Vagabond Picnic

For those of us living in the south, spring + early summer are prime times for outdoor dining. In preparation for the season, I've been restocking the picnic essentials while searching out unique ways to make the summer soirees just a bit more special. I find the best way to do that is by repurposing a few vintage finds to what I already have on hand.

This year's outdoor inspiration began with Terrain as soon as I came across their bamboo picnic supplies. I love the sustainability of bamboo products, not to mention the fact that they're so much more attractive than their plastic counterparts.

Taking my cue from the bamboo, I decided that this year's outdoor dining accessories would be chosen from products made from natural fibers.

This inspiration board is my perfect collection for the summer season, a cotton tablecloth + napkins, paper straws, and bamboo serving utensils. To mine, I incorporated some vintage by adding a set of aluminum Jell-O molds, all kept neatly stored in an antique leather suitcase.

The straps and interior shelving of the suitcase make the perfect storage space to hold all our picnic essentials.

A vagabond dinner so sweet and campy! Keeping the essentials packed and ready makes an impromptu picnic under a candlelit tree always an option ;)

Happy weekend!
