Summer is such a short season where I am from that we love to pack in as many events outdoors as we can before school starts ( and before there is snow on the ground AGAIN)!

I have teamed up with Urban Barn to share my simple summer picnic ideas with you. One of my favourite ways to spend time outdoors is to have a family and friends picnic. I love getting creative  and having fun with the menu and decor. I am currently loving all shades of blue this summer, and love the idea of color coordinating your picnic accessories. To make sure your picnic is comfortable for your guests I like to have a couple throw pillows around for people to sit on, and some outdoor chairs for those who do not want to lounge on the ground. A sturdy pouf or two are  great for serving your simple and delicious  menu on, and can also be used for seating.

I am loving all the creative and BEAUTIFUL charcuterie board ideas on pinterest right now like this one from Freutcake Blog. They are so simple to throw together and are truly stunning and will add to the atmosphere of your picnic. I like to make one really simple recipe so I have time for one that will take a bit more time like these homemade donuts from The Worktop Blog. Add some homemade lemonade and you are all set to wow your guests!

I hope you enjoyed my Simple Summer Picnic ideas. Thank you to Urban Barn for sponsoring this post!
