Today is my Mom's birthday!! The kids and I took a picnic to her work. I got the table all set up before calling her to come out. Needless to say, she really liked it!!
I layered two tablecloths and a Southern Living at Home wine caddy doubled as a vase. I kept the food cold using an enamel roaster and ice.
We feasted on chicken salad, veggies and ranch, and fresh strawberries and pineapple. I will say that I would have liked to put the croissants in a cloth lined basket, but didn't bring one. Of course, time spent with loved ones is much more important than the details, but it really isn't any harder to package food in pretty bowls and jars.
