Laura from Celebrate and Detail shares a darling Beach inspired picnic that is the perfect summer lunch for kids!Hello, my name is Laura Orlando from Celebrate In Detail. I am so excited to be part of Camp Littles & Me beach week! Summer is here and what a better way to celebrate than at the beach! My kids and I love the beach and we can’t always get there, so I wanted to bring the beach to my own backyard. I created a backyard beach style picnic for my kids! They just loved it and truly had a blast! Let me show you how!A Backyard Beach Picnic is the perfect summer lunch with kids!First you will need a few beach inspired cookie cutters. I used a seashell, palm tree and fish cookie cutter. I wanted to use these cookie cutters as much as possible for the lunch. I made the kids peanut butter sandwiches and cut them into fish using the fish cookie cutter.A Backyard Beach Picnic is the perfect summer lunch with kids!Next, I used the seashell and palm tree cookie cutter and cut up some cheese slices.

I absolutely love to bake, so this was a great excuse to make sugar cookies. I decorated these adorable cookies with some delicious buttercream frosting.

I wrapped each item in small clear bags and tied them with pretty yellow ribbon. I used my square mini bottles for the kids drinks and filled them each with some cold ice water. Then I tied on a colorful striped paper straw to each bottle.
