Everyone is dreaming of spring: blossoming trees, warm sunshine and temperatures above freezing. With Arctic temperatures hitting most of the country, no one wants to go outside—so it’s time to get creative with what you can do indoors. I’ve been day dreaming about gathering friends for an outdoor picnic for months, but since that won’t be possible for awhile, I decided to bring my picnic indoors. Why should I wait until the weather gets warmer?
My first order of business was to create a cozy spot where everyone would want to sit, eat, drink and enjoy themselves for hours on end. The key ingredients? Comfy pillows and blankets to cover the floor. When creating an indoor picnic you want to be sure everyone will want to kick off their shoes, curl up and enjoy each other’s company. Be sure to have yummy treats and wine of course. I referenced our guide to creating the perfect cheese board that our team put together this past fall.
I paired soft and beautiful throws, pillows and much more to create the ultimate indoor setting—and no one wanted to leave! Now, it’s your turn to create your own indoor picnic. With these essentials, it’s sure to be a huge hit with all of your friends.
