Magic Carpet Ride

Enjoy an outdoor rosé session on a picnic blanket that looks like an Oriental rug.


Available for a limited time at Nest
4524 McKinney Ave

The idea of an al fresco date in the park is great in theory, but the likeliness of you putting your white denim derrière in the grass is slim to nuh-uh.

Lay a lovely base with a picnic blanket from Coppell-based Fatboy. The design is the spitting image of an aging, antique Oriental rug you'd find in your super-traditional mom's living room, but is actually soft, durable and weather-resistent for the outside and all its elements (your wine spills). The makers have thought of everything - the oversized blanket comes with four red pins to secure your place at the concert, a brush to rid the space of sand and crumbs, and a spot in the middle for a sun umbrella. There's even an attached pocket for your keys and phone. 

It's a no brainer buy. No questions ass'd.
