Sweet Summer Picnic

Nothing says summertime like a picnic, whether it’s on a friend’s lawn, a sandy stretch of beach, or even your own living room floor! Picnics are a state of mind, after all, and a great excuse to kick off your shoes and relax with a frosty lemonade and a killer menu of handheld treats. Since the Fourth of July is all about the entertainment overhead–hello, rockets red glare!–we think it’s the ultimate picnic holiday, so we’ve put together the ultimate picnic menu for the occasion. Check out the spread below for info on how to get the look, the menu, and all the items shown below (available from many of our REstyleSOURCE partners). Happy Fourth to all!

Who says you have to bust out the same old paper plates and plastic utensils just because you’re dining al fresco? Raise your backyard picnic game to new levels with these white “Heritage” plates from Pom Pom at Home, charming silver-plated flatware by Cake Vintage, and a couple of frosty lemonades in milk bottles with cheery, patriotic red & white striped straws.

The Inspiration?

This casual gathering is all about relaxing and taking time with family and friends–to enjoy the fireworks, each other’s company, and a fantastic menu–with little hints of elegance sprinkled around here and there. A sturdy indoor/outdoor rug from Dash & Albert in warm neutrals is subtly flag-inspired with its wide stripes. Nothing could be more luxurious than soft, cool-to-the-touch linen, which makes these embroidered linen napkins, runners, and enormous carry-all tote the perfect choice for our picnic.
