Picnic Baskets For Romantic Picnics For Two



If you are looking for a romantic wedding gift for the bride and groom nothing could be better than either of  these attractive, well designed picnic baskets designed for the bride and groom to take on a 'date' after they get married.  The items can be purchased at http://www.cooking-entertaining-gifts.com/.   The top basket is meant for a special wine and cheese picnic so it comes complete with 2 handblown wine glasses (8 oz.), 1 nickel-plated bottle stopper with real cork, 1 stainless steel waiter-style corkscrew, 1 hardwood cutting board (6 x 6"), 1 stainless steel cheese knife with wooden handle, and 2 napkins. 

The  2nd basket called the Piccadilly Picnic Basket is reminiscent of simpler times, when picnics were grand affairs and life was slower so you had the time to enjoy them to the fullest. This red and white plaid willow basket measures 16" long and has a picnic service for two. Included are 2 plates (melamine, 8", white), 2 wine glasses, 2 sets of cutlery, and 1 waiter-style corkscrew. It features a matching roll-up flatware pouch.

Both of these baskets offer the bride and groom a chance to slow down and take the time to enjoy each other.

  7. I wish I had a bigger one, mine is a set for two, which is romantic, but not as practical as a larger set. I guess I'd better get them for friends so mine works for my fiance and I and they all have their own!
