Planning the Perfect Picnic at Home

With a rather unconventional spring this year, we are still finding ways to do our favorite activities from the comfort of home. In the spirit of gardening month, we wanted to pull together a little picnic. Whether you want to set up in your living room, a nook in your apartment, or a backyard if you have one, enjoy the magic of slowing down wherever you are. For us, this is a great way to put to use some of our favorite floral decor and extra ingredients in our cupboard.

Below is our guide to create the perfect picnic at home. As you know, picnics are fully customizable and should be an assortment of YOUR favorite things. We hope our guide inspires you to dig out your spring favorites and rediscover a beloved springtime activity in a new way at home.

Here's what you need:

A tablecloth or blanket of choice (florals make the perfect backdrop)

Vase of choice

Fresh flowers from the garden (or from the corner market)

Your favorite pitcher (fill with iced tea, infused water, or a beverage of choice)

Your favorite dessert plates

Your favorite dessert recipe (we're loving Nevena's Apple Tart)

A dessert serving platter or cake stand

Patterned napkins delicately folded (because details matter)

A floral outfit (give your sweats a break)
