I love this time of year for lazy picnics at the parks or even casual pull out a blanket and have a spontaneous picnic in the back yard. It’s also the time of year for long weekends as there are so many pubic holidays in Germany in May and June. This week will be another short week and the weather prognosis looks glorious, so I’m already planning some outdoor eating for the weekend.
Here are some fun picnic products to set you right for an afternoon or evening of entertainment. As usual, I’ve styled it in gorgeous neutrals plus a splash of color to two…..
