The Perfect Picnic Basket

Picnics are the best thing about summer except maybe for popsicles. We eat outside a lot but we made some more official picnic dinners the last few weeks and it was fun. Making a good picnic basket is definitely an art. Here is a little video we made that shows my favorite things to pack for a picnic. It was really fun to make! I hope you enjoy!

    I agree. Aside from the picnics, popsicles and ice cream I also love camping. The smell of marshmallow and smores are so good!

    Picnics are a highlight for our family especially because summers seem so short here in the Midwest! Jordan, can you share the name of the dress you are wearing? I clicked on the link and it took me to Target’s home page. Thanks!

      Hey Dawn! I bought the dress at Target last week, but I couldn’t find it on the website. I found it in the “Juniors” section.

    Wow this video is so cute! (I also had to watch “how to create a beach kit” – so lovely!) Summer time is such an amazing season. I definitely enjoy the bubbles most of this basket 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Anne

    Oh man, this video is so beautiful! It captures the mood of summertime perfectly. I’ve always thought picnics were so charming- something that happened often years ago, but is a dying pastime now. It’s definitely a goal of mine in the near future to buy a picnic basket and head to the country to snack, play, and relax in the grass.

    Ok, that picnic is very impressive and yummy…. but I have to say the tricks you did in that video is what took the cake for me. The floating look while packing the basket! Is that stop motion? I haven’t seen floating stuff like that before!
