  • Margaret

    Eeek! What a fun giveaway. I am in LOVE with the geos towel. I’d pack it while on a picnic in City Park in New Orleans – a super short walk from my house 🙂

  • Love your picnic supplies as facny picnicing is right up my alley! I would choose the Geos tea towel, love that one. My favorite picnic spot is out at my parents farm near the pond or somewhere along the river in a nice secluded spot.

  • I am in love with the green cross tea towel!! I love your whole cabin and your new line is amazing!!
    My favorite picnic is across the street at the lake with all of my kids and my hubby!

  • Kristina

    Geos, and there’s a vineyard out off 66 in Virginia that is perched at the top of a pretty huge hill, with spectacular views. Perfect picnic location.

  • The stripes tea towel is calling to me! My favorite picnic spot in Portland is at the Pittock Mansion…

  • Mary

    I’m looking forward to collecting your line for my home over time. I think I’d start with the triangles tea towel for a picnic in Brooklyn’s prospect park during a summer concert.

  • Tyler Marie

    I love your blog and the amazing new products you launched on A Sunny Afternoon. I am smitten with the Tea Towel TRIANGLES and think it’d be a perfect punch of black and white to the stunning basket. (I’d beach cruise from my apartment in Santa Monica via the Strand to arrive in Venice Beach)

  • Oooo!!!! What an awesome giveaway! I love your picnic basket!! It’s a total classic. Picking one of your designs is hard, love them all. But I think my favorite is the green cross. My favorite picnic spot is Osterman beach up on the north side of Chicago in the Edgewater neighborhood where I live. Nothing better than sitting out by Lake Michigan!! Congrats on the success of your new store!

  • Sam Solis

    I love, love, love the cross mint tea towel. One of my favorite colors.

    My girlfriends and I made a 2013 goal list to help us achieve some big to-dos but also to enjoy life’s sweet moments. One of mine is to take a picnic this summer and I haven’t had a chance to make it happen yet. I’m hoping your gorgeous basket is what makes it get crossed off the 2013 list.

    Thanks for all the beauty you bring to the world. X.

    P.S. Following A Sunny Afternoon on FB. 🙂

  • Sam Solis

    P.S.S. My favorite picnic spot is the Arb in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

  • Ariba

    I would have to say the Geos tea towel would be my pick. It’s got the perfect pops of color to complement the earthy basket. And it’s just super cute!

  • Janet

    Love your blog and love the serving boards I’ve already ordered!! The mint cross tea towel and picnic basket are next on my wish list for a perfectly perfect sunny picnic date just about anywhere. Thanks!

  • Mary

    I would choose the geometric tea towel and head out to my grandparents’ olive orchard on a hot summer day and find a nice shady and secluded spot

  • I’m in love with the aqua and plus sign one! It is my logo after all 😉 and to have a picnic is on my summer to do list so I need to get on that!

  • Alex

    Although they are all so cute, the stripes would be perfect with this basket. I can’t just choose one picnic spot as my favorite…so I’ll share both;) One of my favorites is Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point,Califiornia. There is this huge grassy hill overlooking the ocean. Surfers, families, runners, dogs, and cute littles are all over but somehow it’s so peaceful, especially at sunset. My other favorite spot is in Des Moines, Washington right at the waterfront. You are surronded by water, sand, grass, forest, and wildflowers all at the same time. It’s magical, romantic, and absolutely gorgeous.

  • Dani Sigel

    I adore the mint cross tea towel. I’m currently having quite the love affair with all-things mint green! As far as picnic’ing, Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea on the North Shore of Massachusetts is a glorious spot. The beach is actually named for the sound the sand makes when squished between your toes. Cheers!

  • Kim

    Love the mint cross tea towel. Can’t wait to picnic with my little family!

  • congratulations on the launch! i absolutely adore the green cross tea towel. it is so bright & cheery. i’d bring my basket to an outdoor NYC movie night on the pier, near the hudson river or in bryant park.

  • The geos will match my dallas/southwestern setting perfectly! the basket is really stinkin cute – great giveaway!

  • Veronica

    I hope I win this! I own the arrow cutting board and I LOVE it! simple and beautiful, adds so much character to my kitchen. I like the black and white geometric tea towel. My favorite place for a picnic is in Monterey by the beach. Brings me back to my first dates with my husband, and now I need to go back with our first child.

  • Jordann Tatum

    My favorite tea-towel is the Green Cross one.

