Summer feels like it is flying by this year! Enjoying this glorious season of sun and rest through picnicking is a magical way to slow it down, even if only for an afternoon. This week I will be sharing photos and projects I’ve styled for summer picnic inspiration. Simple textures, little sandwiches and a bit of festive flair thrown into the mix will make any afternoon in the park one to celebrate.

Creating a pretty picnic should be easy. Dip dyed streamers in perfect shades of pink, a homemade picnic basket, and a thick butcher block set the stage for our party for two under the sun.

Have you enjoyed a picnic outdoors yet this season? It is worth sneaking out for an afternoon with someone or someones to lay on a blanket and break bread together. A sweet dessert (like extra large macaroons) will encourage the celebration all the more and simple summer blossoms laid about give that relaxed feeling we all crave this time of year.
