The size and color are just what I was looking for. Perfect for carrying food, utensils, anything. However, since these baskets are stored and shipped folded, they don't stand up as nicely as the one in the picture.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exact
I got this for my college student, filled it with stuff she likes and sent it off, knowing she could enjoy the goodies then fold the picnic basket down and store it away. In addition, she likes to go to the park and the beach with her friends and she'll finally have something to carry their food items, but still have room in the dorm for the basket. It was a win/win situation. I just hope she remember to bring it back home with her at the end of the semester because Mom wants to use it too!!
