Whenever it's 50 degrees and sunny you can count on seeing hundreds of Seattle natives strolling along Green lake, flocking to Molly Moons, and digging out their volleyball nets. Spring is arguably one of the best times of the year, because it means the gloomy, windy, foggy, sometimes snowy month of January has come and gone. This year, however, we've been lucky enough to get a sneak peak at springtime during this rare phenomenon called "June-uary". 

Elsa and I took advantage of the weather and set up an outdoor picnic at Heritage Park in Kirkland, WA. The park is situated on a lightly wooded hill overlooking Lake Washington. It's a gem. Fun fact about Heritage Park: This is where Elsa and her husband, Tyson, had their "first look" on their wedding day.

 Photography for the Heritage Park shoot was provided by Kaylee Stevie. 

Plates and napkins from Anthropologie, Rabbit candle from Anthropologie, Woodland Creatures (spray painted gold) from Fred Meyers, Wine Glasses (spray painted gold) from Ross, and, dried flowers from Pikes Place Market


Our table settings were made from a combination of purchased items and DIY projects. For the gold dipped wine glasses, we purchased an inexpensive set from Ross, sealed of the top with tape and newspaper, and went to town with a can of gold. The dried flowers were purchased from Pikes Place Market that morning. Pikes Place is great for flowers because you can buy them in bulk and create your own arrangements. 

Hope you feel inspired to get outside and make the most of the sunshine!
