Backyard Picnic - Family Time!

This past Saturday, I surprised my hubby and kids with a backyard picnic!!
While they were at the movies, I made all the yummy  treats! We had zucchini muffins, brigadeiros, strawberries, veggies, turkey subs and bruschettas.
They were so surprised and happy! We spent the afternoon playing ball, cornhole game, blowing bubbles and eating all the treats!
My husband is in charge of the cooking on the weekends, we barbecue almost every weekend so he HAD to bring his grill over and grill some delicious ribs!!
This was so fun to put together  just using items from our home and I only used what I already had in the fridge! 
A fun, affordable and a great family time day! :)

 The gorgeous ribbon garland is from A to Zebra Celebrations

  1. My goodness what a beautiful surprise for your family.

    When I was a little girl I use tell myself that when I am married I would always have family picnics with my own family . I love family picnics. Awesome decorations...ants...too cute.

    What are brigadeiros?

  2. Wow, what an awesome surprise for your family! You've inspired me to do something neat like that for my family.

    And I just love that ribbon garland!

  3. Great idea! We just love eating in the backyard. Everything looked so cute!

  4. What a sweet & fun idea! What a treat to have all those decor pieces right at home (like a real party), plus yummy food besides!


I would love to read your thoughts!
