At a Pic­nic

Martha Stewart Weddings - - STYLE -

Sunny af­ter­noons in the park. Evening fire­works shows. There will be plenty of oc­ca­sions to take your feast to go, and good pic­nicware can truly make the meal. What­ever you do, don’t for­get the corkscrew!

Com­mune with na­ture and then hy­drate with this teak­wood-painted stain­less steel wa­ter bot­tle by S’well ($45 for a 25-oz. bot­tle, gra­cioushome.com). Conty black flat­ware by Capdeco ($165 for a 5-piece set, gra­ciousstyle.com) and Faience Fleurs Isolees melamine din­ner plates ($12 each, john­de­rian .com) look as nice on the break­fast ta­ble as they do out­doors. Build your bas­ket around a good wood cut­ting board, like this cherry num­ber with a leather strap from Michele Var­ian ($155, michel­e­var­ian.com). For bas­ket pad­ding, nap­kins, and odd jobs, pack a cheer­ful set of Cher­ries dish tow­els ($18 each, fishs eddy.com). Enamel­ware tum­blers by Crow Canyon Home ($7 each, kolor­ful kitchen.com) bring un­break­able vin­tage charm. The L’Ate­lier Du Vin Oeno corkscrew wine opener ($130, wil­liams-sonoma.com) with a wal­nuthandled lever is com­pact and so well made, you may never need an­other. Ging­ham nap­kins, like these Fog Linen Work kitchen cloths in navy- and red-and­white checks ($15 each, shop-fog­li­nen.com), are a quin­tes­sen­tial pic­nic pick.
