In honor of this weekend’s Portland Bloggers’ Family Picnic I decided to make it Picnic Week here on the blog. Use the ideas gathered here to create a fun Summer time picnic at home or, if you are in Portland, bring your newly found ideas to the meet-up! I’ve already shared my favorite picnic supplies and a quick pasta salad recipe, there is so much more coming though! So, pop back in throughout the week for more picnic goodness.

I’m not the first, nor will I be the last, to post lots of pretty pictures and great ideas about picnics. Below is a list of some of my favorite picnic themed posts found across the internets. Can’t get enough picnic goodness? Then follow along with my Picnic Pinterest Board for more inspiration as I come across it.
Whoa! That was a lot of picnic fun… Now I’ve gotta go get to work on prepping items for the Portland Bloggers’ picnic. I have no idea WHAT I am bringing after checking out all the fun inspiration on this list one more time.
As part of my Summer Entertaining Series I’ve asked several of my favorite bloggers to share tips, parties, recipes, and ideas for great Summer parties. Today I’ve got one of my FAVORITE bloggers’ sharing her advice for Summer wedding attire. Please welcome Ting from Cup of Ting! This is especially relevant to me today as I don my own Wedding attire as I enjoy my sis-in-law’s wedding!
Hi, I’m TING! Jenni was sweet enough to invite me to share some sunny fun with you while she’s out getting her vacation on. I suppose you might want to know a little about me, so here I go…
I play house for a living! I’m a foodie who loves all things stripes + I still play dress up. As a dancing queen + healthy lifestyle cheerleader, I read cookbooks in my spare time + am not your typical stay at home mom. Come play with me sometime in this little blog world of mine called Cup of TING… giving you a sip of my Fashion, Food + Fun!
Now, summer is a coming + do you hear what I hear? Oh yeah, it’s wedding bells, champagne bottles popping, cheers + laughter all around. Here’s the age-old dilemma though… what to wear. My go-to for any summer wedding is the classic Little Black Dress. Here I’d like to share some options to jazz up YOUR little black dress attire.
Planning what to wear to a bevy of wedding events is difficult enough without adding in the extra challenges of limited space and weight restrictions. I’m one of those people that will get EVERYTHING to fit into one bag rather than pay for extra baggage fees. In order to still be prepared for looking the part at all the wedding events and still being able to pack light, I’ve come up with a list of rules that I need to apply to my wedding trip packing.
