Vintage Inspired Picnic

Recently Laura Ashley asked me if I would like to take part in a paper pom poms challenge along with two other lifestyle bloggers. I was really pleased to have been asked to take part because I have been meaning to make some paper pom poms for a long time.

The weather has been really lovely recently, the sun finally burst through the rain clouds which seemed to have hung over Britain for most of the winter. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to have a little picnic in the garden with my mum and try out the paper pom poms.

Having a picnic is one of my favourite thing to do at the moment, especially in the garden when the sun is shining. My Laura Ashley paper pom poms added a ruffled charm to my vintage inspired picnic. I layered up lots of blankets and cushions to create a cozy little spot and hung the pom poms in the tree above. I used an upturned apple crate for a little makeshift table with a handmade patchwork tablecloth made from vintage Laura Ashley fabric and finished the look off with some floral tea cups and a pot of tea.Although it was lovely and sunny, it was a little chilly so mum and I snuggled under a blanketand sat chatting for a little while. She reminded me that her good friend Julia used to do this for us when my sisters and I were really small. When we used to go and visit she packed a picnic in a little wicker basket and we would go for a walk in the woods, she has such wonderful vintage style which has inspired my taste in home decor.
