fall picnics + mountainfilm fesitval

The weather has been absolutely amazing here and we’ve been outside as much as possible lately.  I’m writing this post sitting on our front porch swing while the dog and chicken chill out under the trees.  There’s a cool breeze and all of our doors and windows are open in the house.

These magical autumn days are such treasures for all of us.  Not too hot or too cold…just right.  This is perfect picnic weather!

Here are two picnic baskets I like in different styles.  This traditional picnic basket is cute with its classic flatware and dishes.  Very Downton-esque. 

And this insulated metro basket from Seaside Style is chic and modern.  Great for picnicking, a concert in the park, or even tailgating with friends.  Also a fabulous Christmas gift.

Speaking of picnics, we’re hosting good friends from Atlanta this weekend to join us at Mountainfilm Festival in our town – one of our favorite events of the year.  Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival featuring nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, and social topics that truly inspire.  It’s an outdoor event, so we pack up our blankets and chairs and enjoy gourmet food and fireside s’mores under the stars while watching these award-winning films. Each film is 7-10 minutes in length, so you get a great variety of fun categories from all over the world.

This four day festival tours all over the world and is something you don’t want to miss if it comes to your area.  Check out their tour schedule hereLooks like they’re headed to Washington, Vermont, Cali, and Georgia next!  A sneak peek of their 2017 films are over here.

On a random note, the FedEx guy just delivered a package while I was typing and was quite surprised to be greeted by a dog and fluffy chicken.  You never know what you’re going to get around here.  I’ll try to post a pic of our two on instagram today.
