The text message comes at 10-ish in the morning: “How ’bout a hike and a picnic?” By 10:30-ish, you’ve splashed water on your face, combed your hair, fed the dog, and thrown two sandwiches and two drinks into your Canasta Wicker Basket, a picnic basket that is perfect on-the-go. The Canasta picnic basket is easy and elegant, with a fully-removable, customizable flat lid that can double as a surface for plates and drinks. Inside, a removable polyester/cotton lining absorbs any mess and is easy to clean. The Canasta’s woven willow body sports a pleasant two-strand basket weave that’s easy on the eyes. You head off to pick up the sender of that text with the picnic set, and embark on an amazing afternoon that ends at…night-ish.
