Happy Friday! I’m inviting you to a lakeside picnic for this week’s edition of Floral Friday, along with my blogging friends!
You can find their links for beautiful floral and picnic inspiration at the bottom of this post.
Our theme and challenge for this week’s edition of Floral Friday was to use jars in a picnic setting.
It was a pore-cleansing challenge. . .
With an eye on the weather to dodge rain showers, I ended up photographing and setting my picnic up on extremely humid 90+ degree day . . .the things I do for blogging. ;)
I cut some Limelight Hydrangea blooms for some Ball Jar Bouquets and to fill a basket to hang on the dock post.
My galvanized bottle caddy is a favorite picnic accessory and comes in handy for toting and corralling flatware, napkins, drinks, straws, food in jars, as well as Ball Jar Bouquets.
Alstroemeria from the grocery store provides a pop of red and joins foliage from the shrubs, limelight hydrangea blooms and coleus from the planters.
I filled my picnic basket with some new melamine Berry & Blossoms plates and bowls I was thrilled to find on sale last month.
The fruit, flowers and wicker pattern makes for festive picnic-ware and enjoying a casual and easy picnic of fruit and cheese and some sparkling lemonade!
Colorful ceramic knives add some additional flower power for Floral Friday. Who wouldn’t want to cut their baguette or slice their cheese with a floral knife with a blooming blade cover?