    My favorite place to picnic is at One Mile in Bidewell Park in Chico, CA, by the swimming area. There is a lot of shade and comfy grass and benches, and it’s easy to hop right in the water because the river has been given a concrete pool-addition. There are a lot of casual trails around this stretch of park, secluded parts of the river, and blackberries that you can pick.

  • My favorite tea towel is definitely the mint cross pattern. It’s lovely. And my favorite spot to picnic is in the Law Quad at UM (in Ann Arbor).

  • Ah! I’m obsessed with your stuff and am desperate to own it! Unfortunately I’m from Canada so your site continues to be a big ole tease :(. Just out of curiosity, if I offered to pay for shipping would you consider allowing a Canadian to contribute to the contest! Ha! #desperate!

    Just in case I would totally choose the lines tea towel! And my absolute favourite place to picnic would be at Third Beach in Vancouver overlooking the ocean. Pure bliss!

    • Hi Allessia,
      haha sure! if your name gets picked I’ll send you a paypal invoice for the extra shipping. Also, A Sunny Afternoon ships to Canada now! It is just a bit more expensive. Thanks for entering. 🙂

  • I love the striped towels! The mixture of handpainted lines and such a geometric print is fantastic. And I’d take them up to Will Rogers State Park for a picnic and a polo match!

  • Are you kidding me?! They’re all beautiful! How does one pick a favorite? The Geos one is probably my favorite. I’ve been hunting for a picnic basket all summer…this one is fantastic!

    A favorite picnic spot? The back of my husband’s old pick up truck. 🙂

  • Jill

    Ooh the Geos tea towel is right up my alley! I’d take them to the beach in Amagansett with my little boy and husband!

  • Kirsten

    I’d for sure pair the stripes tea towel with this, and I’d take it picnicking along the lakeshore on the Leelanau peninsula, while I’m in my home state of Michigan, or I would take it to Kua Bay, a sandy little beach 15 minutes from my house in Hawaii.

  • The geos tea towel is my absolute favorite!!! I would take the picnic basket and tea towel to my favorite hiking spot in San Bernadino!

  • ashley

    oh i’m pretty sure i’m in love with those geometric towels- but all of it is totally swoon worthy.

    + right now, our favorite picnic spot is in our new back yard, with our 18 month old + 2 boxers (one of which we’re about to lose to kidney failure.) we’re soaking up all of our moments with her while we can 🙂

  • Erin

    I love the Geos tea towel, I would use it at my favorite picnic spot, right on the beach in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL with friends.

  • Choosing a favorite tea towel has been the hardest decision I’ve made today BUT I finally decided the Geos towel would add a great pop of color since we like to have picnics on the roof!

    This is the first time I’ve visited your site and I’m a huge fan of your products – beautiful design and imagery too. [PS: I don’t have a personal Facebook so I liked your page from my brand page, Stately Sandwiches]

  • The mint green tea towel would coordinate with my bright color picnic blanket! All I need is a basket to perfect the scene at Sheep’s Meadow in Central Park!

  • Michelle B

    It’s so hard to choose a favorite, but I think at this moment it is the Mint Cross towel. My favorite picnic spot is at Lake Wenatchee in Washington State.

  • Angel

    My favorite tea towel is Geos and my favorite picnic spot is at the top of Dolores Park in San Francisco.

  • Chrissy Larson

    I would definitely pair up my picnic basket with the stripes tea towel. The pattern is too cute and my favorite location to picnic is in the sunny elm creek park in maple grove MN. Surrounded by greenery, it’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy each others company!

  • So hard to pick, but I love the green crosses!

  • i love all the tea towels but if i HAVE to choose only one, it’d the the green crosses!

  • Ooooh, the green cross tea towel is just divine – that colour is my absolute fave! I’ve recently moved to San Francisco so I don’t have a picnicking place just yet… but if I won the picnic basket I would sure put it to good use finding a favourite spot! 😉

  • Oh my, I dream in picnics. What a great giveaway! That basket will take my picnicking to a professional level, I need it. 🙂 My fav tea towel is your green cross one. Too cute. My fav picnic spot is through the last cave at El Matador Beach in Malibu. It’s wonderful.

  • Mary Ann

    Oh, how honored I would be to win this picnic basket. I believe that the green cross tea towel is my favorite one to match up with the picnic basket because it reminds me of my State of Vermont–The Green Mountain State. I would pack up the basket with Vermont cheeses and crackers and fruit and head to the mountains and meadows and delight in Summertime. Loving the basket and picnics and tea towels!

