backyard picnic party

I’ll be the first one to invite you over for charcuterie and a bottle of wine, but lately I’ve been craving a bit more out of our summer soirees. I’m thinking a sophisticated picnic is just what I’m craving. Check out some of these inspiring events.

Layered rugs and pillows make these picnic spots cozy, while simple greenery on the tabletops create a relaxed feel.

So what do all of these have in common? They all include a rug or blanket as the base and then layer with lots of throw pillows. While the traditional picnic may not include a table, I think it elevates the look and makes it easier to eat a real meal. Next we’ve got to add plenty of fresh greenery, and as I’ve selected a green and aqua color scheme, something along the lines of these cool-hued succulents will do nicely. Style some great candle holders and pretty dinnerware around the arrangements and you’ve got yourself a party!
