Vintage French Basket ♥

Hi Everyone
Happy Monday
This weekend our family went on a picnic with friends
at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis club
complete with pink lemonade, delicious bbq chicken and deviled eggs
 getting all of the food together
I realized we didn't have a traditional picnic basket
it broke on our last picnic
 we have baskets everywhere in our home 
so the hunt was on for the right basket for the job

This vintage white basket is

This one is a nice size and shape

this Nantucket basket

A bunch of baskets at the ready in the dining room
one with the tag still attached... oops

Here is the basket that worked the best
It is one of my ~favorites~ a vintage french basket it has a wooden bottom
 a great handle
worked perfect for the tall lemonade bottles 
it even looks cute with magazines
Even though its not a traditional picnic basket it worked like a charm
A wonderful reason to have another picnic soon
