Tools That Rule

It’s so last century to take disposables into the wild. Stock up on break-resistant dishware, acrylic glasses and reusable containers. Get extra fancy with metal flatware and cloth napkins—you can bring them home to wash. Plus, don’t forget your good knife, corkscrew, sunscreen, bug spray and ice packs.

Everything tastes better outdoors, but there’s no reason to make it complicated. Bring sandwiches or keep it simple with an assortment of fruits, cheeses, meats, chocolates, breads and serve them on an attractive wood cutting board.

First rule of the great outdoors? Stay hydrated. Whether or not you bring your favorite bottles of wine (highly recommended), pack lots of water. Mix up some mocktails and bring some lemonade, sodas and flavored seltzers to keep the fun flowing.

Comfort is key to lingering longer at your al fresco affair. Pass on the picnic table and set up shop on a blanket. You can throw in some pillows for something soft to lean on as you recline. Mix and match patterns for a boho look, or keep it chic with a more monochrome palette.
