Summer Picnic Party

A Summer Picnic Lunch!
With Summer in all its glory (and by all its glory I mean heat wave madness) the heat has driven me slightly mad.. definitely crabby and I certainly cannot wait for a temperature relief! I have been almost unable to do anything this whole week. So while I am crabby I will share this easy and fun picnic table sandwich with you!

First off a big thank you to Hani from Haniela's and Beth from Hungry Happenings for organizing this summer picnic blog party and for inviting me to participate. I always have so much fun with blog parties because I love seeing what everyone comes up with!
Whenever I think of Summer and picnics I literally think of a picnic table.. So I did my best to recreate a fun food creation that resembled a picnic table!

I started off with a piece of bread, and tried to make it into a picnic table. I placed a smaller piece of bread on top of a larger piece. You can fill with your favorite fillings. It should sort of resemble a picnic table and its bench! and while its not perfect I'm pretty sure its only the perfectionist in me that is complaining.

To make the picnic blanket I used cheese and food coloring! You could use a fruit roll up if you had one, but I didn't. I chose not to use my organic fruit leather because it was a deeper read, and I wanted a brighter red. So I colored my cheese with a drop of edible food dye, also using my edible food markers to touch up. After it dried I sliced up the piece of cheese into strips and laid them on top of a single piece of cheese in a pattern similar to a picnic blanket :)

On top of the table I added cheezits (yummy food) and candy Dots (upside to look like drinks). For the final touches I added two cute cupcake picks! What summer picnic is complete without a hot dog? And of course we need the classic picnic basket. I used those two picks to add some extra details :)

All together it came out pretty cute! And it wasn't very difficult to make at all! :)
