Until recently, I thought trivets were only for hot pots – the handy tool to protect your table and countertop from getting scorch marks from a hot pot or dish. Then, we took a trivet on a picnic and it leveled up our picnicking experience. Now we don’t have to constantly worry about spilling our drinks!
As all picnic-lovers know, no matter how thick your picnic blanket, the grass makes a picnic blanket a lumpy surface. Without a sturdy level surface to place your drinks, your soda can or beer bottle are very likely to fall over. Nothing ruins a picnic like a soaked picnic blanket – because where are you going to sit now?
That’s when a trivet comes in extra handy! It’s that sturdy level surface you need to keep your drinks safe from spilling over. If you are in search of a cute trivet, check out our Dapper Animals Etsy shop. We took two of our waffle trivets on our latest picnic – one for drinks and one for snacks. It was lovely not worrying about spilling beverages.
It now seems pretty obvious, but it had never crossed my mind to bring a trivet on a picnic.

We are wearing the same dress in two different colors. This dress is made by an English brand called Closet London. We love the silhouette of this dress, it’s so flattering with the A-line skirt. We’ve had these for years, so we linked similar dresses you can find at Modcloth.