  • What an amazing giveaway! I love the entire line (and you too) so all the tea towels are fantastic, but I’m especially fond of the GEOS.

  • My absolute favorite Tea Towel by A Sunny Afternoon is the MINT CROSS. I love it to match how I see the sky and the water in my chosen picnic spot at the Mountain View campsite in Acadia National Park, Maine. Those color patterns warm my heart and brighten my spirit! [Thank you to A Sunny Afternoon for making such gorgeous items with love!]

  • Congrats on your launch, Sarah! Its a tie between the Green Crosses and the Geos tea towel. I know exactly where I would take the picnic basket, to Alamo Square Park near my house in San Francisco – also the home of the Painted Ladies, aka the Full House houses.

  • I adore the GEO Tea Towels! My favorite place to picnic is a local, slow going park named Abercrombie Park in St. Petersburg, Fl. I also love the beach for picnics but that doesn’t work out too well anymore with children who attract sand and seagulls.

  • Jessica W

    That is an adorable picnic basket, i’d love to have it! I think my favorite tea towel pattern is the mint cross, with the geos pattern coming in at a close second. But then any pattern would pair well with that simple and classy basket.

  • love the crosses green towels!!! and enjoy picnics in my backyard with my mini me 🙂

  • Love the GEOS towel! It’d be perfect for a picnic!

  • I would pair it with the Mint Cross tea towel! as well as my small arrow serving board that came in the mail a couple weeks ago. I love it!
    My favorite picnic spot is in Buffalo Park in Flagstaff. The tall grass, sunflowers, and pine trees would just be perfect with A Sunny Afternoon’s products.
    Congratulations on the success of your line!

    just liked A Sunny Afternoon on facebook 🙂

  • Jennifer Gibson

    A new discovery for me…A Sunny Afternoon! I adore this blog all ready!!

    I am smitten with the Tea Towel STRIPES for it’s playful, whimsical qualities. I think it would be the perfect interior accent with the cool leather straps. 🙂

    My favorite place to picnic is anywhere on the beach with my dear friends and family with me.

  • What a beautiful shop! The bright yellow striped towels would match perfectly with the basket. My favorite picnic spot is my cottage’s backyard 😉

  • Miranda

    I absolutely adore your Triangles Tea Towel it is my favorite! I especially am loving monochromatic these days and they’d go so well with the black and white checker of the picnic basket interior fabric!

    My favorite place to picnic is actually a new discovery — Lake Manawa State Park in Iowa. I live in Omaha, NE so this is literally 10 minutes from home and it is SO beautiful!

    PS: I do ‘like’ you on Facebook 🙂

  • Pamela

    What an amazing giveaway! I’ve liked ASA on FB and if I were lucky enough to win, I’d pick your pretty striped napkins to take with on a picnic.

    My favorite place to picnic is in my backyard! It’s green, relaxing, and close enough to my fridge for a quick beverage refill!

  • Katelyn

    Even though I would love to buy up your whole shop, the Green Cross Tea Towel is a definite favorite!

    My favorite picnic spot is currently on my rooftop. Finding green space in New York City can be challenging, so I like to head up to the roof and drown myself in the overwhelming feeling of being so small. Staring out at the expansive skyline helps to put things in perspective. As for picnic food — black and white cookies are all you need!

  • Margot C

    I simply adore the tea towel called “stripes”.
    Naturally I like you on fb.

    My favorite place to picnic is a place that I can not go now and may never go again; the levee by the Mississippi River near Uptown in New Orleans (my long lost home!)

  • Katelyn

    Have been wanting A Sunny Afternoon picnic basket with Geo tea towels to take to Montauk, NY ever since you’ve launched – just the perfect style.

  • Great giveaway! I would pair the Mint Cross Tea Towel with the Picnic basket, and my favorite picnic spot is at one of the local parks here in Winter Park, Florida, which is right by our local farmers market!

  • diane ho

    i would jump up and down to win picnic basket. i love the dots napkin and hope to use for picnic in my backyard!

