Finally! After obsessing over my baskets (read Diary of a Picnic Basket) for the better part of the summer, we recently went on another road trip up North and got to put them to use. Preparing a picnic, like preparing an outfit, is best when it’s effortlessly–but not haphazardly–put together. Thankfully, even though weather forecasts predicted thunderstorms in Baguio, we were greeted with sunshine and cool weather for our baskets’ first foray.

For the simplest picnic with no cooking required, I packed cold cuts, cheese, fruit, a crusty baguette, biscuits, and some drinks–absolutely fuss-free! Oh, and linen table napkins, just because 😉 We also had our summer playlist and a deck of cards as we lazed about and enjoyed the weather (read Tips On a Picnic).
