While normally reserved for idle Sundays, the classic picnic reinterpreted through a stylist’s eye, takes on a whole new level of interest and design when considered for a post ceremony celebration or a casual summer cocktail reception.
Reimagined for a beachside venue, we love the idea of an all white picnic over dreamy stretches of sand filled with carefully curated decor that steers clear of bohemian cliches. Define the area with handmade tents or tipi structures in bleached white timber and billowing linen, or a sea of textured blankets and scattered tonal white throw cushions for a communal style gathering.
Keep the styling uncluttered with simple scatterings of candles, coffee tables and rugs in a palette completely bleached of color. Choose chic seating such as low lying white linen lounges (steer clear of any vintage furniture) or butterfly chairs. Invite your guests (via textured paper invitations) to dress in crisp white and barefoot for the celebration.
The serenity and lightness that an all white palette brings to a wedding has our minds dreaming up a fresh oceanic infused menu with canapes served on beautiful marble serving trays, textured white ceramics plates, mother of pearl flatware paired with fine glassware for fresh summery cocktails.
