This was our setup under the shade tree in our yard today.
Now, for the perfect picnic story which happened today...
It doesn't have to be National Picnic Day to have a picnic. Every day can be a picnic day. I have even been known to set a blanket on our living room floor in the dead of winter to have a picnic. There is just something so unconventional about sitting on the floor or ground, eating out of a cute little basket. Today, while enjoying the beautiful weather, I was inspired to make a picnic lunch. It is so easy to pull together yourself as long as you have the fixings for a sandwich and some easy sides. Or, you could do something simple like crusty bread and jams and cheeses. Today, I decided on pasta salad and BLT's.
Nothing special, just from a box...
I was getting hungry while making these beauties.
In order to make it special, I did gussy up the sandwiches by wrapping them in wax paper, and tying curling gift ribbon around the paper. Then I curled it with the scissors. I also cut some wild roses from a nearby bush, and put them in a vase to add a touch of glamour to our picnic.
Our spoils look pretty and yummy
My boys are eagerly awaiting their food.
Remnants of a well had picnic...my husband and kids even took the dishes in the house for me.
In this round, the yard picnic definitly won. It is kind of nice proximity if you forget anything. However, I will still attempt the park picnic again. I'll just make sure to check the contents of the food bag next time. Better yet, maybe I will pack my own. Have a picnic today with someone special. It really is a fun way to brighten your day. Also, please let me know any fun picnic stories or suggestions in the comments. Linda
