While food is the best part of a picnic, don’t forget the picnic accessories. The right picnic basket can make your picnic planning so much easier. And ditch those boring paper plates for fun chic plates. But of course, paper is unnecessary waste, so try these stylish reusable melamine plate from Target. We also love these bamboo veneer utensils (pictured above); they are safe for use indoors or out and are biodegradable; $10 gets you a set of 8.

Here are some of our favorite picnic finds for under $30.
