Picnic in the Park

Sheep Meadow, Central Park
 The main reason we were in NYC was for my best friend's 30th birthday. She wanted to celebrate her milestone with a picnic in central park, so I did a little something to make it more special (and pretty) than just sandwiches on the grass. Romy always makes everyone feel like a queen on their birthday and I wanted to do the same for her, but considering I was traveling and I couldn't make the food or throw her a party, I had to figure out something to do for the girl who does everything for everyone. I figured the most portable thing I could do was personalize the picnic for her. With a few supplies and a little time, I was able to make a public park feel a bit more like her own, and it all fit in my carry on.

Painter's drop cloth became a picnic blanket, with hand painted "copperplate" birthday message
I painted the edges of regular paper plates with the same paint to coordinate
Personalized adhesive circles for the plastic wine glasses and scrapbook paper and labels added for the the utensil pack 
Final color coordinated product
Cheers to the woman of the hour

  1. I look at this one all of the time and I just realized I haven't commented on it!
    Ginger, thank you for making me feel so special. This was just about the nicest thing anyone has ever done or made for me. Every little thing was beautiful and more than I couldn've ever expected. I love you to pieces!


Comments? Gratzi!
