A few weeks ago in Savannah, we had a little picnic in Forsyth Park and, despite the summer bugs, it was quite idyllic. We sat just behind the fountain, underneath a huge live oak on our cozy little Ralph Lauren blanket. I brought some pieces from home to dress it up a little, like a pair of blue milk glass cups, a white porcelain bowl for the fruit, our favorite buffalo plaid napkins from Williams-Sonoma, and the pièce de résistance, the vintage picnic basket we picked up last year from The Church Mouse in Palm Beach.
As for the food, everything was, of course, from Trader Joe’s. We had some pre-made sandwiches, grapes, kettle chips, and sparkling lemonade which was a perfect combination for such a hot day. Later, we had cups of frosé and then, for dessert we went over to Leopold’s to get ice-cream cones but the line was so long, we ended up just going to Ben & Jerry’s for Cherry Garcia which we took with us while we walked along the river (and the set of the show Ozark) back to the hotel.
