Happy Wednesday! While today may be the day to bond with your best gals, tomorrow is the day to share a bit of romance with your love. It may be freezing outside, but that didn’t stop me from putting together a romantic indoor picnic for two. I just moved a few chairs out of the way and laid out a beautiful spread in front of the fireplace.
Start with a cute picnic basket to set the scene. I found this beauty at Amara. They have so many great styles and sizes to choose from.
Set the mood to cozy with candles, fresh flowers and faux fur.
Normally I like to whip up sandwiches and treats from scratch, but this year I’ve been a little busy with a new project. I’m so happy Gelson’s Market just opened in Manhattan Beach as it’s the perfect place to pick up everything you need for a picnic. I chose two different cheeses and prosciutto, along with my favorite gluten-free crackers, and a baguette and pasta salad for Mr. Pretty Little Shopper. I also picked up some fresh fruit, deviled eggs and delicious macarons and gluten-free chocolate cake from Gelson’s in-store bakery, Viktor Benes.
Mr. Pretty Little Shopper is camera shy, so I invited Cledus to shoot with me. He’s a natural in front of the camera and I need to practice my paw-renting skills for when I get my own puppy soon.
He really liked the prosciutto!
And I really loved this gluten-free banana chocolate chip cake!
Don’t worry Mr. Pretty Little Shopper… it’s only puppy love. 🙂
Don’t forget the sparkling rose! Casa Luigi mini cans are perfect for a picnic!

Have you ever had an indoor picnic? I think I might have a few more until it gets warm enough to take my new picnic basket to the beach.
Wishing you a Valentine’s Day full of love and puppy kisses!
