I don't really like the basket already filled with picnic supplies because they are really expensive and I would rather be able to a little more creative with what I put in there. I love this Avignon Picnic Basket from Crate and Barrel. I think the baskets that have the double flap are the best.
The only problem with this basket is that I would have no where to put it in our townhouse. I am seriously out of room! I guess I will have to wait for this basket until I am in a bigger place. I am really digging this Ascot Collapsible Empty Picnic Basket Cooler that I found at Picnic World. I love the apple green color.
2. Food and Drink
Bento boxes are my new obsession. I really want to get one to bring my lunch to work instead of all these different containers. (I also found that with the containers I have from home, I sometimes pack bigger portions than I need and eat it all while I am working since I am not paying attention. Have you heard of all those people that lost weight when they started using bentos for lunch?) But what is really great is that they have bigger bento boxes for easy transport for picnic food. I love the brightly colored three tier bento boxes from Plastica. So many pretty colors, it is hard to choose. But I guess if I am going to try and match it with my apple green basket, I would choose this one:
Naturally, with my obsession with fall and trees, I told her I would climb trees in my wedding dress and she can help me tear my dress apart if she wants. I used to love playing in the woods as a a kid and this just seemed like it would be so much FUN!! Luckily, we get back from our Jamaican weddingmoon at the end of October - the perfect time to prance around the woods.
I love those fall photo shoots in Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W. You know the ones. Where the models are traipsing around the woods in ridiculously fluffy ball gowns. And then they stop to rest in that forest green velvet chair that just happened to be there. Obsessed! (This is basically the idea I had in my head for the "old" wedding. Remember my colors of chocolate brown, cream, and olive green?)
My dress is kind of summery so I think I will have to "autumnize" it. Maybe a faux fur bolero, a crazy ton of draping pearls, and some cute fall pumps?? I guess I have some time to figure it out.
Here are some pictures from a TTD Raye has done before:
This shirt is from darkcycleclothing.
This beautiful watercolor painting is from WatercolorByMuren.
I am pretty sure I need a set of these cards from letterpress.
How cool is this vintage decorative bike from Brockway Betty?
