A Patriotic Picnic


Picnics are always such fun! Whether you’re headed to the beach, a park, or even your own backyard, it’s a nice break from the everyday routine. With the Fourth of July nearly here, we’re planning our holiday and at the top of our fun plans is a great little Fourth of July picnic with our family and friends. We’ve got a delicious menu set, including Baked Crescent Sandwiches, Garden Pasta Salad, Strawberry Basil Lemonade, Baked Beans, and more.

Now we’re planning how to make this picnic a little more patriotic than others. We love the classic red gingham tablecloth, but we’ve decided to add some pretty blue napkins sprinkled with little white stars. We found a pretty little white wicker picnic basket set with blue and white striped melamine plates, silverware, and clear acrylic glassware. We’re also opting for some patriotic picks to keep our sandwiches together. But which should we choose—cute little flags or fun foil firecrackers?

Lastly, be sure to bring some games along! Whether it’s a wiffle ball and bat, a football, some cards, or a Frisbee, games are a surefire way to bring up the fun level.

So how will you be celebrating Independence Day? With a picnic or in some other way? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
