Sun baked fun and picnics

With summer weather already here, most of us are longing for the nostalgic picnics of the good old days. However, the saddest update is that the pandemic has not quite left us, and our stay-at-home order has been extended. So, does that mean that we have to miss-out on the fun times completely?

On the contrary, a little bit innovation from our ends could turn things around. After all, isn't this what the pandemic has taught us? That we can, and must work with whatever options we are given.

Yes, we are speaking about an easy alternative, such as the replica-grass laden veranda, or the hand-crafted rug placed over the concrete on the rooftop. We can have our mini picnics right at these spots, at the comfort of our very homes, with our loved ones around.

A mini basket full of home-baked goodies, fresh fruits and lots of iced tea would enhance our experience. To this, we can add calm retro music or some soothing jazz tunes, especially to match the mood of the afternoon.

Few scrambled ideas for the entire day could be to turn the environment into a mini courtyard fit for the queen and the king. Strings of paper lanterns can be used as decorative elements, a splurge can be made out of cushy pillows, decorative furs and a karaoke microphone for singing out loud our favourite tracks.















At Star Lifestyle, we never miss out on the fashion and the styling suggestions, which we believe, is one of the most integral part of any get-together. This year, try wearing pure-cotton dresses in check prints or the plain khadi for these 'stay-at-home' picnics. Indigo tie-dyes also look brilliant when aesthetically

imprinted over the ivory white dress. Make sure you wear a fashionable hat or a matching scarf to match the sensibility of the occasion. Both kitten heels and flats go wonderfully well with the occasion and the loose — flowy, pure deshi cottons that we suggest you should be wearing.

If an occasional pigeon comes now and then, to enjoy your picnic alongside your immediate family, consider your hard-work a success.
