One of my favorite things about summer is having picnics with my family. The weather right now in Ohio is perfect for them!
Ever since I got this darling teepee from my friends at Dolly and Frances, I’ve been dreaming up a fun picnic in the back yard. I finally put one together for my little girl and her best friend. They are the cutest!
For this summer picnic I brought out some of my daughters favorite dolls, books, blankets and pillows. Nothing fancy, but it makes it look so cozy, doesn’t it? I wanted to jump right in and sip on some raspberry lemonade. ;)
I ordered the darling pillows, blankets, plates and cups from Shutterfly. They added the perfect touch to our summer picnic.
For lunch I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the crust off the bread and skin off the cucumbers. Super simple way to dress things up a bit for parties, showers or even a summer time picnic. I also placed some fresh berries in party cups and added a sugar cookie with sprinkles to make things extraordinary.
The girls were in heaven! I loved watching them play and giggle the whole time while they snacked on their plates.
Here’s the free designs if you’d like to make your own. Or feel free to use them how you’d like. Just please use them for personal use only. :)
- Polkadot pattern (used on plates and blanket)
- Striped pattern (used on cups and pillow)
- Heart design (used on pillow)
To make the pillows that I have shown above head over to the Shutterfly home decor line and select the pillows and then ‘photo gallery.’ Then you can upload the saved image from your computer and place into the design. Arrange the image how you would like, but do not add text. Preview the design and then hit order. It’s super easy. I love how mine turned out!
So let’s hear it …what’s your favorite thing about summer?! Are you a picnic lover too?
