Ever since Freddie and I started dating, we’ve always shared an immense love for 3 things: travel, dates, and food. Especially when a meal was shared together outside. There’s something endlessly romantic about dining al fresco, and we always try to incorporate it when we’re away from home. Whether it’s rays of sun shining through, or a sky full of stars, we love the energy you get from being outdoors and slowly savoring a delicious meal.

While in California’s wine country last week, we opted to create a beautiful yet simple picnic to eat among the rolling hills and vineyards. After picking up fresh items from a local farmer’s market and then my beloved Oui by Yoplait French Style yogurt, we felt like we were transported back to the French countryside. One of my favorite places on Earth! The new yogurt has no artificial flavors and is sold in an adorable glass pot, so it was the perfect touch to top off our picnic.

Other than food, we were sure to pack a blanket – obviously! – music, sunhats, and of course, our girl Margo was there to enjoy the relaxation and vineyard views. And that’s it! Sometimes the most simple things in life are the best, aren’t they? We’ll be back in France next month, and I can’t wait to recreate this blissful scene.

Do you enjoy dining al fresco as much as moi?

Hi Jenny,

I am in the midst of organizing the perfect girls geteaway weekend for my dear friend’s bachelorette. Amongst the many wineries we will be visiting, I wanted to find a place to stop for a picnic along the way. I was curious to know where your lovely picnic took place?

Thank you kindly,

Ashley

Nothing says spring quite like a picnic under the trees on a warm evening — so needless to say, we ve got dining al fresco on the brain.

Give us recipes please

I have been looking for this yogurt in Canada I want to try it

I love your blog and Instagram – definitely a big fan! I’m going to Paris in November and was wondering if you had any suggestions for things to do in the cooler weather?

Making everything look so chic!

I am SO happy to hear that! It was a beautiful location.

What a fabulous day! I love a good picnic and that yogurt sounds like something I would say Oui too as well for my next picnic!

I agree! Thanks so much, love.

A French inspired picnic sounds marvellous, everything is set out so pretty too! Also farmers markets are the best, the produce is always very fresh. 🙂 xx
