  3. Holy Cow Paul, what a spectacular give away! We love to picnic!

    Really missing London's Olympics. Wish they were for 3 weeks instead of just 2. Quite a letdown for us! Will be fun to go check out the changes to the East End on the next visit.

    Thank you for offering such a wonderful give away to your fans!

  4. Holding my hand very high and waving!!!! Me, me, me!!
    The Fortnums giveaway looks fabulous-would love to be included.
    Hope you have a lovely evening,

  5. Dear Paul - you are so very generous with your monthly giveaways. Even if one does not win, it is lovely to enjoy the prospect for a week or two that you might.

  6. WOW, what a beautiful picnic trio... I LOVE fall for picnics "AND" the holidays are RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER... You'll be "SOOO BUSY"!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  7. Hello Paul:
    The Picnic is a relatively unknown quantity here in Budapest but we do our best to introduce the concept more widely. After all, we do have the weather for it here. But, how stylish we should look with the Fortnum and Mason 'trio' which you are so generously offering as your giveaway. No longer would we need to use our moth eaten rug which has certainly seen better days and the flasks would be the perfect disguise for the Hungarian champagne!

    Happy weekend!

  8. I follow your blog!
    This giveaway is just in time for the end of the summer picnics! My son is a year old and absolutely loves to be outside so we are spending as much time out there as we can - picnic equipment would definitely make things easier.
    Thanks for the giveaway!


  9. That is some serious gear:) Sign me up:)

  10. Love those - they would be great on our next outing.

  11. Love this giveaway! Following your blog via GFC! Thank you for an amazing giveaway! Good luck to everyone who has entered!

  12. I love Fortnum & Mason. I always stop by at their store on Picadilly St to shop and to eat at their several restaurants. During my last visit in London last Spring, we had Afternoon Tea at the newly renovated Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon. We had fun! I love their teas. I drink the F&M teas here at home in Toronto. I have also featured F & M in my blog. F & M is one of my favourite shops in the world!

  13. this is great!

    Have a lovely day! Stop by and say hello! :)

  14. This is such a generous, useful, and thoroughly marvelous giveaway Paul. I'm familiar with F&M but have never had a chance to own anything so glamorous for picnicking! We like to hop in the car and take a ride into the North Carolina countryside with a picnic lunch or tea once the mosquito season ends - I would so love to pull these out, spread that awesome blanket, and loll on the grass sipping excellent F&M English teas. Please toss my name in the hat Paul.

    Many thanks, Mary

  15. Wow, what a lovely giveaway. Mu husband and I were sitting having a picnic on Camber Sands beach and we said "we really must get ourselves a thermos so we can have cups of coffee. This is so compact and well designed. x

  16. Dreaming of an autumn picnic in lovely!

  17. wonderful sharing, what a fab picnic accessorie, beautifuly, hugs

  18. Oh Paul, they are so beautiful and you are very very generous. We picnic a lot over here as well, but not with such fancy gear ;-)

  19. Another fabulous giveaway....oh, yes! Count me in. Fingers crossed :) Thanks, Paul.

  23. Dear Paul,
    a picnic we did two weeks before, in the garden of the Jewish Museum in Berlin - they sell filled picnic baskets and there is always a special concert. But inviting to a picnic like Hyacinth Bucket - a riparian would be best - with that picnic set would enable me to leave at home "my Royal Doulton hand-painted periwinkle, though it is not really my best. My really best I keep for a more formal occasion, such as a musical soirée followed by a little candlelight supper." Oh, and with winning the picnic set I could even invite Elizabeth!

  24. Hi Paul,
    That is so beautiful and I want it. Pick me.

  25. Paul,
    Love to win that hot pack.
    Thanks so much for such a wonderful give-away!
