It's not every meal that we choose to go on an adventure to the outdoors, so when we do, we make sure that we're fully equipped and prepared to do it up right. As it continues to grow warmer outside, we're itching to go on a picnic date and set up beautiful spread. Here's the swoon-worthy gear we plan to make it happen with.

It’s that time of year again: the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the farmers’ market is bumping. What do all these shifts in nature all point to you do? GO ON A PICNIC, of course! The key to any successful picnic outing lies not only in the bites and drinks that you bring, but, arguably more important than the refreshments, is the gear and equipment that support the entire experience. Preparation is key, but stylish, chic accessories are a must for such an Instagrammable set-up. To marry both of these needs, we gathered our favorite practical picnic essentials that just so happen to be pretty darn cute, if we do say so ourselves.
