Summer is for picnics right?! Only if you live in a state where it doesn’t get over 75 degrees during summer! I live in Arizona and well… we have to host our picnics indoors…ha! 🙂 Either way- I hope you enjoy these cute and easy ideas I came up with for Arizona Midday TV show last summer!


You can host a fabulous picnic with cute decorations from Party City! I love the picnic banner because the letters are stickers and you can personalize it to say whatever you wish 🙂

How to get started? Go to your local grocery store and buy a plain white cake to put on the table as your centerpiece.

Picnic Cake

I dressed up mine with white and red jelly beans around it and put fresh berries on top. If you are celebrating a birthday, you can copy and paste the free printable at the bottom of this post.

picnic cupcakes

I bought mini cupcakes at the grocery store as well and put hamburger gummies as toppers on some and some free cupcake toppers you can download as well.

Watermelon on a stick is a must at every picnic!…..Kids love these! You can find the white trays over at Party City for only $1.99!

picnic snacks

Popcorn is inexpensive and the adorable picnic cups are perfect for an easy grab-n-go!


Set your picnic cups on a white tray for better presentation and dress up the straws with free printable flags!

I found these watermelon lollipops at my local 99.cents store. I simply wrapped an empty can with gingham paper and put some foam inside to stick the lollipops….easy and done in 5 minutes!
