Perfect Picnic Checklist

No picnic is complete without these essentials:

  1. One gingham picnic blanket (six-feet-square, at least)

  2. One wicker picnic basket

  3. Two champagne flutes, glass, not plastic (but please, not your finest crystal today)

  4. A bottle of champagne, and a bag of ice to chill it

  5. Two white linen napkins

  6. A selection of three fine cheeses: one sharp, one creamy and one blue

  7. One fresh-baked baguette

  8. Grapes, one perfectly pickable bunch

  9. Utensils and cutting board for cheeses and baguette

  10. A person who will appreciate the moment as much as you
