3 day weekend coming up (whoohoo!), what do you have planned for Labor Day weekend? I was thinking that this is the last holiday of the summer season…so we must take advantage of it! Since the weather is cooling down, I figured that a picnic would be the perfect way to celebrate the long weekend while getting some fresh air, warm weather, and being out in nature. Plus, it’s a great way to spend time with loved ones!

Continue below to see some of my favorite products that you might enjoy packing for a picnic, along with some great picnic links to inspire you!

I love an intimate picnic, with delicious food and treats that you and your guest(s) will enjoy along with little touches that make it personal and special (a great opportunity to put your lovely packaging skills to use!) This is a time for you to spend the day in the great company of your friends + family, surrounded by a beautiful environment!
