Grab and Go Lunch



It's hard to believe that July is almost over.  Get out and enjoy a
park for an afternoon grab and go lunch!  Gather up a small folding chair,
a portable grass mat and a bag full of lunch time goodies.






I'm using a striped kitchen towel for a place mat and a gingham plastic plate.
Fill up some containers with a light salad and some sliced fruit.




Check out these cute vintage salt and pepper shakers.  I found them
at a yard sale.



Don't forget your water bottle.  This one has pictures from the old
Dick, Jane and Sally early reader books.  Love it!



And of course, don't forget your "beach read".

I am happy to be joining ~

and

Bentley ~ let's bring snack and a water dish for you too!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. Great idea but I'm going to have to wait several more months before a picnic is do-able. It was 100 degrees at 7 p.m. last night. Love all your pictures....very pretty!

  4. Oh, I love this picnic set. The red & white gingham is perfect.

    I wish we could enjoy a picnic outside but right now the temperatures are in the 100's everyday!!

    Enjoy!
