Picnic Time



It's the perfect time of year to enjoy picnics outside. I love picnics but seldom ever get to do one because it seems like people just can't stop and relax long enough to really enjoy a picnic. I find it fun though to pack treats into a basket or bag and lay out on blankets until the sun sets. Pinterest has adorable picnic solutions with links back to the product's website. Take a look and click around to find your perfect picnic goods. I hope to have one sometime soon and post it here! Stay tuned for that.



Very organized picnic equipment for four makes hauling the gear easier.



Another "picnic basket" idea is to repurpose an old suitcase with fabric inside and dividers to hold utensils, with a fresh coat of cheery paint on the outside.



Containers with labels are easy to make and adorable set around the blanket. Don't forget to recycle what you can!



These are so cute for a slightly fancier picnic with the girls.



Coolers are essential when eating outdoors, especially in the summer months. This is stylish and a little retro all at the same time.



Combining a cute cloth napkin and cutlery together in a mason jar is an instant place setting-napking, utensils and drinking glass all in one. Plus, you don't have to throw anything away and can reuse later after a wash.



An easy way to transport messier food that has more of a liquid consistency is in a smaller mason jar so easy dipping is key. Layered desserts would work well in these as well. Just don't forget the lid.



Don't go to the trouble of building a bonfire, just get these little burners and some skewers and make some s'mores! I want to try a peanut butter cup rather than Hershey's bars next time!
