Picnic in the Park . . .

What's a more dreamy past time than a lazy day lounging park side on a blanket padded by cool tufts of grass?  Not much.  So ditch that kitchen and plan to dine alfresco this weekend . . . once you have the proper gear lined up, you will be all set for a relaxed afternoon under your favorite shade tree or the prettiest outdoor concert under the stars.

First, a little inspiration . . .




Love me a picnic engagement shoot for those foodie couples. . .





Even better?  An autumn one at that . . .


Blessed with a beach nearby?


A little vintage charm . . .


Picnic baskets can cost a small fortune, but here are a few affordable Juneberry Lane picks that are both wallet-friendly and sure to keep you smiling for years to come.

I received my basket years ago as a gift from a dear friend for my birthday...and I just love pulling it out in the summer and stocking it full of my favorite treats.  Take a look at some goodies out there . . .


(Find it at Target for $71.99)

(Available at Walmart for $54.99)

(Get yours at Sears for $63.99)

(Also at Sears-and includes the BBQ tools! for $99.99)

And how about this amazing contraption designed for the most outdoorsy wine lover . . .

(available at Pottery Barn for $19.99)

Sheer perfection!  If you are getting married and working on getting a registry, don't forget to get a good basket on your list...a romantic day outdoors will keep the romance going for years to come and you'll never regret it!!
