Everybody loves a picnic. So much so, there’s a whole week dedicated to celebrating them. We’ve had National Picnic Week marked in our calendar for weeks and the day’s finally arrived!
If you want to really up your picnic game this year, here’s everything you need to transform the last-minute soggy sandwich in the park into a proper shindig. Like they say, there ain’t no party like a Paperchase picnic party ‘cause a Paperchase picnic party don’t stop until the guests can’t move from all the houmous and cake they’ve eaten. Just us?
Got your blankets and baskets at the ready? Let’s dive in.
INVITES – Who’s Made the Guest List?
First things first – the invites. Venue, date, time, you need to make sure your guests know the deets and trust us no one is going to decline a party invitation that arrives looking like one of these beauties. We are in love with the 3D honeycomb effect of our Glamingos notecard set.
