I always love browsing wedding blogs and websites for new reception alternatives, and I can't tell you how much I absolutely love this adorable DIY purple picnic. Perfect for a casual rehearsal dinner, a small outdoor wedding, or a lovely afternoon with your bridesmaids, this picnic post is sure to please the crafty bride. With downloadable templates, source lists and instructions, constructing your own picnic boxes couldn't get much easier. Co-ordinate the colors to go along with your wedding theme and you suddenly have an interesting and out of the ordinary meal-to-go that guests will enjoy over good company and conversation. Add in some rustic picnic tables, a few bocci sets and a kite or two and you've got yourself a mighty fine afternoon.
