Hello there National Picnic Day ~ one of our fave annual “holidays” that gives us an excuse (as if we need one!) to celebrate. And celebrate outdoors we will; picnics and summer entertaining brings out the spontaneous boho gypsy in us. A playful mixing of vintage and new, pattern on pattern, and bits and pieces all mixed together seems to be the right picnic spirit.
We enjoy how the picnic spirit and aesthetic brings in a breezy relaxed planning of simple and high quality food and tabletop ingredients. The picnic style we’re loving is a mixed exuberance of hand dyed linen layered with casually organic style china to global style trays.
Here are some of our fave outdoor party looks and how we become free spirits as the warm weather takes over.
