Remember Yogi Bear and his obsession with pilfering “pic-a-nic” baskets from the visitors to Jellystone Park while constantly exasperating and always eluding Park Ranger John Smith? Well Yogi and Boo-Boo had the right idea as the spring season gets under way and our thoughts turn to spending time outside. Whether you set your sites on a park, field or your back yard, check out these beautifully assembled picnic baskets from The Optima Company.
For more than 60 years, The Optima Company has been producing luxury fitted English picnic baskets outfitted with fine ceramics, cotton linens, high-grade cutlery and other accessories housed in hand-woven willow baskets made from sustainable farmed sources. Their baskets are available to serve two, four or six.
Here are a few temptations from Optima, but for more rustic chic examples, visit their web site at www.optimacompany.com.
