Spring Picnic Blankets and Tents

Shopping For a Moonrise Kingdom-Inspired Picnic

We're absolutely smitten with the look of Wes Anderson's new film Moonrise Kingdom. Retro-inspired scout gear, ranging from Davy Crockett hats to fishing creel purses, has us longing to recreate a quirky outdoor adventure of our own. We have our eye on inventive accessories like corkscrew wine glass holders ($14 for a set of two) that can easily be staked into soft soil. Or a portable seat ($60) with multiple reclining positions that comes in an electric lime hue.

Of course, if the weather won't comply, you can always revert to everyone's favorite childhood pastime – fort building! Only this version meets the style and comfort requirements of adults and can be left up until you tire of it.

Brilliantly built around a plush sofa, this fort allows you to eliminate floor squatting. Below the sofa, a vintage style suitcase serves double duty as a wanderlust prop and a convenient place to set drinks or stash extra blankets. Brightly striped throws look sporty but polished, and a fringed cotton rug straddles the line of easy indoor-outdoor living.

Ohhh my gosh.  I want this adult fort in my home now!  How fun would it be to snuggle up in there with a glass of red wine?  (NOT something that was ever in my childhood forts!)
