Anniversary Picnic...

   Family members celebrated an anniversary in style, it was a beautiful, fun day. My DIL loves Pride and Prejudice and wanted a picnic outdoors, with games, crochet, badminton, other old outside games, and it was so much fun.

She's worked months planning this out, going to thrift shops for baskets, chairs and tables. Making arrangements for the food, guest lists, buying Fall flowers, pumpkins, and where everything was going to be placed. It was all so well planned out and the weather was perfect.

They bought bales of hay to use for tables with cloth on top and the blankets on the ground to sit on.

 There were some tables around the outer edges with ones in the sun having umbrellas over them. The food was put in baskets, with a printed out list of what was in the basket. She had guests choose awhile back with a choice of meat or meatless basket. There were sandwiches, little cakes, cookies, cupcakes, macaroni and potato salad. They had little rubbermaid containers with individual salads with a top on it for any who wanted a salad, condiment packets and salad dressings in little cups.
 There was a guest sign in table with a basket of little wooden fans for guests. Tables were set up for veggie cups and fruit, lemonade, tea and a coffee table. There was a wine table and they used a canoe to fill with ice to put wine in, cool idea.

 There were two firepits and they had graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows to make smores.
