Ants that can shake a picnic

Housewares: thse salt and pepper shakers can really season a meal on the grass



There will be plenty of happy picnic faces, thanks to One Hundred 80 Degrees fire ant salt and pepper shakers ($24.95). Pair them with a set of melamine “I am not a paper plate” washable plates (four for $23.95), and you have the beginnings of an al fresco meal that won’t bite your ankles or hurt the planet.
