A Picnic Inspired by the French Countryside

There's nothing better in the summertime than a quaint picnic in the park surrounded by your favorite company. Inspired by the French countryside in June, we have curated a list of picnic essentials to help bring your next picnic from basic to blog worthy.

Finding Inspiration

Dewy grass, a bright blue sky, and a warm late morning glow create the perfect atmosphere and color palette for a summer garden picnic. When planning an outdoor picnic, find an underlying inspiration that will carry throughout your entire summer soirée. In the summer, we are inspired by all things natural and from the garden—fruits and vegetables straight from the vine, freshly picked wildflowers, and organic textures and colors.

The Essentials

Start with a base and begin creating layers. Gorgeous velvet tasseled, outdoor-friendly (spill and rainproof too!) pillows from Wendy Jane by Gabby Home create a level of comfort and a touch of elegance.

Arrange your luxurious spread of bites, fresh from the farmer's market, on an amazing salvaged oak charcuterie board from Rough Sawn Detroit. Spread your fresh preserves, patés, and soft cheeses with amazing spreaders handcrafted from natural seashells.

Rustic woven placemats, handmade by native artisans with the tropical pandan plant, add a natural element to your setup. Vintage appetizer plates by Heinrich add contrast to the natural serving elements.

Your fresh squeezed juices and bubbly beverages can be served from a glass decanter with a mango wood ball lid, and enjoyed in an outdoor tumbler like these amazing textured glasses with a removable seagrass wrapping.

French made Jean Dubost Laguiole ivory flatware, inspired by a shepherd's tool, adds a touch of the French countryside.

Add a little bit of warmth and romance with a hurricane lantern. Its terracotta base makes it a suitable candle for an outdoor affair.

Add Your Personal Touches

Enjoy the moment with your favorite company or indulge in an afternoon alone. The atmosphere is complete with your favorite market flowers and fresh herbs to create a natural summer aroma. Don't forget a bluetooth speaker to stream your favorite playlist of background music and embrace in the most fabulous summer day!
