I remember my mom fixing some 'Pigs in a Blanket' with Pillsbury crescent rolls, Kraft process cheese slices and hot dog sausages. She would cook them and when lukewarm put them in an old Lion's Club Fruit Cake tin . We would pack drinks and head up to 'the Mountain'.
The 'mountain' in Montreal is Mount Royal. It's really a hill sitting in the middle of the city. It's green and lush and the lung of the city. It would be my fave place to hang out. I would go there on sunday with my dad to pick wild flowers (before we thought of protecting species-remember it was the 70's).
I also have great picnic memories with my cousins (all big Martha Stewart fans). We would make gourmet fare, meet an have a picnic on a beach in Ste-Adele.
So imagine my surprise when my Dad gave me this beautiful Picnic Basket!
Splendor in the grass....
This one was made in England in the late 50's or early 60's by Sirram.
It is brand new. Vintage yet never been used.
Everything for 6 and the tags are still on!
Look at all those fab containers! And 3 thermoses!
I'm so grateful my Dad gets me and shares my love of sweet vintage. This wonderfull Picnic Basket came from the wonderful Mrs Silverstone's shop in Park Ex.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Suzanne from Colorado Lady for more VTT Fun!
