Elegant Picnic #memorialday


Who says you can't use your fine china and crystal on a picnic or on your deck? Dig out that wedding china you haven't used since the holidays and have a dinner party on the deck or patio, or even a romantic picnic for 2.

Don't have china? Stop off at any thrift store and find some. Don't worry if they don't all match, that's part of the fun of entertaining is making it your own style. You can even find wine or champagne glasses at Dollar Tree for only $1 each. If they do get broken by chance, it's not really a big deal.

Even if this is a picnic, or an outdoor dinner party, it's your chance to pull things out of the cabinets and use them. You can mix your old and new items, use silver and gold together, and don't worry about everything matching. Don't have a white table cloth? Think about an old curtain, or even pick up one at the thrift store. This is a great way to show your personality while entertaining.
Add some of your favorite flowers, of if you forgot to pick them up, I love these silk hydrangeas. They look wonderful with your all white setting.
