Spring Picnic BBQ Featured in American Farmhouse Style Magazine

You might remember our sweet Southern spring BBQ in Charlottesville, Virginia last year…it was the perfect picnic lunch celebration, hosted by some of our favorite photographers (CARRIE PATTERSONCHRISTINA MCNEILL KATE HEADLEY and JEN FARIELLO). Well, we are so excited to announce that it was picked up for a feature by American Farmhouse Style Magazine!

American Farmhouse Style highlighted so many beautiful details and playful, bbq-inspired DIY projects from the day, like free-printable seed packet place cards, a DIY gingham picnic blanket, and DIY pinwheel food labels. Everyone loves a warm-weather bbq, and we wanted to show how taking inspiration from a backyard picnic could be perfect for a daytime wedding or day-after brunch, and so easy to execute. My personal favorite is the DIY water-resistant picnic blanket. There’s nothing worse than wet grass soaking your lunch, right?!
