June= picnic month • A Subtle Revelry

June= picnic month

June= picnic month

A few weeks ago I feel in love with this idea of having a picnic club. Shortly after I swooned over this picnic so glamorously designed. My new obsession for picnics has been firmly sealed after seeing this sweetly done urban one early this week.

(An urban picnic)

My own picnic design has quickly followed this new obsession and soon I will be sharing printables for an easy to replicate afternoon soiree under a tree, but I don’t want to stop there. Today it is beginning to feel like summer and what better way to celebrate than by throwing a picnic for your friends!

So… we are setting aside June to celebrate picnic month…

While I am busy working on this picnic design, I want to encourage you to celebrate this summer as well. Throughout the month of June in addition to sharing a lovely picnic projects, details & photo’s- I also want to hear from you.

June 1st we will be launching a huge contest with my first ever Mr. Linky where you can load up and share with us your picnic photos and plans. I will be featuring your real life picnics throughout the month and I have a fabulous (secret for now) prize for my favorite one.

I want to let you know about the contest early so you can begin to dream up your own picnic- big or small, costly or not. I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Breathe deep, celebrate, take a few photos… summer is almost here.

    Love the urban picnic photo! I looked at the blog it came from, so cute! Is it okay if I use the photo on my blog with credit?

    Also, I sent a link to your sly fox party to my sister who is planning a party for a friend. She loves it!
