Let’s Picnic!


One of my favorite ways to celebrate the Spring Season is with a classic picnic with family and friends. It’s nostalgic fun, and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. My idea of a picnic includes family and friends, a classic menu, and touches of style.


Here’s a few of tips to help you create a charming outdoor picnic:

  • It’s all about the basket. This essential picnic item can be classic or trendy, or any kind of tote, or container can work – go ahead and get creative! As long as it offers space to pack your picnic items – you’re good to go.
  • Keep the menu easy. Finger goods are easy to pack and enjoy as a group. Think sandwiches, fresh fruits, and simple cookie treats.
  • Set the scene. Decorative containers and a thoughtful picnic setting will cheer up the spread, and your guests. Opt for reusable containers and beverage bottles, so that you can reuse them again.
  • Pack comfy blankets and pillows! Decorate your picnic area with throw pillows and blankets to create a comfy seating area while adding to the outdoor ambience. Play games or do a bit of reading or simply  enjoy the outdoors.
