A French Picnic Basket for Mother’s Day

Mollie Stone’s is celebrating “Springtime in Paris” by highlighting authentic French cheeses, charcuterie, jams, wines, baked goods and more. With Mother’s Day coming up, we thought it would be fun to transport Mom’s taste buds to Paris for a day with a picnic basket filled with French goodies.

Invite Mom to your favorite park on Mother’s Day to enjoy a leisurely afternoon of good conversation while snacking on good food. Keep reading for our list of must-haves for a perfect French picnic – don’t forget the picnic blanket, champagne flutes, napkins & utensils!
