Picnic Society Recap

30 Jun

Last Sunday Anne and I hosted a gathering of the Picnic Society, an important organization Anne founded last year. Allow me to tell you about it.

First, to get into the picnic spirit, we gave everyone a fancypants picnic name like Cassidy Sutton, Silas Adams, or Tallulah Shaw. Anne and I think this really helped set the tone.

We had a patchwork of brightly colored blankets to lounge on, and a giant red balloon to mark the picnic spot. Friends and friends-of-friends came to nosh on crackers and cheese, fruit, curried chicken salad with mango, orzo salad, and more. Anne outdid herself with two amazing pies: blueberry and strawberry banana cream! For refreshment, we sipped spiked southern punch, strawberry lemonade, and a cucumber mint tea with our striped straws.

Caroline won the croquet match, but the badminton game was a draw. We ended up awarding the Picnic Prize (a fun Boxsal picnic box) to Julia after drawing her name from a hat.

Thanks to all of our friends who came and brought everything from sparkling beverages to sparkling wit. We love you!
