Preppy Picnic

Warm weather means that spring picnic season is here! With spring and summer events like horse races, concerts and festivals, you're sure to be hosting a picnic soon. Of course, you don't need a special occasion or a special place to have a picnic. Almost any place can be transformed into a lovely retreat with the right details.

Here is some preppy pink and green inspiration for the perfect picnic...

Enjoy the pink blossoms on trees in your favorite spot with this romantic enclave. Isn't it amazing what you can do with a little bit of tulle?

A day at the beach is so much fun, especially when you have a set up like this one. So preppy and oh so classic.

Cute little box lunches are perfect for picnics and field trips. Pre-label special orders in advance and distribute individual orders quickly with these adorable pink picnic lunches. This lovely idea is from Martha Stewart, of course!

Why entertain indoors when it's a beautiful day? Celebrate al fresco! I can imagine a little tea or even an outdoor shower with this lovely arrangement. One of my favorite (and surprising) resources for fun home goods like these is ikea. Everything is so affordable and the colors are gorgeous.

A few ribbons and details turn a backyard picnic table into a summertime palace for pool princesses!