  • Consider yourself liked! I liked both A Sunny Afternoon and Smitten Studio too (didn’t realize I hadn’t done so already!). My favorite is the green cross tea towel. It’s so fresh and cute! And my favorite spot to picnic is actually up in the mountains after a hard hike–but you can’t really bring a basket up there so I will say the beach 🙂

  • Lauren

    geez, can I choose them all!?! If I had to choose I would pair the mint green cross tea towels with the picnic basket because I think the mix of colors and patterns would be a funky and sweet juxtaposition. I live in Oklahoma and thursday nights during the summer they play movies in an park downtown. The basket and tea towels would be the perfect accessory for homemade italian sandwiches and fizzy drinks on the lawn!

  • I love the “geos” tea towel (though- it was a hard choice!) i love color and pattern- It matches my Fiesta collection! We mainly picnic at St Augustine Beach, our favorite is Anastasia State Park where we like to camp and ride our bikes to the beach both day and night. I’m looking to replace a lost picnic basket (you don’t wanna know what became of it) and your products are lovely! I can’t wait to share them with friends and family. Best to you and yours! xoxo- Darby

  • I love the mint cross tea towel, but those striped napkins will definitely find a home in my linen collection. I love to picnic, and my favorite place in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont in Paris. ZEE BEST pique-nique spot.

  • Megan Maria

    I already had it liked on facebook! I definitely love the green cross tea towel. The are all gorgeous though. My favorite place to picnic is along the river (Mississippi river in WI). It’s so gorgeous. Otherwise, picnicking at the top of the bluffs around here is amazing as well.

  • I absolutely LOVE the Geos tea towel!! I live in San Diego, so I’d use it for a picnic overlooking the water at Sunset Cliffs, or at Balboa Park. So fun!

  • Christine

    I love Geos! And a picnic at Applegate Lake in Oregon 🙂

  • My eye goes straight to the green cross… love it! Currently looking forward to picnicking while on vacation in British Columbia!

  • Cortney

    The green cross tea towel is fantastic! I think the picnic basket is perfect to take when watching a summer play in the park or listening to live music someplace, like Ravinia.

  • The mint cross napkins are so chic! I would take them to prospect park in Brooklyn and drink wine under the stars!

  • I am so happy you are getting such a great response! You should, the site and products are so adorable. I would choose the Geos towel to picnic with. My favorite spot would have to be on the other side of MI from your cabin, my family’s cottage on Lake Huron. Thanks for the giveaway!


  • Amy

    I LOVE the mint green cross tea towel and my favorite picnic spot is the Nelson Atkins Museum lawn with the giant shuttlecocks.

  • Cara

    I LOVE your stuff and am obsessed with your blog! I would totally go for the green cross tea towel to picnic with. Love the combo of color and simplicity. Favorite picnic spot right now would be in the middle of Piedmont Park overlooking Midtown ATL–with a bottle of wine and some truffle cheese on a sliced potato/rosemary baguette. Perfection.

  • I love, love, love the arrows tea towels. There is a field of oats at the end of our driveway just begging to have a picnic thrown on it. Thanks for the great give-away!

  • The Geo’s, my favourite spot in the world to picnic is on Christian Island, Ontario Canada, at West beach in the sand dunes closest to the forest and high enough to see in to the distance of the Bay. Beautiful, I think I’ll go there today. Thanks for giving us the chance to win your beautiful products!!


  • Rachael H.

    i LOVE the geos tea towel! favorite picnic spot is a park in dublin, oh. has a beautiful lake and willow trees!

    thanks for the chance! liked on facebook too.


  • I am a fan of the triangle tea towels. My favorite place to picnic would be in a small town in Upstate New York called Livingston Manor. They have a beautiful lake up there with great scenery. Great for a picnic! Thanks for having this giveaway!

  • Awesome!! I am so in love with your new line, Sarah. That Geo tea towel has my heart. Oh, and here in Atlanta, the best picnic spot is Piedmond Park on the big hill. On sunny weekend days, the whole city comes out, but it’s never too crowded and it’s great for people watching. If you ever make it down south, we’ll go a picnic and I’ll show you! 🙂

  • I love the geometric tea towel, and my favorite picnic spot is a little beached tucked away between Santa Barbara and San Francisco called Jalama Beach!

  • Kayla

    Love the mint cross tea towel! I don’t have a favorite picnic spot just favorite people and dogs to go with!

  • dianne anderson

    My favorite is the stripes in black, so fun! As for my favorite picnic spot, that would have to be on any beach.

  • jess tierney

    I love the dots towel, you can’t go wrong with classic black, white + polka dots! It would be perfect to take on a picnic to my favorite little lake with the most amazing blue green water, sounds like a perfect day to me! Congratulations on the new line, it is absolutely stunning!

