A Whimsical Backyard Picnic Setup to Swing into summer

With the sun shining at its brightest and the birds twittering around, the sweet summer season is on its peak! So now's the perfect time to get outside, bask in the afternoon sun, and cherish all the things this beautiful season has to offer. And there is no better way to do that than having a picnic to make some great memories that will surely last a lifetime. Even though venturing into the great outdoors is not really an option right now, alfresco dining and a good old summer picnic in your very own backyard is certainly not off the table. Have you been longing for a day under the blue sky after being cooped up inside your home for almost the entire spring? We had been yearning for it too, so we mustered up a wonderful and elegant picnic setup by the backyard pool to shake off those gloomy quarantine blues. Read on and discover how exactly we managed to pull off a fascinating picnic spread while still following all the recommended safety precautions.

Picnic Spread

When it comes to setting up a picnic in your grassy backyard or porch or any other flat surface for that matter, it’s wise to get things rolling by choosing the perfect picnic blanket or picnic tablecloth. Using linens that are made of durable and high-quality materials and are versatile enough to be used multiple times is surely our preference. Thus, we decided to give our premium polyester tablecloths a shot and boy, did it work! Since the gingham pattern resonates perfectly with picnic decor, we chose to unfurl a trendy green and white round checkered linen on a grassy area under the tree, in case the sun decided to blaze relentlessly, for a chic flair transforming the backyard into a lovely picnic spot. However, if you are all about traditional color combinations, you can go for our red and white gingham tablecloth or if you are inviting some of your closest friends and family over for a small picnic party just because you have missed them dearly during this lockdown situation, you can elevate your settings up a notch and use a couple of different vibrant hued picnic blankets for a bigger seating arrangement while also maintaining the recommended physical distance. This makeshift and handy picnic blanket is surely the epitome of convenience and practicality all bundled up in one to save you from the hassle of searching the ideal, lightweight groundsheet that serves the purpose flawlessly.

Flatware

In order to keep things casual with a touch of sophistication and elegance, we decided not to settle on those not so sturdy paper utensils and instead we opted for our disposable white flatware to stylishly dish out the scrumptious homemade picnic food, salads, pies, and cakes, for easy cleanup after the picnic. At the same time, because a picnic spread is synonymous with finger foods and delectable one bite snacks that are easy to pick and just eat amidst all the fun games and ebullient activities, we made room for a gorgeous gold metal tiered cupcake stand on our spread and a couple of decorative gold metal trays to display some fresh fruits for a healthy snack option for an ultimate alfresco experience. You can also use our disposable serving trays if you are looking for a much cheaper alternative.

Moreover, to perch on the cold coffee or iced tea tumblers, we used our crystal beaded trays for a cohesive appeal. If you find yourself leaning more towards a rustic style setup, our natural wooden slices are also fit for the intended job. Whether you decide to follow our example of dinnerware or not, don’t forget to accommodate your guests with individual dinnerware for a safe and hygienic experience. Our wooden plates and cutlery from our stunning eco-friendly tableware collection are what we used to make our backyard garden picnic an even greener affair.

Additional Decor Accessories

Because our surroundings were scenic and idyllic with lush grass and greenery and water in the pool to relax by, it was only fitting that we kept the theme going and pepped up our sensational picnic setup with a flamboyant floral display for a whimsical burst. In order to make sure that the flowers don’t die down under the scorching sun, we didn’t look any further than our glorious selection of artificial flowers to stylishly bedeck our spread. Most of the pastel-colored peonies, silk daisies, and hydrangea bunches were arranged in a natural wooden planter box—you can also empty out your wicker picnic basket or opt for some sleek clear gold rimmed glass vases and creatively embellish it with our lifelike blooms for striking floral flair.

To add to the exotic floral charm, we also decided to finish off our picnic decor by dropping some artificial cream and pink peonies and hydrangeas in one of the metal serving trays. In case you plan to stay out till late evening, we highly recommend you complement these plush flowers by dangling our calla lily fairy lights from the tree above your spread. With the enchanting display of flowers, the ones dancing on the meadow and the artificial ones on your picnic blanket, these floral LED string lights are a lovely addition to the otherwise green leafy tree.
