Bask in the summers with Our Lovely Backyard Picnic Setup

July is here bringing in the sweet summer sunshine, blooming flowers, and the perfect environment to head outside for an enchanting outdoorsy picnic. Like you, we also had been waiting impatiently for this blissful season to arrive to be able to breathe in the refreshing air, soak up the warmth of the summery sun and enjoy some quality time with our loved ones in a scenic setting. Even though a sandy venture by the shore or picnicking in the public picnic garden is not a wise choice in this age of social distancing, but we just couldn’t wait any longer. So we decided to set up a lovely picnic spread by the pool in our backyard for the perfect escape from the monotonous stay-at-home routine. After all, we all deserve a little joy after being cooped up inside for almost the entire spring. In this blog, you’ll learn how easy it is to transform your backyard into an exciting picnic spot while still following all the safety guidelines to keep your loved ones safe and sound!

Picnic Spread

Because we wanted to create a genuine outdoor picnic ambiance, choosing the right picnic blanket was something that we gave plenty of thought to. Since we were also after convenience and practicality, we decided to repurpose a trendy picnic tablecloth into a groundsheet, and it worked like a charm! Made from high-quality and durable polyester fabric with the statement checkered pattern— our chic green and white gingham checkered linen spread out under a shady tree elegantly matched with the fresh and lush grass underneath, augmenting the garden picnic feel to a whole new level. However, if you are all about vibrant contrasting hues that will add a burst of flamboyance to your settings, you can use our red and white gingham tablecloth for a classic yet perky charm or if you are planning a small picnic party with your quarantine pod and some of your closest friends to quench your longing for them, you can go for a spacious seating area with a couple of different colored picnic blankets, elevating your picnic setup up by a few colorful notches while also adhering to the social distancing rule. This makeshift and lightweight outdoor picnic blanket will surely redefine the way you shop for picnic rugs and is going to save you from the hassle of carrying that not so comfortable and heavy old picnic blanket around with you.

Flatware

In order to keep things casual with a hint of glam and elegance, choosing the right dinnerware that isn’t flimsy like paper utensils can end up being quite a daunting task. But don’t fret—you can always look for premium disposable flatware on Tableclothsfactory.com that will certainly never turn out to be a disappointment. We decided to use our disposable white plates and bowls to stylishly dish out the delectable salads, pies, cakes, and all the other homemade picnic food which made clean up after the picnic truly a breeze. Meanwhile, to display the scrumptious finger snacks and petit fours that are easy to pick and eat after a swim in the pool or amidst the exciting picnic games and activities, we decided to allocate a spot on our picnic spread for a beautiful and intricately designed gold metal tiered cupcake stand. We also decided to make room for a few decorative gold metal trays on the spread to place all the fresh fruits-- diversifying the food options from rich and decadent treats to some much healthier snack options for an ultimate alfresco experience. If you want a cheaper alternative—we recommend using our fancy disposable serving trays to add a bit of pizzazz while still staying within your budget.

Moreover, to perch on the refreshing ice tea clear tumblers, we opted for our oval crystal beaded trays for a coherent appeal. However, if you find yourself leaning towards a countryside style picnic setup, using our natural wooden slices in varying sizes is something we have tried numerous times to infuse a rustic touch into our setups. Whether you decide to follow our example of dinnerware or not, don’t forget about accommodating your guests with individual plates, cutlery, and napkins for a safe and hygienic approach. For example, we decided on our wooden plates, natural birch wood cutlery, and paper napkins from our eco-friendly tableware range to make our backyard garden picnic an even greener affair.

Additional Decor Accessories

Once all our basics were covered, we decided to spruce up our picnic spread with a gorgeous floral display to match with the scenic and idyllic surroundings around us. In order to make sure that we won’t be left with unattractive wilted blooms as the day went by under the blazing heat, we settled on our life-like silk flowers to enrich our setup. A mix of plush pastel-colored peonies, silk daisies, and hydrangea bunches is what we used to bedeck our natural wooden planter box, you can also use your wicker picnic basket after emptying it out (so you have one less thing to carry). To perk things up a bit more, we let our creativity shine and decided to finish off our picnic decor by adorning the tree above the spread with calla lily fairy lights and we also dropped some artificial cream and pink peonies and hydrangeas in one of the gold metal trays for a striking exotic addition.
