Fantasy Picnic Setting

Isn’t this picnic setting magical?  This would be so special for an anniversary or milestone birthday.  Or, just take the inspiration and set up a glamorous back yard picnic with friends!  Craft the vintage-style fans with old newspaper and ribbon to mimic “walls” in the outdoor space.  Use astro turf as a “rug” or “table cloth,” and gather some galvanized trays and buckets from the garden center, to fashion food pedestals.  Lay white paper doilies to line the trays.  Add the final touch with old bottles & vases filled with wild flowers.  Congratulations!  You’ve just created the perfect fantasy picnic setting!
