    The weekend goes hand in hand with a picnic. I love the old feel of this English picnic at the park filled with comfy textiles and pretty enamelware. Start by looking in your closets and your mom’s closets to find props to reproduce that look.

    If you have the luxury of living in a calm backyard, make it more a retreat by positing a Bistro dining set under a large tree. It look so great in yellow. I feel in Provence every time I see a French Bistro set. I beat that it would become your ideal spot to drink your morning coffee, eat a late lunch or sip a cocktail before dinner. The best part is that it is an inexpensive look. I found these items on sale.
