Broccoli Cauliflower Salad.
Finally, make a Reusable Sandwich Wrap for each person in the family. They’re pretty and eco-friendly!
