With all our kiddos home this summer, we’ve been planning some outings in Wilmington (well…as soon as the sun decides to show up). One of my favorite places to visit – Airlie Gardens. Our local outdoor garden feels like a magical kingdom to our sweet toddler…and it is the perfect spot for a summer picnic.


When planning out our day adventure, I have a few picnic must-haves. Of course, I need a great blanket on which to throw all our food and (THREE) children. Still can’t believe that number.


  1. Perfect picnic blanket:The only towel/blanket/cloth I need in my life right now – anything from Fair Seas Supply Co. I am such a fan of the company’s products and commitment to sustainability. The colors and patterns are so cheerful – perfect for summer!
  2. Picnic bag: If you’re looking for a personal picnic tote, check out Modern Picnic. These sleek lunch totes double as a purse – the perfect addition to any look! For larger outings, I grab my large tote from National. It’s the perfect weight for carrying everything you need for a big family picnic!
  3. Cheerful sundress:What’s a summer picnic without a lightweight summer dress? Choose from one of my three go-to options for a breezy afternoon at Airlie. Which one is your favorite?
