Finish off your summer picnic with a party favor of cute little cookies in a jar. Picnic parties don’t have to have party favors, but why not when these little favors come together so effortlessly?

For the DIY cookie favors, you’ll need: cookies, a half pint mason jar with lid, a cute cupcake liner, “Thanks for Coming” printable (download below), 2 inch circle punch, twine, and sticker paper

Directions: First, fill the mason jar with cookies and close the lid. Next, place a cupcake liner over the top of the jar. You can glue it into place if the liner keeps falling off. Tie some twine around the cupcake liner. Print the “Thanks for Coming” printable onto sticker paper. Cut out the labels with a 2 inch circle punch. Stick a label onto the top of the jar over the cupcake liner.

TIPS FOR A PERFECT SUMMER PICNIC: I shared our fun free picnic invitations printable yesterday, so today I’m sharing some great tips for having a perfect summer evening out on a picnic.

tips for a perfect summer picnic

1 – Pick out a favorite picnic basket. I picked up this vintage inspired metal picnic basket from World Market.
2 – Bring a big blanket, but one that you won’t be worried about getting dirty.
3 – Be sure to bring your favorite foods. This isn’t the day to get your kids to eat their vegetables. I packed a delicious dinner of BLTs, watermelon, and barbecue potato chips.
4 – Surprise your kids with a fun bottled soda. I picked up a great variety of different types and flavors at World Market.
5 – Don’t forget the napkins! There is always going to be a mess or spill at a picnic – that’s why they are held outside! But, just to make it easier, keep some darling napkins on hand to help clean up.

Summer is starting to wind down. With all of the activities you have planned, find time to enjoy an evening picnic with the kiddos before it ends. Even better, invite some friends! Picnics are a great way to gather with friends or neighbors while keeping the party mess outside. Print out a picnic invitation or two, pass them out to your friends, and enjoy an evening outside.
