We repurposed a basket that we found at a local thrift store to make this floral picnic basket that’s perfect for summer entertaining outdoors. All you need is a bottle of wine, individual charcuterie boxes, and a picnic blanket for the most wonderful picnic in the park. You can find my full tutorial over at Make and Takes.

These wine, music, and summer nights napkins are perfect for summer concerts in the park. Pack a picnic dinner, along with our picnic basket above, and you are set for an amazing night.

I need to re-make these burlap and lace cutlery pockets. I’ve moved house about three times since I made these and they are missing. I loved using them not only for picnics but backyard entertaining too. You can find my instructions to make your own at Jolynne Shane’s blog.

Repurpose a bottle holder into a DIY picnic caddy. I’ve got all the details over at The Centsible Life. I’ve got another version of these too on our Minion pool party post. As you can see, you can make them any color you want. Fill them with condiments, bottle openers, straws, serving utensils, napkins, and more.
