Summer is right around the corner, and we have outdoor living on our minds! If you want to take advantage of the season and do a little al fresco dining, a picnic is always fun. With this month's Color Adventures (pink and blue), here are a few tips for creating a fancy picnic to make it extra special...

1. Set the stage for your picnic. Create your base with a thin rug or large blanket. Then, add in soft and cozy touches like faux fur blankets and a ton of pillows.

2. Mix paper with glass. Keep your clean up easy with paper plates, paper napkins, and disposable wooden spoons, but mix in a bit of glass for a bit of class!

3. Add a special touch to old pillows or cushions. We took simple pillows and added some pom-pom fringe to give them some new life!

4. Bring flowers! You can bring some blooms to your picnic to add a little extra decor. Or simply bring them to give to your friends. Everyone loves getting flowers...especially when it's unexpected.
