Summer Picnics; Upcycled

While it maybe a little hot this time of year for  a picnic in the desert, most of the country is having perfect outdoor dining weather.  I love the thoughts of eating out in the sun, I can't think of anything that says summer more.  Watermelons, checker print table clothes, giggling children and splashing water from a sprinkler what more could a good American girl want?  Every day is a great day for a celebration and here are some wonderful items to help make your summer picnic the best.

These are great! We just got a new picnic table so we can dine outside. Living in Maine, it's almost never too hot to eat outdoors!

We enjoy picnics in the park all summer long. I usually take a small cooler with us and grab a few Subway hoagies. I need to find a cute picnic basket to carry our stuff in. Thanks for sharing your finds.
