Is it just us, or is all this indoor time making summer fly by? With so many hours spent at home, mostly sitting on our couches, or at our new WFH makeshift desks, we started thinking, how can we soak up those summer rays while hanging out with friends and family AND still staying safe? That's when we thought…let's pack a picnic! We picnic anywhere and everywhere and always picnic pretty! Picnic at your neighborhood park, your own backyard, or drive to the beach. Invite a few friends, a couple of family members, or stick to only those in your household bubble. Big or small, picnics are a great way to get outside and spend time with loved ones. To make picnic packing easy, we compiled the ultimate guide to all of the goodies you will need – blankets, baskets, plates, silverware, and of course, the FOOD. With these simply elegant essentials, you will always be ready to picnic perfect.

Polka dots, Polka dots everywhere! Polka dots are definitely in style! From polka dot invitations to retro polka dot straws to polka dot party decorations to polka dot apparel. Use dots as the main theme for your next celebration or just incorporate a few here and there for a stylish pop of color and party pizazz. We like polka dots for birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, Bat Mitzvah and Sweet Sixteen/ Quinceanera celebrations, ladies night out gatherings, and even retirement parties since they add a splash of youthfulness sometimes needed as co-workers enter a new phase of life.
Every time we look at this page all we think is so, so cute!!!!!
