Picnic Perfect

10 Mar

Now that the weather is beginning to get warm, my thoughts are full of picnics and barbeques, and we’re sure yours might be too! This post includes some items from Abode that can help make your spring and summer picnic perfect.

French Wire Glasses

What makes an outdoor occasion easier is portability. These French wire glass holders are perfect in that way — they make lemonade for 6 easy to transport outside with one quick trip. Or you can use some of your own glasses on one of our distressed white trays. Personally, I love anything that can hold plates and glasses and make my life easier! A bride has actually opted to buy many of these French wire glasses for her wedding — great for the ceremony and then you get to keep them!

French Wire Cutlery Basket

Once again — portability! I love this French wire cutlery basket: it’s easy to pick up and bring outside for a barbeque. And once you set it down, it spins. Great for round tables. Obviously, you can put real cutlery in it…

Oh, and just so you know, the fantastic piece of fabric it is sitting atop is a linen & jute runner, also available at Abode.

Butterfly Plates

What’s a picnic without plates? These butterfly plates are so lovely and just the right size for finger foods and picnic fare. Bring them outside where it’s all birds and butterflies!

Metal Lunch Box

Always a classic; what brings back more childhood memories than a great-looking lunch box like this one? Pack your own personal picnic in it and head to the park!

Bird Feeder

I love this cast iron bird feeder because it’s perfectly sized for an outdoor table. Let the birds come to you!

Bird Cage Wire Planter

Speaking of birds, I love this bird cage wire planter. Fill it with a small topiary or some flowering vines and admire. I personally think it would be lovely with some heavenly blue morning glory or some fragrant sweet peas climbing up it. What better way to celebrate an outdoor feast than to gather around gorgeous flowers.

Flower Tea Light Candles

Last but certainly not least, candles always belong at a picnic (or at any meal for that matter!) Add some sparkle or romance to your outdoor eating with these lovely flower tea light candle holders. They’ll fit perfectly in the natural surrounding.
