Summer To-Do List: Meet Your Friends For a Picnic in the Park

Entertaining, Parties | | | Leave a comment

Who’s ready for a picnic?


All summer long, we’re featuring ideas and inspiration for summer fun with our Summer To-Do List. Today, we’d like to inspire you to pack a picnic basket with a friend and hit your favorite city park. For this shoot, Rebekah of A&B Creative, who also styled our lawn bowling shoot, arranged for friends Courtney and Paige to meet at an historic fountain in Oakland’s Lake Merritt. Lake Merritt just celebrated Love Our Lake Day on Sunday, so it seemed like a perfect time to feature this “crown jewel” of the city.


For this picnic, our Rattan Picnic Basket for 2 was the perfect choice. Stocked with wine glasses, plates, and cutlery, all it’s missing are the picnic goodies.


Luckily, Rebekah stocked the picnic basket with yummy treats for Courtney and Paige.


Courtney pops the bottlecap off the grapefruit soda with a Pottery Barn Lobster Bottle Opener.


All photos were shot by Kirsten Julia Photography. Courtney is an interior designer and the blogger behind Courtney out Loud, while Paige is a writer and photographer who documents street fashion on her blog STYLEpaige. Her makeup was done by Nikol Elaine.


And after their picnic, the duo would head out to try the Vintage Lawn bowling Set. You can see photos from that adventure here.
