4th of July Picnic Essentials

4th of July is a time to gather and mingle with friends and family. Usually, the 4th is known for its outdoor festivities and classic American food such as BBQ, hotdogs, potato salad and the like. Something about this holiday warrants the enjoyment of mother nature.

We at Thurman Design Studio are soaking up the rays! My wonderful interns Katie & Anna helped with todays blog post. We're talking Picnic Essentials.

There's nothing like a classic taco bar to get the festivities started. Recently my husband Josh and I have been ordering from Hello Fresh. Prepackaged, fresh meals delivered to your door. All you have to do is chop and cook the ingredients! Perfect for a busy family or pair of hard working entrepreneurs like my hubby and I.

No picnic is complete without a quintessential picnic basket, stylish blanket and wine, of course. I recently discovered these awesome Chia & Quinoa Tortilla Chips. You can get them at your local super market. Light and crips, very tasty. Here is a full list of all their chip products click.

At TDS we love, color, and all things uniquely boho. You, too, can throw your very own picnic gathering in style. Here are some of our favorite finds!
