while currently dealing with a teething toddler, in addition to her older sister,
& a husband living on the opposite coast,
i find myself often daydreaming...
in thinking of my picnic post from the weekend,
i decided to (attempt to) illustrate
some dreams for you.
first up is our sweet & simple picnic;
what a romantic affair!
especially when your meal can be had anywhere!
yums from the golden arches,
starbucks or whole foods;
if enjoyed at sunset, with flickering candles
to set the mood;
will be just the perfect way to relax and unwind,
pop some bubbly champagne, and do
whatever comes to mind.
apres dinner, you won't feel guilty for your picnic's excess waste;
your products are green! but still, make haste;
on your bicycle built for two, you'll ride
off into the sunset, for this romance to be applied!
(vintage asprey cocktail and picnic sets)
our next fabulous fete is an over-the-top revelry,
in a far flung locale during a month's long
a gourmand's delight on fine china is served; oysters! foie gras! and they're just the h'ors d'oeuvre!
course after course, from the tastebuds to the soul;
...you're on holiday! who cares about
quaff dom perignon from gold & crystal flutes;
and finish it all off with laduree macarons!
after such a feast, you will surely seek rest;
so its into your tent outfitted with
the best of the best!
to slumber under leontine linens atop but the comfiest of beds;
while visions of extravagance dance in your head.
these are both quite attainable, depending on where life finds you these days. i've been in the fortunate position to enjoy both types, and they are equally as fabulous, most especially if you have first-class company to enjoy them with.
"anyone who lives within their means
suffers from a lack of imagination."
