Wee Find: New Liberty Picnic Baskets
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.
Just add a thermos, sandwiches and Victoria sponge to your Liberty picnic basket and you’re all set for your outdoor nature ramble.
