At For the Love of Wallpaper, we have several picnic time border patterns because May officially kicks off the Picnic Season. We are just back from London where we were sourcing some smashing new patterns for our in-store selection of wallcovering. We couldn’t resist a stop at Fortnum and Mason’s, one of the Queen’s favorite stores (per the tour bus commentary) where we saw some wonderful examples of picnic baskets–or in British parlance–hampers.
There were traditional wicker baskets outfitted with all the trimmings and more casual canvas picnic backpacks with the F&M logo.
|This wonderful wicker picnic basket speaks to pure British elegance and charm. It evokes memories of a bygone era when picnics meant more than hamburgers and hot dogs.|
|This picnic backpack is a contemporary version of the wicker original and features ease, comfort and efficiency. It contains all the fixings but can easily be carried on one’s back.|
