Who doesn’t love a picnic during the summer? Certainly, a bride-to-be would welcome one! What a fabulous chance to put aside all the pre-wedding stress for a bit and just enjoy the outdoors with dear family and friends. So we couldn’t have been more excited to stumble upon this cheerful and charming bridal shower picnic styled and hosted by Rita of Suburbs Mama for her sister. With the help of their mom and 4 other sisters, the occasion was not only such a pretty sight to behold, but clearly a celebration of love and family—including some scrumptious-looking home baked picnic treats!

Such Beautiful Details for a Homemade Bridal Shower Picnic

What caught our eye about this picnic was the use of bright colors and fun patterns throughout, from the decorations to the food items—yet somehow managing to keep the whole look unified. What we realized, then, was that certain key elements were repeated or kept constant…but so effortlessly, you barely notice!

  • – florals – a happy yellow, orange, and green flower print in the long table runner (laid over plain white bedsheets), matched by simple bunches of daisies, carnations, and mums in bottles
  • – gingham print – this was repeated in varied colors in the fabric bunting overhead and the mini bunting on the cake, the food cards, the cupcake toppers, and the bottle labels creating a homey, country feel
  • – homemade and heartfelt – apparently everything for the picnic was made by Rita and her family from sewing the bunting to preparing all the delicious goodies you see so proudly labelled (luckily, some recipe links are provided, too!)

But wait! Where’s the picnic aspect of all this prettiness, you may ask? Well, you’ll have to visit the full post over at Suburbs Mama to see the blankets and throw pillows they laid out on the grass for guests. Plus, the fun ‘bridal gown runway game’ they played for the guest of honor to judge!

All in all, this Fabulous Find clearly proves that a wonderful celebration like this bridal shower picnic can be pulled together with available household items, delicious dishes and desserts you’ve made yourselves, a few decorative touches like flowers and party printables—plus a whole lot of love! Thank you to Rita and her lovely sisters for showing us how!


  1. I would like to know how you made the wrappers for the chips at the picnic bridal shower

  2. Hi Jocelyn! We wish we had been the ones to style this charming shower. But, sorry, the original post at Suburbs Mama only mentions that they made the bags out of freezer paper. I’m sure you can find a template online for making a similar size and shape of bag.
