looking forward to a beach picnic in a few weeks

I made it to Arizona and even though I love being with my sweet Tikko puppy again, I can't help but miss the beach.

Every summer BK and I like to have a picnic on the beach, which includes packing up a beach towel to sit on and sometimes if BK is in the mood, romantic candles. Before we head out to the beach we go to the store and pack up hot dogs, chips, dessert, and other goodies to later make a feast. My favorite part of our beach rendezvous though is packing up enchanting picnic baskets and making memories by the ocean that will last a lifetime.

Since you know how much I love the ocean I thought I'd show you some of my favorite pictures that I've come across, offering plenty of pretty decor inspiration. There are so many more elements that BK and I can implement into our picnics and these pictures offer plenty of inspiration:

Pretty dishes are perfect for a romantic beach picnic. I'd love to pack up some beachy and feminine dishes and place them in my beach picnic. They may be hard to pack - but they will look lovely once set up like in this:

Comfy pillows on the beach, especially if they are the color of the ocean water, will also be cozy and elegant looking. I'd love to carry some big pillows to the beach and sit on them during my picnic. Perfection!

This picnic looks more like what BK and I set up - a simple picnic basket, fruit, lemonade, and a fun blanket to sit on. What I love about this photo is that the picnic is set up at sunset - a perfect setting for a beautiful picnic.
So now that I'm all geared up and ready for a beach picnic, all I need is my BK!

Let's go already! I can't wait to be back in CA. 
Only a few weeks more.
