Our Picnic in the Park

On Saturday, a bunch of us got together at Alamo Square Park (the one from the opening credits of Full House) to have my birthday picnic! It was low-key, everyone shared food, people came and went, it was good times. We should picnic on the regular!

Here’s a funny pic from the start of our day. Get out of bed? No thank you!

Setting up! Yes, Hairy brought fake grass to put on top of the real grass. And there’s my nifty new picnic blanket I got off Etsy made out of vintage sheets on top and a water proof vinyl backing on the bottom.

Nerds, we! Manda bought me that polka dot parasol for my bday, and I bought her those donut sunglasses just for funz.


El Guapo! And Rick in the background.



Eatin’ stuff.

Afraid of the sun’s mighty rays!

At a certain point in time, it actually got REALLY COLD and windy, and you could see the fog shooting over the sky, so we packed it all in! Champagne, napoleon cake from the Russian bakery, cheeses, berries, cupcakes, brownies, perfect perfect picnic!

    curious… where did you get the vintage sheet blanket?

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Etsy! I just did a search for “picnic blanket,”and there were various options of varying prices. Making your own would be pretty quick if you know how to sew, which I don’t really!

      It’s awesome. We didn’t spend a lot of money plus there was still a ton of food left!

    So colorful and awesome, of course. I guess there is use for post-craft-fair-faux-grass after all! Good to know.

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      AHAHHA yes, astro turf always comes in handy! Sometime we cover table tops with it!
