Besides what Brian mentioned, I would say that this method is fine.
One thing that crosses my mind is your quantities. Is there a reason
for hard coding the quantities to 1? Are you restricting customers from
ordering more than one of the same item? If so, then you will need to
stop them from adding the same item to their cart more than once. They
add it to their cart, the page refreshes, and then they click on the
item again. Something to think about. But if this isn't a problem,
then don't worry about it.
