Monday Mood: Picnic Perfect

Today I am in the mood for a picnic, especially because it is Memorial Day. Summer is the perfect time to whip up a simple salad, grab a bottle of lemonade, call a few friends and meet at the park for a picnic.

The first place to start for a picnic is a comfy blanket…this one even zips up for easy carrying! Next, keep your salad chilled and ready to serve with this 3-piece salad bowl. Classic red gingham napkins are essential for picnic-ing! And you can store fresh fruit, pasta salad or crackers in stylish translucent take-out cartons.

Picnic Time!

I’ve always wanted a traditional picnic basket. The one pictured above can be customized into any color! Ice mats will keep your food chilled and won’t melt like ice cubes. Don’t forget some festive plates with a rockin’ pattern! If you’re bringing a bottle of lemonade or wine along, use this Jet Bag to keep it from leaking.

Let’s be honest – it’s rough getting back into the swing of things on Mondays. I hope that my weekly Monday Mood posts will give you a little something to look forward to this summer. Stay tuned for the fun! Happy Memorial Day!

Love food. Love self. Love life.
