We’re gettin’ back to our regular programming this week so let’s start off with…
Mayra is joining us today to share a fabulous take on one of our newest collections from The Market! Before she takes over, I wanted to remind you to cast your vote for the Crew’s “Head-to-Head Team Challenge” and enter to win a signed copy of the delicious Push-up Pops book by Courtney Dial Whitmore. Click here to do both!
Without further ado, here’s Mayra…
What better way to celebrate the end of School Year than with a Picnic?!!
I styled a small Picnic using the Piggy Bank Parties’ Picture Your Future Collection and inspired by my own kids! With one in Elementary, one in Middle School and one in her Junior Year of High School, I wanted to create something that would be great for all ages. I used a basic color palette of blue, red and khaki inspired by my daughter’s high school band colors of red and blue. This would be perfect for next year when she’s graduating!
From the Picture Your Future Collection I used the Folded Party Cards to create place cards and cute messages. The menu—which serves in the collection as an invitation as well—included all the goodies for them to choose from.
I bagged some sandwiches and used store-bought products for our Picnic Lunch.
I used dishes and items that I already had for decor, picked up some flowers and styled a little self serve table. The plates and cups I picked up at Target for this Summer because I love having plastic and melamine dishes for the kids for all the Summer activities; however, disposable in solid colors works just as great and it’s easier on the clean up!
The yogurt shots are made with vanilla yogurt, blackberry syrup and I used strawberries and golden berries to top them. The small spoons are from Party City’s Mini Appetizers Set.
The little individual Nutella products—which I happen to think are super cute—were purchased at an airport on my Spring Break Vacation. They came in as a ‘”weekly pack”—one for each day of the week!
Enjoy your Summer Break and congrats to all of the students on another great year!
