Well we have finally reached the official start of Summer June 21, 2011. Even through the weather is not cooperating in some parts of the U.S.A., we can still plan for a perfect sunny day’s picnic.
I found a menagerie of things that would really lend a hand to your picnicking fun. It was all spurred on from and idea I saw in the July 2011 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. They had a feature article called “Sharing Summer” about outdoor dining and entertaining. The hostess in the article said she uses vintage tablecloths for her outdoor dining and entertaining; both on tables and on the ground.
So I started poking around the vintage section of etsy to see what I could find. I did find a cool tablecloth that would be “Oh So Cute” as a picnic blanket for two or over a card table under a large canopy tree.
Then I found a great cake carrier in pink and stainless steel.
Then I found a cool set of pink plastic silverware.
Well, I was on a roll. I actually created a Treasury on etsy to showcase my fun finds.
But I will list a few here for your inspiration and enjoyment.
Vintage Pink Therm-O-Jug. Who’d have thunk? A Thermos in pink! Very hip!
Of course you will need some napkins to wipe the cherry juice off your chin when you bite into a ripe cherry….
Don’t let the ants go marching one by one on your pretty event!
Finally you might need some cool eye protection.
Hope your picnic season is stylish and free from pesky critters.
