I am so excited to share my picnic party for the Everyday Party Magazine design challenge. I am so in love with how it turned out!!
This challenge was all about the gorgeous printables from Chicabug and DIY projects. I loved the vintage feel of the printables and I thought what goes better with vintage than paper bags of course!!
I headed down to my local dollar tree and bought a package of paper lunch bags for you guessed it $1. Then I cut my bags apart and ruffled them to create the perfect paper ruffles to accent my printables. I also used the lunch bags as well as a few grocery bags to create the paper fans for that amazing backdrop. I punched out some circles from the coordinating patterned paper and added some star shaped brads with ribbon to add some extra detention and detail to the fans.
Because I'm a mom of 4 boys and 3 of them are 5 and under, I am all about practical food that they will actually eat. There is nothing worse than spending a lot of time and energy on making food that your kids refuse to eat. So I went with the tried and true PB&J sandwich, a bag of chips and a fruit cup for lunch. I served them up in easy to carry lunch boxes adorned with paper fans. I told you i have 4 kids so they have to be able to carry their own food.
