Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Picnic

Well July is almost upon us. Can't believe how fast the summer goes...AHHHHH!!! I hope everyone is having a good summer so far. Have many of you gone on that picnic yet? We actually haven't gone on one yet, but hopefully one of these days. 

The Fourth of July is coming up real soon so there will be lots of picnicking going on are you supplied with picnic supplies? Why not bring back the "good ole days" of picnicking with some vintage picnic supplies from some Etsy shops. Here are a few ideas for you.....

Of course you have to have the traditional picnic basket and I think this wooden one from AnotherSkyVintage shows the traditional wooden basket. 

Then of course you have to have the picnic utensils and plates to eat all the good food on. fifisfinds has this set of plates and utensils that will fit just fine in that picnic basket. 

Whether you sit on the ground or are sitting at a picnic table you will need a picnic tablecloth. Over at Christinasroom you can find this great traditional picnic tablecloth.

Now...if you are like me and getting too old to sit on the ground at these picnic outings (LOL!) you will need a couple of chairs to sit on. 3sisterstreasures has a couple of picnic chairs that you can use while all the kids are sitting on the ground! :)

So....get those picnic baskets filled and throw everything into to car and get out to that picnic!

Have fun!
