The summertime spread

We played picnic at Freeman Lake

with the colors of the summer.

Join us for inspiration from our own backyard.


We’ve packed a picnic basket—a cool, vintage one—with some Topo Chico, FINE’s classic diner-style glassware, and the ingredients for an easy spread of charcuterie essentials.

When was the last time you held a proper picnic?

With the weather as fantastic as it has been, we made use of the ample green space & gathering places at Freeman Lake for an easy, refined

dinner in the fresh air.

Even if it’s all you pack,

grazing from a summery charcuterie is an easy way to dress up an outdoor gathering, picnic or not.


Serving plank

Cheese knives

Light crackers

Prosciutto/cold cuts

Sweet gherkin pickles

Brie, goat, colby jack, and blue cheeses

Citrus fruit for the table


Nothing says “summer dinner” like a burger over charcoal, an easy way to dish out a meal for two or ten. Serve them up with fresh sides on your picnic place settings, where we added FINE’s vintage flatware sets for added whimsy.
