Celebrate the last warm days of the year with an al fresco meal — packed in a basket that takes care of the environment you’re hoping to enjoy.
Irish-born glassblower Simon Pearce and his company of designers and artisans have been Vermont fixtures since 1981.
Their Willow Picnic Basket ($295, including everything) is made from a renewable resource (that would be the willow) and is thoughtfully packed with plates (the Simon Pearce “Belmont” pattern in celadon), glasses (“Essex”), flatware (“Sutton”), and napkins — all of which will elevate any outing from ordinary to unforgettable. That’s a good thing, because come January, you’ll want to remember this day.
