Summertime Picnic

With all our kiddos home this summer, we’ve been planning some outings in Wilmington (well…as soon as the sun decides to show up). One of my favorite places to visit – Airlie Gardens. Our local outdoor garden feels like a magical kingdom to our sweet toddler…and it is the perfect spot for a summer picnic.


When planning out our day adventure, I have a few picnic must-haves. Of course, I need a great blanket on which to throw all our food and (THREE) children. Still can’t believe that number.


  1. Perfect picnic blanket:The only towel/blanket/cloth I need in my life right now – anything from Fair Seas Supply Co. I am such a fan of the company’s products and commitment to sustainability. The colors and patterns are so cheerful – perfect for summer!
  2. Picnic bag: If you’re looking for a personal picnic tote, check out Modern Picnic. These sleek lunch totes double as a purse – the perfect addition to any look! For larger outings, I grab my large tote from National. It’s the perfect weight for carrying everything you need for a big family picnic!
  3. Cheerful sundress:What’s a summer picnic without a lightweight summer dress? Choose from one of my three go-to options for a breezy afternoon at Airlie. Which one is your favorite?
