I’m really blessed. Every now and then it hits me. As I started to silently grumble in my head about what I had to do today, I practically stopped and slapped myself. This is what I “had” to do today:
I had to bike down to the beach, less than a mile from our house, and take pictures of our new picnic blanket.
Ugh. What a terrible life!
This just goes to show that no matter what’s going on in your life, the urge to complain about it can be strong. I’m trying to beat that urge right out of my life.
I have very little to complain about. Very little. Certainly not the fact that my job is to create gorgeous organic picnic accessories and take pictures of them at the most beautiful beach I have ever been to in my life.
Now, would I rather be laying on said picnic blanket, soaking up the sun while the kiddos splash around in the surf? Yup. But that’s on tap for this weekend. Today’s Monday, so let’s get to work!
It is now my job to tell YOU about our super awesome, beautiful, functional, pure & clean organic cotton picnic blankets… which are now available in 5 gorgeous color combinations.
What makes our picnic blankets unique? They are completely and totally 100% organic, inside and out. Some companies advertise “organic,” but when you look closely, just one part of the finished product is actually chemical- and toxin-free. Island Picnic products are ALWAYS made with nothing but CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON – fillings and all. We pride ourselves in our commitment to organic.
You can sit back and enjoy your lunch, knowing that this picnic blanket is absolutely pure and clean – healthy for you and your family, and healthy for our earth.
What about the details? Here they are:
~ Our blanket is LARGE and measures approximately 58″ x 70″, nearly 30 square feet! You can see my nearly 6-foot-tall hubby fits nicely, with room to spare…
~ Handmade from Harmony Art’s gorgeous 100% GOTS certified organic cotton twill prints and backed with solid organic cotton duck. These are both nice, sturdy weighted fabrics that make the blanket heavy enough to lie flat on it’s own – no need to weight down the corners.
~ Sure, you like flowers, but hubby… not so much? Good news! They’re reversible!
~ We’ve quilted in a layer of organic cotton flannel on the inside for just the right amount of cushion.
~ The added layer inside adds absorbency, so you will stay dry, even on wet ground.
~ I said this already, but it’s worth repeating: No need to weigh down the corners or worry about this blanket blowing away; the sturdy weight fabrics used give it the perfect heaviness to lie flat without needing to put your flip flops on the corners!
~ Machine washable! Easy to clean.
Our organic picnic blankets are perfect for family picnics in the grass, beach days, baby play dates, romantic dinners for two, finishing that novel in the backyard, etc. Keep it in the back of the car so you’ll always have it handy — I do!
In case you don’t believe me, I have proof that we actually use our products in our everyday lives. Here’s our Brown/Aqua Swirl Organic Cotton Picnic Blanket, in full use, in all of it’s sandy glory!
Our picnic blanket has become a staple travel accessory. Of course we take it to the beach, but I also pack it for movies in the park or the drive-in (that’s always so much fun!), and we took it on our Robinson Preserve hike a couple months ago.
The kids actually prefer to sit/lay on it rather than me bring a chair for them. That tells me we’re doing our job right.
What was I complaining about?
