The date // A picnic at home.
The picnic // Bread, cheese, pickles, heirloom tomatoes, and other assorted goodness from the fridge.

Since we don’t really know how to take a weekend easy, no matter how we try, this weekend was much like the rest. Baking pies, shooting an engagement session for some of our best friends, selling pies, cleaning up our mess, and then crashing completely.

So this Sunday, since (see aforementioned crashing…) we felt like staying in, and the dark clouds outside seemed to be cheering us on, we decided to stake out a lazy little picnic on the floor.

We gathered up bits and pieces here and there, some leftovers, some just waiting for the right time to be eaten, and put together quite a little feast if I do say so myself, complete with a delicious bottle of wine we picked up while scouting the best local vineyards for Field + Foundry.

Maybe it’s obvious, but our favorite dates are always the ones we have at home, when it’s just us, a cozy blanket, a bottle of wine, and some time to catch up on everything we haven’t had the chance to say in the middle of such a long, busy week.

(And of course, a sneaky puppy waiting in the wings, hoping we might take pity and throw a piece of cheese his way…).

    Such a perfect date night–the cozy ones at home are always my favorite, too!

    Indoor picnics are kind of the best. This spread looks amazing! And your pup is so well behaved – Toby would have launched himself onto that cheese plate the second you turned your head 🙂
