The perfect birthday beach picnic


I spent this past weekend celebrating my 24th birthday with friends, family and loved ones (also lots of birthday shopping and cake eating!). I'm truly blessed and grateful to have so many supporting, loving and caring people in my life! It's just crazy to me how fast time is flying by, but I'm learning to cherish each moment while creating lasting memories.

For my birthday this year George wanted to have an "insta worthy" beach picnic because he knows how much I love taking photographs and spending time on the beach. We had such an amazing time at Plum Island, picked up lobster rolls from Wegmans and set out for a wonderful day together. It was perfectly overcast so it was prime for taking photographs, but also just soaking up the moment and spending time on the perfect date (all George's idea!).

To create the picnic table setup I used this adorable blue table runner from Pier1, a bunch of seashells and filled glass jars with sand to hold the candles. It was a fun, ocean like setup, but very classy and elegant. Check out some of the photos below!
