August is here, and what better way to celebrate the remaining days of summer than with a picnic? Wow your friends with these classy essentials, emphasizing warm-weather materials like wicker and linen. Up your mood by sporting reds, pinks, oranges and yellows — the colors of a summer sunset. Go beyond the traditional picnic basket with a portable cooler and a fun lantern-speaker combo. Then cap off your afternoon with a game of croquet to, as they say in the Big Easy, laissez les bons temps rouler!
