I've been wanting a picnic basket for awhile, but have decided to put my own together because the ones I've seen really aren't that cute.
Since it's before Halloween, I found all these skully goodies...or get 'em 1/2 off the day after (I couldn't wait that long) :)
THINGS YOU NEED for a basket for 2!:
â™¥PICNIC TOTE BAG/BASKET
â™¥2 PLASTIC WINE GLASSES
â™¥2 PLASTIC WATER GLASSES
â™¥2 PLASTIC DINNER PLATES
â™¥2 PLASTIC DESSERT/APPETIZER PLATES
â™¥2 SETS OF FLATWARE: KNIFE,FORK,SPOON
â™¥2 CLOTH NAPKINS
â™¥WINE BOTTLE OPENER
â™¥BAGS FOR DIRTY DISHES/TRASH
+ ADD DELICIOUS FOOD!
We have movie screenings at the cemetary during the summer, so this is perfect for that. Check out your area to see if you have drive-in movies or concerts in the park. You can also take it to the beach or mountain top and watch the sunset...or just go in the backyard!
CLOTH NAPKINS / KITCHEN TOWEL/BLANKET:
On your black cloth napkins/towel/blanket; you can either stencil in white fabric paint, use an iron-on skull patch or even embroider them to make them match your picnic set.
If you purchase knife, forks & spoons with the black handles, then you can stencil a small white skull on those as well...cute!
Purchase a black or stainless water bottle and paint the skull on it.
Don't forget to put the appropriate sealer over your skulls, so that they don't get scratched.
You can buy an insulated one or sew one with skully fabric.
If you sew one; you may want to leave room to insert a small ice pack to keep the vino chilled!
If you find some plastic black containers; you can put the skull on there as well.
Pack your goodies in a backpack, tote bag, picnic basket...whatever you want. Just make sure that you have enough room for your food.
I found that various appetizers are fun to have instead of a main course. It's easier to eat finger foods...that reminds me; you may want to include a small bottle of hand sanitizer or wet naps, as well ;)
