Picnic with the Stars

As you may know, the famous actor Paul Newman started Newman’s Own, a company that donates 100% of profits to charity. Fill a Nantucket basket or picnic basket with a couple eco-friendly dishtowels and pretty serving spoons and some Newman’s Own products, and voila! – you have a festive present for under the tree, a foodie’s birthday, or even a wedding shower. You can have fun with Newman’s Organics as well – I can picture a little snack basket with pretzels, popcorn, salsa and some chocolate chip cookies and lemon-aided iced tea (Arnold Palmers – my favorite) for dessert.

This post was inspired by a Friday photo on a blog that always makes me smile…

and The Office’s Thursday nod to The Sting, a favorite film of my Dad’s. Perhaps influenced by my cousin Steve, producer for the show?

If only to open a picnic basket with these two!
