The Perfect Picnic With Blogger Glitter ‘N Glue

Sponsored by La Crema

At Lucky, we love to entertain. After all, what better excuse is there to showcase your own sense of style? Whether it’s an impromptu takeout dinner party after work or a chic celebration featuring a gourmet menu, hosting an event in your home has the potential to be incredibly festive—and fun!

To make your next party a snap, we’ve put together a bit of a cheat sheet, turning to a few fashionable bloggers to tap their entertaining expertise. This three-part series will address everything from which frock to rock to how to dress your table and what to serve your guests.

Each blogger has a unique aesthetic and myriad tips for incorporating your own personal style into your next event. We’ve given each girl the go ahead to plan a summer party her way—and we’ve helped her out by sending her a case of the good stuff: a crisp new Pinot Gris by La Crema winery. Hailed as pairing nicely with hammocks, sandals and playing hooky on a warm day, it’s the ultimate accompaniment to an al fresco fête, however you choose to style it.

For our second installment we have don’t-break-the-bank and do-it-yourself fashion blogger Kristen Turner of Glitter ‘N Glue.

The Perfect Location

"Location, location, location. Cozy spots with plenty of shade make prime picnic real estate. Invite your friends to meet you under a leafy tree at your local park or grassy knoll. If you live near the water, set up your afternoon picnic on the sand. Just remember to bring an oversized umbrella for shade."
