HOW TO CREATE AN ELEGANT PICNIC

LOCATION

Pick a sunny location that will allow you to soak in the last bit of the sun’s rays. Consider before sunset at the beach or on a grassy lawn.

SERVING

Forgo plastic serving pieces and utencils and incorporate actual plates and flatware. This takes the picnic idea of yesterday into a new level of sophistication.

SETTING

Even though you might be surrounded by nature that does not mean that flowers should be overlooked. Incorporate the landscape into a bouquet whether it be wildflowers like (chamomile or Queen Anne’s Lace) or the season’s last hydrangeas clipped from your own backyard.
