“What’s in Your Collection”: Vintage Picnic Hampers

As summer unfolds, I begin to think about my “picnic entertaining”.  I have always loved antique and vintage picnic hampers and would love to have a collection-but alas…no room to store yet another collection!  But one can always plan ahead and maybe all these lovely hampers will inspire  us to at least collect one special one for our summer picnic entertaining!

These fun vintage picnic tins make an interesting and colorful collection!

I am fortunate to have one of these lovely antique wine baskets which will carry six of your favorite “picnic beverages”.  I see these regularly in antique shops, so be on the hunt for one of these and a great old antique or vintage picnic hamper.  Then fill it with your favorite collection of antique or vintage dinnerware, cutlery, and stemware.  Top that off with an old quilt or a plaid throw and you are ready for some tasty and beautiful picnics.

And if you are a collector of picnic hampers, let us know!  We would love to see your collection.

Enjoy!

    Don’t have a collection of these beauties, but I’ve the wicker picnic basket that my dad gave me when I went off to the university in the late 60s. It has remained a special piece to me all these years. I’ve one other vintage hamper that I found at a thrift store and couldn’t pass up. Fun to see these that you found for your collage.
