Celebrate picnic month- Finalist #2

This picnic was submitted by Lisa and was hosted for Father’s Day this year. I immediately fell in love with her beautiful photos & sweet sentiments about picnicking…

In her own words: I’m ready to PIC-NIK! Blackberries, Breeze, Blankets, and Baskets. Enjoying light food in an outdoor paradise… On an old splintered table… Beneath looming shade trees.

I used plenty of little lanterns, old soda crates, fresh flowers, and my mom’s vintage tablecloth to set the table.

Jars are an excellent way to hold picnic food! They transport easily and look much prettier than Tupperware. It’s a simple way to add beauty to the table and still keep it functional.

Picnics give delight to little hearts who want room to run, they give peace to older hearts who need an escape from the fast food lines,¬¨‚Ć and they give joy to the families who gather around the splintered tables to celebrate life. - I couldn’t agree more!

Happy Picnicking- you have until 6pm Tuesday to vote for this picnic.
