The cooler fall weather is upon us and with it, in our opinion, the perfect season for picnics! While summer temperatures often making dining al fresco uncomfortable, fall offers the perfect breezy weather for camping out in the grass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So whether you are packing up for a date in your favorite park, a football tailgating event with friends, or an afternoon adventure with the kiddos, shop our must-have fall picnic essentials below.
Choosing the right picnic basket largely depends on what type of picnicker you are! Do you just need to pack up the wine and cheese for a romantic date under the stars with your significant other? Do you need lots of room to pack and possibly a rolling version because you bring the whole family or tailgate crew along with you? Are you a picnic fashionista, and want your picnic pack to be as stylish as you are? Whatever your answer, we’ve highlighted our top styles that work best for every type of picnicker below.

A great picnic blanket is key to any outdoor meal in the grass. For the fall, look for styles that are wool and cozy, and will keep you warm even as the temperatures begin to drop. If you are picnicking while on the go or possibly hiking to your next lunch outdoors, a blanket that folds or collapses into a tote with a carry strap might work best for you; you might even want to keep one tucked away in your trunk for impromptu picnics or other outdoor activities. And if you have little kiddos, look for something made of a material like polyester, which can easily be wiped down after messy meals.
