I have been hanging around the fine site of New York City’s William-Wayne & Co. looking for some inspiration to spice up my outdoor dining and picnics this summer.

I am really digging the Dragon Fly Food Dome (right) I found from William-Wayne & Co. The dome, designed to keep pesky bugs off of your picnic, is a classy upgrade from more kitschy versions from days past. It also comes in Bumble Bee and Lady Bug versions.

Meanwhile, William-Wayne & Co. also have these great American Tall Ship Tin Picnic Plates – perfect for a harbor-side picnic when the Tall Ship visit Boston in the big Sail Boston event next week.

For a more elegant and intimate event, splurge on William-Wayne & Co.’s Blue Lace Tea for Two set.

William-Wayne & Co. is located at 846 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY – but lucky for us they are a great online store.

Sail Boston with tall ships from around the world runs June 17-22 in the great city of Boston, MA.
