With warm weather in the air and long summer days that promise to linger on far into autumn it’s the perfect time of year for a picnic. Picnics hold a nostalgic spot in everyone’s hearts whether they’ve ever been on one or not. And a picnic theme is a great idea for your company’s summer events, a relaxed wedding, or any social gathering.
A great way to host a picnic is to incorporate classic elements but with an updated twist. Just because it’s a picnic doesn’t mean it has to be full of Tupperware and Ziploc bags. It can still be as carefully executed as a black tie event.
Instead of a traditionally served meal consider having each of your guests pick up an authentic picnic basket. Each filled with Mis-matched china and flatware, perfectly accented with a vintage linen napkin of course!
More adventurous crowds will feel right at home sitting under shady trees on quilts that a reminiscent of their grandmothers’. But sitting on the ground is not a necessity of picnicking there’s always the classic picnic table dressed in a gingham linens or a beautiful exposed farm table, that’s rustic enough to remind every one of picnicking when they young. Or at least what they imagine it would have looked like. And with wooden benches (or our suffolk tufted benches) and chairs all of your guests will experience a lavish picnic that’s full of comfort and beauty.
And don’t forget dessert! Treat your guests to A seasonal dessert display of shortcakes, pies, and cobblers arranged on our vintage cake plates that would make Betty draper herself jealous. And the backdrop for all of this? A gleaming airstream trailer, creating the vintage picnic we all wish we grew up with!
