We love picnics. The boyf and I are known for our love of picnics. We have birthday picnics and we even have picnics in a car if necessary. Picnics are rad. There is the picky food, the casual eating, not to mention the juice with a straw!
So when thinking about how to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a low-key mid-week cheap and cheerful way, I decided to lay out the picnic blanket on my bed and cover it with delicious meats, bread, crisps and dips. It was a surprise for the boyf and his face was a picture when he saw it. It was the most calm, serene and easy-going way to spend Valentine’s evening.
And then I got the most amazing present. The boyf knows how much I am loving Utility China at the moment and managed to track down a set of the blue Iris Woodsware. Wahoo! I’m so excited to use it in our new house (fingers crossed it goes through this week).
It was a very lovely laid back evening filled with picnic yumminess, giggles and love. There were love hearts, chocolate, juice with a straw and vintage china. And of course lots of cuddles and marvelling at how I am a very lucky girl indeed.
I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day if you have a significant other in your life.
** Sorry, for the gazillion photos of me. The boyf is shy.
