Fall may be on the way but judging by the weather summer isn’t over just yet. And there’s no better way to close off the season (and start the NFL season) than with a fancy picnic. Whether your plans include family, friends, or little ones, we’ve got you covered when it comes to the essentials you’ll need.
Feeling classic? Then how about a Mickey and Minnie theme?

The interior of the Minnie Mouse Topanga Cooler Tote Bag is made of heat-sealed PVC to prevent leaks, and is large enough to carry up to 24 cans of soda – or perhaps the aforementioned wine or cider? Made of durable polyester with an exterior pocket perfect for your wallet or keys, this bag is also great for any wet towels or swimsuits after a day at the beach or pool!

And the Beauty and the Beast Metro Basket Collapsible Cooler Tote Bag is a lightweight, fully-collapsible, insulated basket large enough to handle any occasion!

Speaking of stories from long, long ago: how about a Star Wars-themed end-of-summer bash? The R2-D2 Portable Beach Umbrella provides refreshing shade on any beach, camping, or picnic adventure. The pole measures 81 1/2-inches tall with a tilting option and a pointed end for easier penetration in any sand or dirt.

The seats are molded polypropylene with a basket weave pattern; the frame is a durable aluminum alloy.

To complete the set, there’s the R2-D2 PTX Cooler Backpack.

A variety of expandable pockets and a front-mounted stretch cord allow it to accommodate items beyond its visual confines. Backpack measures 17-inches long x 12-inches wide x 4-inches tall.

Should a sudden shower disrupt your gathering, the blanket doubles as a handy, protective cape! Measures 59-inches x 51-inches when unfolded, making it big enough for you and several friends!
For those who don’t like to (or can’t) sit on the ground, Cap’s got you covered with some alternative seating options. The Captain America Sports Chair is lightweight, portable, and folds easily, with a sturdy aluminum frame and an adjustable shoulder strap for easy carrying OR two sturdy webbing handles.
