A-tisket, a-tasket, a lovely picnic basket (part III)

You need more than recipes for a truly successful picnic—you also need the right hardware. Of course you'll want something unbreakable, but disposable plates, utensils, and cups are so passé, not to mention un-eco-friendly and, em, a bit tacky.

For serving up your delectable edibles, allow us to recommend these square melanine plates from Crate & Barrel, the perfect style statement that's also perfectly practical.

And unless you plan on serving finger food exclusively, you'll need some coordinating utensils, like Preserve flatware, also from Crate & Barrel.

Then of course, there are beverages to consider. We love these Learning to Fly Acrylic Tumblers by Marimekko from for serving up your scrumptious aqua fresca di frutta or other refresher. And if vino is on the menu, you'll want some elegant but sturdy stemware, like the Pin Wheel Acrylic Wine Glass by Precidio.

And there you have it, ladies: all the hardware you need for a relaxed picnic that still has a sense of style. Stay tuned for more fabulous tips to come!
