GOOD LOOKS - Picnic for Mothers Day

picnic time

Have you thought about what you will do for your mom this Mothers Day? I love the idea of a picnic (and even if the weather is not playing along on the 11th - plan for one indoors). There is a lot to be said for spreading a blanket on the living room floor! My choice of tableware? Our Blue Party Porcelain range - made of paper would you believe (i.e. read: easy washing up).

In the Easter holidays, I went to a wine farm for a picnic under the trees - it was so lovely! Here are some great tips I picked up:
- In your basket, pack the usual water, ice tea, but add in a flask with your Mom's preferred warm cup of tea or coffee - perfect to have after the meal.

- In addition to serving a variety of salads (who knew Coronation Chicken was so amazing!) and smoked fish and cold meats - include a baguette and a few varieties of cheese - love this "portable" cheese board in blue!

- Make up a separate little "happy meal" for the kids: juice box, sandwich and a bag of sweets. My girls loved having their own little picnic box.
- Dessert was the best! Layered cheesecake in a jam jar! YUM!
- Last but not least, as a gift and decor piece in one, this teapot vase fits the bill perfectly!
