When the sun is shining, I (Cristina) prefer to eat my meals al fresco…preferably with a view. So for this edition of Bring it Home, we’re packing it up and moving our interior inspiration to the beach! While Austin isn’t technically a coastal town, we’re blessed with our fair share of watering holes, and summer just isn’t complete until I’ve packed a picnic and enjoyed it near one of them. In honor of Picnic Week, I’ve gathered the prettiest picnicking supplies I could find – printed plastic spoons, a portable cheese board, vintage food tins – and I’m ready for a day in the sun. Keep reading for my picks…

    Is the blue striped bag in the first picture a cooler? Where is it from?

    I’d love to join your picnic on the beach and I would love to own that Volkswagon camper van!
