Essential #1: A Picnic Blanket with Waterproof Backing

A genuine leather carrier and four picnic stakes are conveniently included for a carefree outdoor date. This set also includes a genuine leather carrier and 4 picnic stakes!

Essential #3: Convenient Healthy, Delicious Food
If you are a Costco fan like me you will love these ultimate picnic meals. They are delicious and healthy, a perfect addition to your picnic. My first recommendation is the Cilantro Lime Shrimp (see picture below). This dish is a protein-packed, zero carbohydrate, a low-fat option that is light and perfectly paired with your favorite white wine!
You may want to add a few of these shrimp to my next recommendation which is the large Spinach Salad, again from Costco. Now for this dish, I am not a fan of a sweet salad (or sweet dressing), and because I am watching the carbs and sugar, I omit the dried cranberries and poppy seed dressing. All the ingredients are placed in rows, so opening the container and removing what you do not want is not as hard as it may seem. I also just bring along my own dressing, I do keep the poppy seed because my husband likes it!
Essential #4: A beautiful location
It looks as though our North Georgia weather is finally going to be warming up! Now would be the perfect time to plan a picnic for you and your family or your special someone! There are so many places to have your picnic here around Lake Lanier, and if you are not from Georgia as you look for the perfect location, keep in mind the beauty of nature and an isolated, private setting for the perfect picnic!
Did this week just fly by or was it just me? Must be all these online orders for Spring Break essentials?! I love that the Cambridge Travel Bag can be used for shopping, a fashionable diaper bag, and of course the all important spring break weekend getaway!
Perfect for your last minute getaways and toting your essentials on a flight, you can't go wrong with this fabulous Cambridge Travel Bag!
Now that spring is almost officially here, what will your decorating style be for 2018? When you think of Easter decorations many are so colorful from light pink to hot pinks, yellows, blues, and greens, but that certainly does not mean you have to decorate for Easter using bright colors. Deciding to decorate with a simpler approach, minimalist, if you may, can be a great way to change things up! I love how our modern farmhouse collection boasts a natural color scheme which is so calming and can be easily added to your existing decor. We also have the pastel decorations that everyone loves so much too, especially when you have little ones - children love those fun pops of colors!
