18 Patterned Picks For Your Sweetest Picnic Yet

With everybody crowding the Jitney and the brunch lines getting out of hand, there's always one reliable activity that promises to get everybody in the sun with zero wait time: picnicking in the park.
Sitting on a blanket, munching on some snacks, basking in the sun without a care in the world? Sounds pretty great to us. And, considering our slight obsession with style, don’t expect us to do this the simple, old-fashioned way with paper utensils stolen borrowed from Whole Foods. We need bright. We need loud. We need patterns. So, cue up the slideshow. Your stylin' spread awaits.

The Patterned Mani
