But, before we get started I have a super fun and exciting announcement to share.  I have been handpicked as one of the top 30 craft and lifestyle bloggers for Michaels new Michaels Makers blogger program!  Pinch Me!  I am so thrilled to be part of this team that will bring you new projects, reviews, DIY tips and techniques to inspire you throughout the year.  Now back to the project…


Inspired by one of the Summer projects on the new Michaels website I created a fun and easy craft to make summer entertaining a breeze.  Our family loves dining outside during the summer and packing up a picnic to enjoy at the park, an outdoor concert or by the lake is a regular summer activity. These Mason Jar Picnic Containers not only serve as silverware holders, but also double as a drinking glass. Wrap the Mason Jars with a cheerful ribbon to add a pop of color. Don’t forget to attach a chalkboard tags so everyone can keep track of their drink.

Simple stamped napkins make a pretty statement and can be reused over and over again.

Our picnic at the park included sandwiches, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, orzo pasta salad, cookies, and mini lemon raspberry tarts.  I love using smaller mason jars to create individual servings of my favorite Orzo Pasta Salad, it makes it easy for everyone to grab and enjoy.
