The Best Picnic Decorations for Your Birthday Party

1. Gingham

If you know anything about picnics, you know that a picnic is not a picnic without gingham. Gingham, which is a bold colored checkered fabric, is absolutely a picnic staple. Typically, you will find gingham displayed in the tablecloths covering a picnic table and the napkins for guests. Below, you will find a couple ideas for how to create a beautiful tablescape using gingham as well as a few more creative ways to include gingham at your picnic birthday party.

2. Baskets

This is another absolute essential for decorating your picnic themed birthday party. You can use either the traditional picnic baskets, or you could decorate using mini baskets and strawberry crates. Baskets are a great way to display your guest seating places by creating individual picnic lunches for each guest and having that basket placed at each guest’s spot. You can also use baskets to display your food, desserts, favors, and more! Check out the ideas below for some great inspiration!

3. Flowers

The next thing on your picnic themed decorations list should be flowers. When planning a summer picnic, the best flower choices are always sunflowers and daisies. You can display them in baskets, jars, or tin cans. Don’t forget to add a little gingham ribbon accent to complete your look! Sunflowers and daisies not your thing? Red and white colored flowers are also a great option for a picnic theme! Here are some cute flower decoration ideas for you to use.

5. Fabric Banners

Whether holding your party inside or out, picnic themed fabric banners make a gorgeous addition to your picnic themed decorations. There are a lot of options when it comes to these banners. You can make your own DIY fabric banner by simply tying fabric scraps to a long piece of string. Use fabrics such as gingham, bandanna, reds, whites, and blue or yellow to give it a picnic feeling. Or, you could purchase a more professional looking banner that is either a mixture of fabric triangles, or has a word sewn onto it. If you are looking to simply purchase a banner to make things easier, we have created a fun picnic themed fabric banner just for you! Check out the photos of our banners as well as a few other ideas below.
