The act of picnicking is inherently romantic—for occasions requiring perfect presentation (think Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief), consider Heath's special edition, hand-plaited ash picnic basket from the Peterboro Basket Company, lined with fabric from South African design house Skinny Laminx.
