Picnic (or Cookout) Fun with BrylaneHome #giveaway

I love picnics. My family may not exactly know this as I rarely suggest it as something to do but I do love them. Ironically we live only minutes (we’re talking 2-3, 5 tops!) from a lake. A good size lake too. And they have an awesome park area for the kids and some walking/hiking trails, plus boat rentals.

BrylaneHome Picnic Review

You would think living that close to a lake we would be over there all the time during the pretty weather season (which living in Oklahoma means any month of the year, just depends on the particular day) but we aren’t. Memorial Day is a popular and great day to have a picnic. Just as long as we remember what Memorial Day is really all about.

Anyway, back to the picnics, despite the fact that I rarely suggest them I really do like them. The fun family time spent outdoors, with no electronic devices to distract us from each other, the sunshine, the whole atmosphere, I love it.

BrylaneHome has some adorable products to spruce up your picnic. These same products would also be adorable and very useful at your next cookout too, I know I’ll be using this Galvanized Drink Dispenser as much as I can! This was my favorite piece!

The picnic caddy has enough areas to carry lots of things you need for a picnic without having to load your arms down or make multiple trips.

Also included in this picnic set were the Anodized Pitcher and Colorful Tumblers. I love the size of these tumblers. They hold a good amount of your drink of choice but they will still easily fit into a cup holder in the car or a lawn chair without tippy over easily.

37 Bobbie Smith May 30, 2014 at 2:53 pm

We do like picnics, but our favorite is cookouts. Sometimes we cookout for ourselves, but we so enjoy having our family and friends over. Talking about things that happened years ago, things happening now…and afterwards we love to have bonfires. No better way to spend days like this with good food, good friends and family…and good conversations


38 Idaho Jill May 30, 2014 at 4:12 pm

We like picnics, just not the bugs! We do grill many nights each week, which counts as a cookout, right? :)
