Picnic Season Prep

DIYs for the perfect picnic! Need this as the summer gets started!

With summer starting and Memorial Day around the corner, picnic season is here! I found a few super cute picnic must-haves that you can make and use for the whole summer!

  1. The Perfect Picnic Blanket
    I plan on using my t-shirt quilt for picnics, but I LOVE this watermelon quilt by Suzy Quilts! It’s perfect for summer.
  2. Basket/ Tote
    I love the water bottle tote, which is perfect for beach trips!
    Here’s a pattern for an insulated tote, and you can use this all the time for grocery shopping!
  3. Anything Gingham…
    You can’t eat outside without gingham! Fortunately, Amazon lists a bunch of colors and check sizes of gingham…. pick out your favorite!
    Here’s my tutorial for napkins! This is a great sustainable option, and you won’t leave any trash around outside 🙂
  4. Plates and Utensils
    So you can’t sew them, but they’re cheap and perfect for outdoor dining.
    I love these disposable wooden utensils. Yes, disposable, but better than plastic.
    And here are some compostable/disposable wooden plates.

Are you ready for picnic season? What are some of your favorite DIY projects for summer dining?
