12 Fantastic Picnic Baskets Perfect For Outdoor Entertaining (PHOTOS)

We've been thinking up ways to entertain friends and family outdoors thanks to the sunny weather. And without a doubt it's the perfect time for picnics at the park, so we're turning an eye to handy and pretty picnic baskets.

Whether it's made of wicker or woven rattan, a good picnic basket can really help make packing and toting food and beverages much less stressful. Many picnic baskets also come with compartments made specifically for flatware, glasses and even large bottles, which helps cushion items. And when you're not using your picnic basket, it can easily be tucked away on a bottom shelf and used as storage in the kitchen.
