Picnic Hamper So you want to have a proper picnic. So what should you actually have to do so? First, you have to have the right picnic hamper. Traditionally, picnic hampers are made out of wicker and these are still the best bet if you want to have a proper picnic. Choose one that has, apart from a lovely design, secure compartments for your utensils and food to ensure safety while travelling and transporting to the picnic grounds. As for what kind of utensils should you have stored inside your hamper for a perfect picnic, here is a list of some essential items: 1. Plates – A proper picnic hamper must have plates. Ceramics are still the best in this field especially if you want to have a truly traditional feel to your fare. 2. Wine glasses – No picnic hamper is complete without its wine glasses and glass wine glasses are perfect for that refreshing drink on a grassy knoll. 3. Cutlery (forks, knives, spoons) – Stainless steel cutlery are essential to a proper picnic. Thus it is but basic for a picnic hamper to carry some in its bosom. 4. Corkscrew – It isn’t proper to open your wine bottle with the tip of a knife (and it will actually be difficult to do so). Thus, better pack yourself a corkscrew in the picnic hamper for those bottlepopping moments. 5. Salt and Pepper Shakers – To complete the dining experience and for those unexpected seasoning needs, your picnic hamper must contain these essential condiments set. 6. Food Container – Of course, where do you put the food in the picnic hamper but in food containers? Just make sure that your food containers have secure lids so as not to worry about spills during the trip. 7. Cold Bag – For food and drink that need to be kept cold, a proper picnic hamper must contain a cold bag. With a cold bag, the right temperature is ensured for maximum enjoyment of food and drink during the picnic. Now that you know the basic hamper items for a proper picnic, think of the food to bring, the people to invite, and the best place to chill, relax, and have that lovely picnic amidst the sun and sky.
