Basket Case

If your idea of heaven is an afternoon on the Great Lawn with a big lunch and a bottle of wine, these picnic baskets will take you there.


Outdoor exercise is fun, but sprawling out on the grass, sipping wine, can be pure bliss. Up for a picnic? Pack yours in one of these baskets.

  • Bed Bath & Beyond's model ($29.99) comes loaded with plates, cups, and cutlery for four.

  • Broadway Panhandler's ($89.95) has the same, and also a blanket.

  • For fancier dining, we like Pier 1 Imports' suitcase, which comes with stainless flatware, china, and wineglasses packed in their own matching case ($60) and an easy-to-tote version with a shoulder strap ($40).

  • Perfect for purists: the Terence Conran Shop's simple style with a leather clasp ($49).

Bed Bath & Beyond, 620 Sixth Ave., near 18th St. (212-255-3550), 410 E. 61st St. (646-215-4702); Broadway Panhandler, 477 Broome St. (212-966-3434); Pier 1 Imports (; the Terence Conran Shop, 407 E. 59th St. (212-755-9079).
