GlobeIn June 2019 “Picnic Box” Review
Each box from GlobeIn contains a booklet that talks more about the theme for the box and the items inside. This little booklet is almost as valuable to me as the items inside the box because it gives background on each piece and often gives the names and shows photographs of the artisans who made them! I absolutely love knowing more about each item and the hands that crafted it.
Just a heads up, since there aren’t prices listed in the booklet for the items, I’m going off the prices given in this Globein spoilers post for items I couldn’t find online.
Small Picnic Basket, 13″ x 7″, Ghana– Listed Value $40.00
It is a good day when I am able to add a new basket to my collection! This little picnic basket couldn’t be cuter! Sizable enough for the most important items in life (grapes, expensive cheese, some booze) this would be a really adorable accent to any picnic or gathering. Made by an artisan named Alebipoorum in Ghana, the process to make this basket is pretty time-consuming! Each one takes about a week to finish. I can’t wait to bring this to my next summery get together filled with snacks. I might even just use it as a purse since woven is in this season and it would actually be a great size for my wallet, DSLR camera, and lipsticks.
Tall Handblown Glass Pair, Approx. 5″ T x 3″ D. 17oz., Mexico – Listed Value $30.00
Handblown glasses are a staple in this box, and I love that I have a collection growing in my cabinets of some of the most beautiful glassware out there! These taller tumblers are beautifully imperfect and feature a lovely red, white, and blue rim. They complement the picnic basket perfectly! I can’t help but get Americana vibes from the color palette this month and I think these would be perfect for serving a 4th of July inspired white sangria, with strawberries and blueberries.
Blue Splatter Enamel Serving Tray, 9″ x 6″ x 1.25″, India – Listed Value $18.00
Finally, our last item is a really pretty enamel serving tray. I love keeping trays like this around my house because they can be used for so many things. I have a similar one that I keep in my bathroom with my current skincare products. I also have a few little ones that I use to organize my nail polishes and jewelry. Again, this piece perfectly coordinated with the glasses and basket, so together they would make a really lovely picnic set.
The Verdict: GlobeIn really transported me into a summer mindset this month. My husband and I picnic frequently in the warm months and we also attend a ton of backyard BBQs and celebrations. I love that I can transport some delicious snacks to these events in such a stylish basket. They tray first perfectly inside so I can easily present my food on a stylish surface. The glasses are a welcome addition to my growing handmade glassware collection!