  • I’m from the UK but I’m entering your giveaway on behalf of my brother and sister in law who live out in Brooklyn. I love the A Sunny Afternoon range and as soon as I saw the gorgeous picnic basket a couple of months ago I thought it make such a lovely wedding present – I’m about 2 years late on giving my brother and his lovely wife a wedding present but I think this would more than make up for it! I would pick the Triangles tea towel to go with the basket for sure. I know they’re partial to a picnic and a spot of people watching in Washington Square Park, NYC x

  • Meghan

    I am so excited about this giveaway! I would pair my basket on the hiking trail of Camelback mountain in Phoenix, AZ with the triangles tea towel.

  • Heidi

    I adore those sunny yellow arrow napkins! I just can’t get enough yellow in my life. I am an avid picnicker and have many favorite spots. On the top of the list are Piedmont Park in Atlanta, the Tuileries in Paris, and the top of Tunnel Park in Holland, MI.

  • Heather

    I love the dots towels! So so cute and now I’m dreaming of a picnic at a nearby park with delicious food and a cute boy to snuggle on a blanket with. 🙂

  • I have had my eye on the green cross tea towel since you opened A Sunny Afternoon! And honestly, it’s hard to find a good, quality picnic basket (I have been looking!), so I would be thrilled to win yours.
    I think my perfect picnic spot would be somewhere in the middle of the field on my sister’s farm in Mitchell, Indiana. It’s the most peaceful place I’ve been too. Plus it would be great to catch up with my sister, since we don’t see each other as often as we’d like.
    Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  • Rachel

    I love the mint cross tea towel. That mint is one of my favorite colors! My favorite picnics are always on the Fourth of July, right before the sun goes down and the fireworks start. There’s something amazing about the excited energy in the crowd while everyone’s noshing on delicious holiday treats in anticipation of the fireworks show. Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  • Tova

    Obsessed with the entire line: gorgeous colors and prints! Fav tea towel? Geometric…with the mint crosses closely following. Picnics at the ball fields with my family mark the best spring days!

  • Esther

    Thank you for the fun giveaway! I love the triangle tea towel and also the mint cross tea towel. My favorite picnic spot is on the sand in Manhattan Beach.

  • I see a lot of GEOs. Yup, that’s my favorite tea towel too! My absolute favorite picnic spot is the Tanglewood lawn while there’s a concert going on. You can just sit or lay around throughout the day and into the night, just enjoying your food, drinks, family and friends.

  • I’ve been admiring the green cross napkins since you launched, but I really love the mint cross in the tea towel. Honestly I think I would want to picnic in our own backyard with this. Under our big, beautiful trees. How sweet, eh? Or maybe on the beach along Lake Michigan.

  • I LOVE the mint cross tea towels! Our favorite place to picnic would be on the beach in Isle of Palms, SC!

  • Allison

    LOVE the green cross tea towel!! our favorite picnic spot is a vineyard in Healdsburg CA.

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE the green cross tea towel…and hello? Table runners sold out? Bummed.

  • Abby

    I prefer the fresh colors on the geo tea towel, and the green cross towel is a close second. Love the basket and would use it on the beach or otherwise lakeside in Chicago 🙂

  • Hi Sarah, I love your homewares range and think you’ve done an amazing job on the cabin! Anyway, my favourite tea towel would be ‘stripes’, and I have to say my favourite picnic spot would simply be in our garden – we’ve just finished landscaping it and its my new favourite place to be! 🙂

  • Kate

    the geometric tea towel design is a fave for sure- Thx!

  • I love the geo tea towel or the triangle one! i have been swooning over them for weeks. 🙂 hope i win for once!

  • A Sunny Afternoon has inspired my BFF & I to plan a monthly picnic (different park each month) with our pals! We’re lovingly referring to it as 2nd Sundays! Our first picnic is this Sunday @ the park in Playa Vista!!!! We extra heart A Sunday Afternoon & all product in your line! The mint crosses are calling to me this week!

  • I love the geos tea towel (and matching napkins). I was admiring them on Pinterest last night before seeing this great competition. http://www.asunnyafternoon.com/product/tea-towel-geos

    I would love to bring the picnic basket, my tea towel, and a bottle of rose to Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn!

  • Tammy Ruch

    What a generous giveaway!


  • Polka dot napkins ALL THE WAY! I’d also bring in the yellow arrow napkins as a pop of color! I love the yellow. It would be perfect on a grassy hill in Grand Haven over looking Lake Michigan.

