picnic.21What better way to celebrate these summer nights is with a picnic. So in celebration of one of my gillty pleasures here are my favorite picnic essentials. A picnic is a great first date, or even a fun girls night out. We love to serve cocktails in ball jars with paper straws and desserts in mason jars. Also, striped butcher twine comes in handy when packaging sandwiches. Last but not least, don’t forget about packing some outdoor games!
