Charming Friday Links: Spring Picnic


boat-picnicspring_picnic-truck-picnicThere are so many fun ways to entertain for friends and family, and picnics are one of my favorites! Gone are the days of throwing some  bologna sandwiches in an old basket! Picnics have gone artisan now with so many charming picnic baskets, fun items to buy and unique ways to prepare and pack. It’s all about the fresh cheese, olives, breads, jams, fruits and delicious gourmet sandwiches. I love making cocktails to go too and packing my son’s favorite snacks. There’s something sweet about choosing a special location for a relaxing picnic outside, then playing games, reading books and just hanging out! We’ll definitely be doing more picnics now that it’s spring!

    This post makes me want to have a picnic so bad! Too bad the pollen is horrendous in NC right now. I love the classic picnic basket in the first picture!