  • Hi Sarah!
    So obsessed with the set of 2 geo napkins. I purchased the triangle table runner already and the napkins would be a great accent.
    Fave spot to picnic? Cliche but Central Park after a long day. Nothing beats meeting the girls, vino in hand and lots of cheese and crackers.
    xx! Congrats on such a successful launch. Totally hooked.

  • Nikki

    Well I can say this, what fabulous tea towels!! It wasn’t too hard to pick out my favorite though, Green Cross!! It reminds me of two of my favorite picnic spots and two of my favorite people. I recently lost both of my grandparents, within 4 months of each other. Growing up my sister and I used to spend long summer visits with them, and picnics were always at the top of the list. My favorite picnic spots with my grandparents and even to this day are beach at Crissy Fields in San Francisco, La Familia picnic grounds in Oakville (Napa) and the park near my grandparents old home, The Elk Grove Park. Every year in July my family and I would venture up to the small suburb outside of Sacramento for the Strauss festival at The Elk Grove Park. It was an evening of amazing music and dance, with of course the most wonderful picnic. Each year our menu became fancier and fancier. This basket would have been perfect, and the green cross tea towel would have been a staple in my Grandmother’s linen drawer…lots of green for her Irish heritage and always a cross for her Catholic upbringing. Whomever wins this little contest is sure to be smitten over his/her basket!!

  • I like the green cross tea towels

  • also, my favorite picnic spot is our back yard!

  • I LOVE all of the tea towels, but the geometric one is definitely catching my eye a little more!

  • Jessica Dimmer

    I LOVE the tea towel geometric! My favorite picnic spot is… Any place where I can see the water and smell the ocean.

  • Riad

    GEOS is absolutely gorgeous! I easily see how your products would make a picnic even more enjoyable. Fav spot is Saint Bauzille De Putois, Southern France : )

  • Oh, it`s not fair that Europe doesn`t have a chance winning…..especially after I fell in love with the picnic basket! Well, at least I can enjoy photos of it. 🙂
    Good luck to everyone!

    p.s. im loving all the products in the shop, keep up the good work!

    xo, Maja

  • Congratulations on A Sunny Afternoon, I love the concept and the entire thought process that has gone into your branding. I am from Montana and one thing I love about my parents house is their copper weather vane, so when I saw that as your logo I instantly fell in love.

    My favorite napkins are your stripped ones, the colors flow is beautiful, the pale pink looks great next to the black. If I had to choose my favorite picnic spot it would either be at my parents farm along the yellowstone river, with a big white blanket. Or at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco… where the houses near by are filled will unique doors and the Palace structure is their view. The baskets unique details fits in every picnic spot.

  • Love the little crosses on mint! http://www.asunnyafternoon.com/product/tea-towel-mint-cross The best picnics are spontaneous ones, spent in nature, surrounded by friends and loved ones.

  • LOVE Crosses and Geos!! I design products myself and plus signs and geometric patterns are some of my favorite things right “now”. Picnics are so fun when hiking the mountains in New Hampshire in the summertime! 🙂

  • Kim

    Loooove the mint cross tea towel! I live in rural Ohio so an impromptu cornfield picnic is always a possibility 🙂

  • I love the mint crosses towel! My favorite picnic spot will always involve a beach.

  • Maggie

    That picnic basket is gorgeous. The vinyl lining is genius. I’d pair it with the Green Cross tea towel. (Gotta love a pop of green.)

    My favorite picnic spot is the grassy hill overlooking the Polo Field at Will Rogers State Park. To me, “A Sunmy Afternoon” is watching the Polo Club practice and compete while enjoying a picnic of sandwiches, bread, wine and snacks from Bay Cities Deli.

  • i love the polka dot one! so cute!
    the best picnic i’ve had before was with my family in our backyard! haha!
    sometimes the simplest things make the best memories (:
    thanks for the chance to win!
    xo, minna so

  • christine

    I love the mint cross wi the picnic basket. My favorite spot is in Watkins Glen, NY. There is some great hiking and a wonderful wild blueberry patch. The picnic basket would help carry some blueberries home!

  • I love the triangles, and love to picnic in Laguna beach or in my back yard!

  • Where is that skirt from?! I love it

  • @Dana… Its from madewell. 🙂

  • Kelli

    sarah, do you know where the black wedges your friend is wearing are from? thank you!
