The sugar maples are in their fall saturated glory here at StoneGable. A perfect time to lay a blanket on the ground and enjoy a picnic on a brisk Autumn day! Today we are bringing some of the indoors outside to set a table on the ground in the crackling fall leaves. And we are making it comfy with pillows and blankets and other little embellishments! A perfect fall day and a perfect way to spend it… picnicking in the leaves!
Today we are celebrating the beauty of fall. A big thanks to HERITAGE LACE for sponsoring this post!
I spread out a reversible houndstooth blanket from Heritage Lace for picnicking. It’s my new g0-to blanket. I just love it’s design, color and styling… and the reverse side too!
The sturdy basket was packed full of easy and delicious fall inspired food!
I love these crochet baskets! They can be folded up easily. They are great on-the-go baskets!
I filled one up with ripe MacIntosh apples.
And one basket with corn bread and snickerdoodle cookies…Bobby’s favorite!
The tops of these soft baskets can be folded down to adjust their height.
Lunch is served on round wicker trays.
What’s better than chili on a brisk fall day? Napkins are Vintage Pom Pom Tea Towels. I love their simple sayings and quaint detailing!
If you like Chili look for my chili recipe next week!
To keep things simple I wrapped cornbread in individual parchment packages and tied them up with twine. The snickerdoodles got the same treatment!
Today’s libation is Cider! Because the picnic is in our yard, I’m using my favorite bubble glasses. They don’t have to travel far.
Tall bottles with stoppers are portable ways to take a beverage to a picnic!
And tucked in the DOWNTON HUNT CLUB WINE BAG is a scrumptious fall cocktail… Bourbon Apple Cider! YUM! The pattern on the wine bag is the same as the reverse side of blanket! So pretty, right?
Pillows make a picnic so much fancier, not to mention much more comfortable! I brought out some big down pillows to lean on. The DOWNTON HUNT CLUB PILLOW COVER adds another layer of comfort and coordinates with the blanket and the wine bag too!
If you are having an outdoor picnic remember to bring some great pillows outside!
A crochet bag becomes a impromptu vase to hold a couple low lying branches I cut. Gotta have a little bit of fall decor!
Sugar maples are my favorite fall trees!
A chair that belonged to my great grandmother makes a nice place to put some fluffy blankets!
Now are you ready to eat? Okay, grab a bowl of chili and a glass of cider and relax!
