Last week's temp rise to Hades-like heights made it impossible to deny that summer is in full effect. And around here we're making the most of it by spending every possible second outside, which means mealtimes become glorious, languid picnics on the grass or by the shore. With L.A.'s picture-perfect vistas from Solstice Canyon to the Hollywood Bowl as our setting and summer's brightest prints on our backs, our little ad hoc bashes are begging to be flaunted on our 'gram feed — which is why we wouldn't be caught dead with plain old paper plates!
With that in mind we've rounded up the cutest, coolest, and most useful picnic paraphernalia to make sure you're geared up for those alfresco feasts. We've got you covered with all of the little details — everything from poppy knife guards to cheeky stoppers that will keep that bottle of vino fresh long after the sun dips past the horizon. Now start packin' the car for your best blanket-top fête yet.
