  1. Wee Find: New Liberty Picnic Baskets

    Liberty print picnic basket, from Liberty.

    Fancy a picnic with Theodora, Betsy or Wiltshire? Liberty’s most popular floral prints have gone alfresco with a splendid new picnic collection, part of the fast-growing Flowers of Liberty range.

    The new hero of the range is the wicker picnic basket, handcrafted in Somerset with locally-grown willow by a fourth generation family of artisans. The basket features an aged gold finish, leather belt fastenings and Liberty print detailing, offering a pretty alternative to Fortnum & Mason’s luxury wicker hampers.

    If the £295 price tags drives you to lashings of ‘hard’ ginger beer, you might like to upgrade your current picnic set with the more affordable melamine Liberty print beakers (£5.95) and matching melamine plates (£9.95 each), also available in Betsy, Theodora and Wiltshire.

    Complete your floral picnic set with matching Liberty print napkins – a pack of paper napkins will set you back £5.95; or you can get a set of four cotton Liberty print napkins for £39.95.
