In the summertime, our family is always looking for an outdoor adventure. If the sun is out, you’ll catch us swimming in lakes, camping, hiking, or having a picnic. On the afternoon of the Summer Solstice, we packed up some delicious food + drink and headed out into our backyard to throw a picnic and officially welcome in sweet summertime.

This is the third and final post in my series with Finish – Power & Free. We have now been using the Finish – Power & Free dish washing line since February. It has been a joy. Before we started using Finish, I was close to giving up on my dishwasher. With all of the grit that was left behind on dishes and plates — it wasn’t worth it. But since we’ve started using this new line, all of that has changed. Our dishes come out clean and this mama has more time to spend with her family — living & loving. The fact that the new line of products is designed to be less harsh so that it can even be used with baby products is the icing on the cake. We won’t be going back.


Before I close, I want to share a few details about our picnic in case you’d like to plan your own.

On the Menu
Creamy Kale & Spinach Dip
Guacamole
12 Grain Crackers
Rosemary Raisin Crisps
Organic Strawberries
Red Grapes
Pink Lemonade

Our pretty cloth napkins are Dot and Army. Our picnic blanket is this one from JJ Cole Collections. It’s perfect. I love the colours. The material makes it super-easy to clean up messes (Hello, toddler!) and it folds up into a cute little easy-to-carry tote. We’ll be getting a lot of use out of this at the beach this year. Our picnic tote is this one from Toluca. I love that it’s insulated and keeps everything on the inside perfectly cooled. It will be another summertime staple.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our Summer Solstice celebration picnic. I’d love to hear about the ways that your family celebrates the beginning of summer.
