It’s time to break out the picnic baskets, colorful throw blankets, and your prettiest melamine plates and flatware. It’s picnic season! Stylish blanketside gatherings with friends are a must this time of year. It’s just a matter of putting together all of the right elements to throw a super chic outdoor event.
For a unique backdrop to all of the yummy food you’ll be serving, gather your favorite scarves, pillows and blankets to create an eclectic lounge area. We love the idea of mixing cultural pieces like kilim pillows, suzani blankets and a few Persian rugs for a colorful display.
For picnic parties, think about bringing in unique seating. Cushions are wonderful and comfy for guests and poufs are perfect too. Look for poufs in summer shades like bright white, pastel pink or sunshine yellow for an unexpected touch.
Layer a few of your favorite rugs to define the picnic area. Don’t worry about a matching design or color palette. A funky mix of bright area rugs with geometric designs will create a modern and vibrant display.
And if you’re feeling daring, put up a tent to create an intimate space for a casual luncheon. This is the perfect spot for a romantic picnic for two.
