A Lovely Day for a Picnic

In honor of my dear friends Christian and Sara's birthdays, spring, and friendship, I gave a picnic.

I am quite sure I had more fun planning it than they did at the picnic.

The menu consisted of:
Cold Spinach Quiche with Fresh Tomatoes
Cheese Ball Spread on French Bread with Fresh Cucumbers
Carob Cupcakes with Butter Frosting
Snickerdoodle Croissant Cookies
Iced Sweetened Mint Tea

I made bunting. I think I'm going to hang it up in my room, now. If I can ever untangle it from the snarl it got into as we quickly took it down before the rain. :)

As I was making the food, I kept saying to my brothers, "Oh, this is so cute! Isn't it?"

They didn't really get it.

I was frightened it would rain, but it was beautiful, beautiful. Everything was so perfect and lovely. All of the dishes were real and beautiful, and they made me feel so elegant. And that little picnic hamper makes me feel like I have a yellow bicycle (which I do, now!!!) and live in England.

It was the perfect picnic.

(And that is my Frock by Friday frock. I want to do some alterations yet, though.)


  1. Aww, it looks like you girls had fun! :)


  2. Unlike your brothers, I completely understand how absolutely ADORABLE the food is. In fact the entire day looked perfectly adorable!
