Gourmet Picnic Baskets For Family Picnics or Romantic Picnics for 2

With winter hitting us hard in the state of Pennsylvania, I long for warmer temperatures when I can get outside and be with my family. One of the things we enjoy doing in the spring and summer months is going outdoors for picnics.

When we go on picnics...sometimes it's a family affair and sometimes it's just a romantic picnic for two! Planning your own family or romantic picnic is not hard to do but you will need some affordable quality picnic supplies.

When I think of picnic baskets...I think of a nice large basket that is easy to carry and one that can carry everything inside it that I will need for a family picnic. I love purchasing and using lined wicker baskets just for this task! You will need a good sturdy basket to hold all of your items which should include your picnic cloth, dishes, food, beverages and utensils.

When hubby and I go out for just a romantic picknic for two, we sometimes use our family picnic basket but most times since it is just the two of us, we will use our picnic backpack. What I love about picnic backpacks is that they are great if we are going to be doing a lot of hiking, backpacking or walking because they are lighter weight and can be carried on our backs which leaves us hands-free (great for those who want to hold hands *wink*). I love going out with hubby for a nice romantic picnic!
