Happy Friday and almost Fourth of July, friends! It has been a hot minute since I had a summer picnic in the park and I forgot how fun it could be. Just throw some snacks and utensils into a picnic basket, grab some blankets and you’re all set. Perfect for an early evening date night or with friends!

I am all about that summer LWD and this is the prettiest one! My co-worker Jackie recently launched her own online boutique, All Out Chic Boutique and this dress immediately caught my eye. She has so many cute pieces, especially dresses for summer. How perfect is this dress for a little summer picnic fun? Be sure to use code FIRST15 for 15% off your first purchase!
Another summer picnic must-have is a good bottle of rosé, such as Summer Water Rosé. This light rosé wine is refreshing, with hints of melon, peach, rose and citrus. If you love a perfectly chilled rosé during the summer, this is a must-try! For a limited time, you can receive 4 bottles for just $29.95 plus free shipping! Now that’s a deal to cheers about!
Summer Water Rosé pairs perfectly with a yummy charcuterie board… and friends! Trader Joe’s is my go-to spot to create my own charcuterie and cheese boards. I can find an array of cheeses, meats, crackers, fresh fruit and dried fruits to incorporate.
The gorgeous Shelby of Styling Sunshine made a wonderful picnic partner– we had so much taking these photos! Cheers to a fab summer picnic!
Creating a photo-worthy picnic setup is so easy and can be done with things around your house! I borrowed a picnic basket from my mom (thanks mom!) and pulled some decor from around the house: blankets, pillows, candles and even a beautiful arrangement from Musing & the Maker, another co-worker who creates beautiful arrangements in upcycled vases!
Whether you’ll be having your own picnic or BBQ, I wish you all a fun and safe Independence Day! What are your picnic essentials?
