Mother's Day Picnic

With winter finely ending and spring emerging, I’ve been itching to go on a picnic lately. My husband says to me “Are you Yogi Bear, or something?” because evidently I’m always suggesting that we go on a picnic. He thought that was sooo funny… (insert eye rolling here).

But who can blame me? It’s 75 degrees and sunny! Maybe it’s a girl thing? So I’m thinking that a picnic would the perfect treat for Mother’s Day. It doesn’t even have to involve cooking. Just grab some good cheeses, fruit and delicate water crackers, maybe a crusty baguette. Add a blanket, a good book and an excellent bottle of wine. You’re all set for a relaxing afternoon outside.

Here are some great finds from Crate and Barrel if you want to pull out all of the stops. I really love the ‘Steady Stick’ holders for the wine bottle and glasses. No spillage here!

I hope all of the mothers out there have a great Mother’s Day… and a picnic of your own. Maybe you need to forward this post to your family. Subject line “Hint Hint”!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!

    I know it’s after Mother’s Day, but I’m thinking this could be good outing for Memorial Day. The weather is supposed to be nice here. :)
