I shopped around for a good one and this was it! I DID replace the plates, though, which were pretty flimsy. And I added a few touches of my own (tablecloth, cloth napkins, bottle of wine). Good purchase. Lovely basket.
This basket is a perfect size for travel. One crooked hinge had to be reinstalled. Sharp staple ends had to be turned in for safety. This was a gift with no time for return. It did have to be repaired.
The basket is extremely cute and all of the items are well made. The basket is filled with the items, and there is not room to add any extra food. I purchased an extra food carrier, and I had everything I needed for a great picnic. This is also a great basket for a wine and cheese outing.
This is a very cute picnic set, which I bought for my mom for Mother's Day. She and my dad could have used it to go on picnics near their home or on boat trips in their little skiff. I love that there is real dishware, glassware, and flatware, as well as salt shakers, a cheese board, cheese knife, and cork screw. Unfortunately, the design of the basket could be better. As other reviewers noted, the heft of the top due to the glassware and flatware storage is problematic. In our case, the lid of the basket broke reeds on the basket before we even received it. I think this is a flaw in the design. I don't think it can be remedied by getting an undamaged basket, as I would be afraid that the lid would break the basket whenever my parents would use it. Too bad, because it is very cute and would make a lovely picnic all laid out on the plaid blanket. I'll look for something more sturdy. I generally like Picnic Time products and have a picnic set/cooler from them that I use frequently.
