Warm weather and the feel of the beautiful sunshine on my face brings back so many childhood memories. If the sun was shining on a warm summer day, you would find me outside first thing in the morning until my mother called me in for dinner. She learned quickly that I drowned out her voice with the laughter of my neighborhood friends and the sound of running feet playing tag. That is when I heard the whistle blowing signaling it was time to call it a day.
I am still that way today when it comes to warm weather and the feeling of being outside. Except now it is me working in my yard or reading a book. I’ve been wanting to surprise my husband with a summer picnic in the gorgeous park in our neighborhood. Of course I would want the cutesy picnic basket and with fun and unique tableware to go along with our food. I have gathered my favorite picnic items that will be perfect for your summer outing with your significant other, friends, or your entire family.
1. Let your napkins set the tone of your colorful picnic! These gorgeous and vibrant napkins from Graphique Boutique add the perfect summer touch to your picnic basket.
2. I want to find every occasion possible to use these color block utensils! Such a fun way to add flair to the picnic your are planning!
3. With the pops of color in the napkins and utensils, these palm leaf patterned plates are a great neutral yet unique all at the same time.
4. Oh my sweet goodness! I love everything about these recycled takeout boxes to place your food in. They are leak and grease resistant and don’t worry about leftovers. They are microwave safe!
