one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields. the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket. we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company. now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal. however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable. they provided all the necessities & then some! the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies. this was a feast fit for a king!
