Outdoor Dining Made Easier.

Sick of having to run back inside your house when eating on your porch or in your backyard because you forgot something?  Tired of having to make multiple trips back and forth carrying arm-loads of dishes, seasonings, and napkins?

Trrrrrry buying a cute (and huge) picnic basket!

Buy a big basket and shove it full of paper plates, napkins, and plastic utensils for eating around a fire or the barbeque.  Or do as I have, and hit up the thrift shops for some cheap (but still gorgeous) vintage dishes.  I bought up some mismatched forks, knives, cups, and plates from a thrift shop that I keep in a giant basket on a shelf beside the barbeque.  That way when it's time to eat, all the dishes are handy.  We also have all our bbqing spices and sauces in a basket that's easy to grab when it's time to eat outside.  You can also shove in your hot dog supplies if you have a bonfire pit like we do.  As I said, this basket needs to be HUGE!

You could also line the basket with some summery material for added protection and cuteness.
