"All American" Backyard Picnic-Style Shoot

I have more summer party inspiration to share with you!  This backyard picnic shoot from Tiny Water Photography is loaded with amazing ideas that you can incorporate for 4th of July weekend or all summer long.  Vintage suitcases, cute paper details, and a fabulous cookies & cream dessert table make this design special.
Some of my favorite ideas employed on the cookies & cream table are:
  • Keep the sweets simple by offering a few cookie flavors, ice cream, milk, and berries.
  • Unique “bottle” flags around the neck of the bottle.
  • The milk bottle “necklaces.”
  • Tiny paper fan picks placed in the berry dishes.
  • Suitcases used as risers, and to display drinks.
All these thoughtful details make this an interesting display.
More great ideas from this shoot:
  • Set up colorful displays to hold snacks and photo props.
  • Serve snack bags or cones from a small wagon.
  • Fill tiny baskets with berries or candies and use it to display place cards.
  • Create a photo backdrop by hanging fabric in different, but coordinating patterns.
I’m sure there is something wonderful you can take away from this gorgeous display!  Say hello to Summer!
