So when we realized we shared a mutual adoration for all things picnic...we bonded. ♥ Seriously. I am even planning a picnic birthday party for my girls next month. I think it's the simplicity, nostalgia, and timeless fun of a picnic that gets me. My daughters and I have them in the front yard all the time. There is something so fun about sitting together outside, talking and laughing without modern conveniences to get in the way. Just creation, family, and a way to slow down.
So I came up with a fun idea that would work great for a sweet little picnic for two. A nice idea for Mommy and Daddy to get away for a walk alone or just two girlfriends to catch up and chat. I actually have a little lake down the street from me and hope one day my hubby and I can slip away and do this very thing together.
And here is another quick trick that inspired the above wrapped picnic. Have you heard of this Japanese wrapping technique called furoshiki? It basically means wrapping gifts in cloth. Well here is a fun way to bring your bottle drinks to a picnic or even as a great hostess gift...
Well, I'll be trying this for my next date night. Thank you for sharing, Jessica! What a simple idea for making an al fresco dinner special! It just proves that you don't need a lot of advanced planning and extra items to make a cute meal really fun.
