4TH OF JULY PICNIC FEATURING MODERN BURLAP
Posted on 28 June 2016
With July 4th right around the corner, that means a long weekend of outdoor meals are in the very near future! Whether you have a weekend at the lake or beach planned, or a simple and lovely weekend planned at home, we’re challenging you to celebrate 4th of July with a family picnic over the weekend.
Picnicing is one of our families favorite things to do together. It takes an every day moment that can become mundane and elevates it to another level. It’s like a mini party for your family! We love celebrating the every day together, and picnics are one of the easiest ways to do so.
As with most things, we always use our Modern Burlap throw blankets and swaddles as our picnic blankets (and sometimes even the meal at hands napkin!). We like the thickness of the throw blanket on harder ground, and our swaddles are perfect if the kiddos want their own picnic blanket for a bit (which trust us, totally happens!). They’re so easy to throw in the wash once your picnic is wrapped up and you’re all back inside. We have yet to have a blanket or swaddle not come clean, which is saying something, especially when the boys have strawberries in their hands!
One of our favorite magazines, Real Simple, has compiled the perfect Fourth of July Picnic Menu. We’re definitely planning on bringing the watermelon skewer pops to our huge family (20 people plus!) picnic this holiday weekend.
Snap a picture of your July 4th picnic with Modern Burlap and share your precious memories with us on Instagram with the hashtags #MBMemories and #ModernBurlap. We cannot wait to see how your long holiday weekend is!
