About two weeks ago, I was finally able to work on a little project I've been having in my mind for so long and which had been on my list for future summer projects for quite a while: Flo drove me (and four huge boxes of supples, food and photo props) to the countryside where I prettily set up a picnic. :)
I had been preparing decoration in advance, so there were colorful pompoms hanging from the trees and I also had brought handmade cake toppers and other pretty details to make the picnic look extra pretty.
You know that I love color concepts and this time, I decided to combine pink / rose with turquoise and yellow (a color combination that I use quite often, because those colors belong to my favorites).
We were having bagels with fresh rocket salad, goat cheese, pine nuts, a homemade sauce and tomatoes.
I also made fresh lemonade with raspberries, lemon and mint and of course there can't ever be a summer picnic without water melon pieces on a stick. :)
We had to wait a while until the sun went deeper so that I was able to take better photos without too harsh contrasts, but there are worst things than waiting on a perfect summer field with the smell of flowers, the sound of buzzing bees, the sun tickling your skin and a delicious picnic waiting for you. :)
Another thing that I made were fruit sticks, there's hardly anything more refreshing and more colorful.
I was super in love with the little picnic scenerey that I set up on that super sunny Sunday.
One of my fave summer desserts ever are fruits in a jar with mascarpone & yoghurt cream on bisquits.
Super yummy! The recipe will be coming, soon! :) Another thing that I made were lemon-vanilla cupcakes. I'm usually not so much into baking, but these ones turned out way better than I had expeced (recipe also coming soon) and I loved how they looked with my little handmade lemon toppers made from cardboard.
After I had taken all the photos for this blogpost, we had a super relaxing picnic and enjoyed all the good food, the perfect location and this great late summer afternoon! :) I'm super satisfied with how this setting has turned out and I'm super in love with all the little details and colors!
What do you think?
I never thought that preparing such a picnic for taking good photos would be so much effort, any food table being set up at home is way more relaxing, but when looking at those petty photos, it was definitely worth the effort! :)
Happy Sunday (maybe with a picnic? :))!
When I started planning the picnic, I wanted to include pretty paper dishes and asked Birgit of partyerie if she was interested in a little cooperation. :) So the following items were kindly sponsored by her so that I could include them into my picnic project and show them to you in this blogpost:
Turquoise honey combs: c/o partyerie
Dotted paper plates: c/o partyerie
Striped paper cupcake cups: c/o partyerie
Turquoise and white striped paper straws: : c/o partyerie
Thank you again for providing me with those pretty things! :)
If you are looking for pretty party supplies and decoration for your next food table, wedding or birthday party, you'll find everything in Birgit's shop. My own wishlist is way too long because of all the pretty items which make an ordinary event extra special with regard to dcoration. :)
