We had a small picnic to celebrate Spring! The girls were on Spring Break last week and the weather was just gorgeous for a picnic!
The picnic was very simple and layedback. For the backdrop, I used a wall accent on a foam board that I purchased from Hobby Lobby for $10. The Wall accent is now on my daughter's bedroom wall. ;)
I also made a balloon banner to dress up the table. Balloons are an inexpensive way to bring colors to your party. For the cupcake toppers, I used scrapbook flowers that I found at Michael's for 50cents!!! Crazy, insane cheap right? I also found the plastic candy container with mini scoops at Michaels for 50 cents, too!!Don't you just love when you find a good bargain? ;)
I purchased the mini paper cupcake stands at the brand new and fabulous Petite Party Studio. What a cute store!! Love it!!
For snacks and treats, we had whole wheat turkey flower sandwiches, pigs in the blanket, chocolate covered strawberries, ants on a log(celery sticks with raisins), carrots, homemade red velvet cupcakes, M&Ms, chocolate kisses and cupcake pizzas. The kids played card games, climbed trees, blew bubbles, played in the playground, blew dandelions and also rested on the blankets.
The picnic was a wonderful way to celebrate Spring!
The girls really enjoyed spending the afternnon outside. One of my daughter's girlfriends said that the last time that she had a picnic was when she was four and that we need to do this more often! I couldn't agree more!!
I love when I can pull together a simple and affordable get together for my children and their friends!
