We really enjoy creating beautiful tablescapes here at Timeless Creations, but for this particular one we decided to go outside the norm a bit and create a picnic tablescape in the backyard! Sure we could have used our fancy dishes and brought some summertime into the house, but we have had such a beautiful summer here in Minnesota we couldn’t resist the temptation to go outdoors!
So in the evening underneath the shade tree in the backyard of Kristen’s house we created a beautiful and vibrant picnic-scape. A vintage crocheted tablecloth serves as a beautiful lightweight blanket. Vicki has always loved these old handmade crocheted items and her love is now rubbing off on me! They are just so pretty!
We used a neat wine crate from France as a small tabletop to hold some of our dishes. And one of my favorite trays on top holds those vibrant blue and green plates and my favorite wine glasses. Whats a warm summer evening without a little chilled wine?! Find that beautiful tray HERE. Glasses HERE, and Plates HERE.
An old wicker basket filled with a blanket and comfy pillows in case it gets chilly after watching the sunset. We get absolutely beautiful sunsets over the ridge here, and the backyard is the perfect spot to watch them.
A vintage picnic basket and an old English ironstone pitcher add the perfect little decor pieces for my picnic, but would also be staples for a real picnic! Both used for carrying your chosen picnic food and drink.
And to top it off, a bunch of pretty flowers to surround the scene! I love when spring comes so we can go pick up new flowers. It is so much fun to plant them and watch them grow as the summer goes on. Those pink double impatients (hanging) were new to me this year and I love them! Otherwise I love flowers that trail over the pots and spread their pretty colors.
The vintage olive bucket has seen many spots in my home! I love it to hold blankets inside, but now that I tried flowers in it, I have to admit I really like that look! This may have to be a staple on the porch each year, or maybe I could find an indoor plant for it? What do you think?
We are so happy that you have stopped by our pretty little picnic. We so enjoyed putting it together! Although I will admit I was wondering what my neighbors were thinking while I was setting it up and taking pictures! Haha! Don’t forget to continue on the blog chain by going to “2 Bees in a Pod” next, otherwise there are many more summer decor inspirations below.
