my picnic basket

I've been wanting a picnic basket for  awhile now. The boy kept saying I was silly to get one and yes, I do admit that it's a little old fashioned but hey, who doesn't like the idea of a picnic? And like most boys, they say one thing and do another - guess what the boy got me for Valentine's Day this year?

This picnic basket set has glass plates and cups. The wicker itself is quite delicate but I love how authentic this basket is, complete with buckle straps to close.

Prawn, Spinach & Garlic Aioli Baguettes for lunch.

Fresh homemade lemonade to accompany the baguettes.

Blueberry with Orange Juice jellies & Strawberry with Cranberry Juice jellies to complete lunch.

A big thumbs up to the boy for preparing the picnic (I was quite stoked to find that he'd prepared everything himself - so much for him saying that he can't cook!) There were a lot of baguettes which could've fed four quite comfortably and as insistent at the boy was for me to eat up, we couldn't quite finish them.  It was a shame that the weather wasn't great to go outdoors but the picnic was just as nice indoors. Definitely more picnics coming up soon!

I love picnics! But it almost always seems to rain when I plan them =( The husband got us a backpack picnic set a few years ago and I do think it's time to break it out again.

Kudos to the boy for making all the food - looks scrumptious!
