Impromptu Picnic

On Friday it was finally a really nice summer night. We haven’t really been able to take advantage of eating outside and enjoying great weather so my husband and I got home from work and pulled together a last minute picnic and ran down to the beach.

We first laid down a blanket and then for a fun bit of pattern added a scarf. I have been loving scarves as fun table toppers. This one I got on clearance at Uniqulo while visiting NYC. If you keep your eye open scarves are a fun way to add spice to your table without the price tag!

Every picnic needs flowers. I thought these sunflowers were perfect – I love the bright contrast to the navy.

We made steaks and lobster tails at home, then packed them up and quickly ran to the beach. We didn’t feel like busting out the whole grill so this was a nice way to enjoy the outside without the fuss.

This was the same beach we did our Lake Michigan Pop Up Party. See it here.

It was such a beautiful night for a last minute picnic. We need to get in more before the summer is out!
