How to Have a Spring Picnic in Style

April 7th, 2014

When you ask the creative team behind Jeffrey’s, one of Austin’s finest and most stylish dining establishments to share their ideas for the makings of the perfect spring picnic, don’t expect anything ordinary. Think martini bar cart service…from a red Radio Flyer wagon or melt-in-your mouth raspberry macarons filled with strawberry jam and rose water chantily cream served on Heath Ceramics dishes. Executive Chef Rebecca Meeker and Creative Director Ryan Smith guided us through a dreamy day at the park and shared helpful tips on how to elevate your next picnic outing. And on the subject of picnics, Austinites should join Team Camille Styles this Saturday night at the Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic, a community-wide picnic in the park for an exciting cause for the city. We hope you enjoy these tips for bringing some special details to your next frolic in the grass, and as always, the most important ingredient for a successful picnic is being with the ones you love most!
