Hello Glamourites,

Lately I have been trying to find extra ways to keep myself nice and cool with the heat of summer. Although don’t get me wrong I LOVE the heat! This recipe I found I must give credit to the Broken Bread blog at http://the-broken-bread.com but I have tried my own spin on it and you can use other fruit or ingredients you have around the house. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine xx Glamour Planner

Summer Picnic

11 Jun

Good Evening Glamourites,

With the sun shinning today and the warmth of the sun it made me extremely excited about all the summer adventures to come! One of those being PICNICS! I am looking forward to packing yummy food and drinks, grabbing a blanket and going to the beach, garden or mountain for a delicious picnic with friends. Here are some beautiful picnic setup’s I thought would be adorable to plan for a dinner party inspiration or afternoon lemonade with friends.

This cute idea with the tent on the beach piles of pillows just looks like a relaxing and fun filled afternoon picnic!

This picnic atmosphere is picturesque for a rustic farm field at the picnic table with wild flowers, lace table cloth and plastic cups (a must for outdoors).
