Spring deliciousness

Picnics evolved from the elaborate traditions of outdoor feasts enjoyed by the wealthy. Medieval hunting feasts and Renaissance era country banquets can be credited with laying the foundation of the outdoor dining experiences we enjoy today. The history of picnicking is credited to the Europeans, and nowadays people all around the world enjoying participating in these leisurely outings. On romantic and family picnics a picnic basket and a blanket are usually brought along. Outdoor games or some other form of entertainment are common at large picnics [source]

Our friends at Cotton Candy are absolutely amazing. Special thanks for posting some of the greatest spring and summer picnic recipes ever.

In the Country

More personal than a banquet hall, country weddings can be some of the most beautiful and inventive of all. Maybe it’s the mix of informality and elegance, the day-to-day and the once-in-a-lifetime, or how impressive it is to see a place so transformed. Regardless, let these ideas stimulate your imagination to dream up your singular celebration.
