My indoor picnic starts with my linen and cotton patchwork runner. I've just recently had the itch to try quilting and this runner allowed me to use lots of scraps and to experiment.
I must say, I was rather proud of myself!
These natural jute placemat seemed the perfect choice to pair with the linen. Sitting atop the mats are my blue dotted dinner plates from West Elm. How about some more dots?
These cheery red dotted napkins were also a great find from West Elm a few years back. Oh...I've had these adorable blueberry ceramic napkin rings tucked in the back of a drawer for ages.
I found them at a little ceramic shop in Maine on a fabulous summer vacation some time ago. I'm so happy they finally made it out of the drawer!
Won't these bottles of Coke taste just fabulous in these colorful speckled glasses (Crate & Barrel, years ago)?
Just because...I made some little name tags to dress up the bottles.
There's no reason you can't bring nature indoors! Trader Joe's once again had the most gorgeous flowers. I chose the brightest bouquets I could find and plopped them into plain old canning jars.
So pretty! Is there anything missing? Well maybe just some pesky ants and annoying bees. I think having a picnic inside was a great idea after all. As always I will be visiting the following blog parties. Please join me!
