Picnic Time

It is finally time to rummage through your grandmothers closet for the perfect knit quilt.
Yes my friends, it is picnic season.

Here in Alabama we have a good three weeks of perfect.sunny.70 degree weather to enjoy a little croquet, or mimosas with strawberries, and of course your favorite picnic basket or two before the weather turns sour.

...and by sour I mean unbearably hot.

These past couple of weekends I was able to relax
at a few of my favorite parks in Birmingham with a few of my favorite friends.

Weekend 1

A shop in Birmingham that rents every imaginable type of picnic supplies.
On top of that, hosts 2nd Sunday Picnic @ Rushton Park on Highland every month.
The owner brings out croquet sets, bat-gamin, picnic tables, and plenty of yummy treats.
Vintage revamped bikes are also sold at the shop. Check it out.
You will not be disappointed.

Weekend 2

Railroad Park.
This particular visit we met up with a handful of friends,
and began plotting for our community field day.
Accompanied of course by mimosas and fresh fruit.
I am talking about balloons. picking teams. potato sack races. parachutes.
the works!

Where do you like to picnic?


  1. I love to picnic in a park that on our city <3 specially in sundays where there are a lot of families and ppl having fun

  2. NO FREAKING WAY! I totally just "borrowed" one of my grandmother's old quilts just the other day for this! lol. In fact, I have a few spots in my yard designated for this very purpose. It has been pretty humid here in Al these past few days, though. I cant's STAND the muggy air!lol.

    what was the name of the shop?

    Love the pictures btw.
