Father's Day Picnic - LAURA'S little PARTY

Father's Day Picnic

June 10, 2014

Outdoor picnics are always a favorite Summer pastime of ours. 
I thought a small backyard picnic for Father's Day would be the perfect way to 
tell Dad how much he is loved & appreciated.
Using {free} printables from Printabelle, I was able to create a quick, and 
fuss-free dessert table that was fit for a fabulous Father!

I fell in love with the blue tones of the printable kit, 
and I knew I wanted to pair it with rich brown tones.
I attached chicken wire to a pallet, and spray painted it brown. 
I also found a weathered table that was perfect to display some of Dad's favorite snacks.

Treats: I filled up pails with bottles of root beer, peanuts, and donuts on sticks.
Chocolate cupcakes were also a must!

I attached the toppers to the front of pails, and tied one onto the pail of peanuts.
I took Printabelle's larger 'thank you' tags and added them to paper fans from Oriental Trading.
I also placed them on the tops of skewered donuts. 

Not only did I put cupcake toppers on the cupcakes, I added them to 
mini paper ties that were placed around the bottles of root beer. 

An 8x10 printable 'Best Dad Ever' sign was used as part of the backdrop, and 
the mini candy bar wrappers were added to striped paper straws.

My little guy wanted to plan the menu for his daddy's picnic. 
He decided on hot dogs, and frozen taquitos! 
We packed the food, and a couple plates, inside of the picnic basket, and then set out a blanket. 
The conversation that afternoon was priceless!
