Winner update: 6/4/12: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered! And the lucky random winner is… Commenter #11 – ROCIO. Congrats, have fun picnicking!


We have a fun new GIVEAWAY up for grabs today! If you love cider AND good excuses to celebrate outdoors, this fun Summer Picnic Pack starring the brand new Michelob ULTRA Light Cider should be right up your alley… and one lucky HWTM reader is going to win it!

We received one of these picnic packs to review ahead of time, and everything about it is truly great, from the taste of the Light Cider itself – crisp & refreshing with only 120 calories! – to the super cute & convenient Table in a Bag from Crate & Barrel. My husband and I used this giveaway post as the perfect excuse to go “work” in one of our favorite grassy spots in Del Mar… and I can’t tell you how many people stopped to ask us where we got “the cool little table” when we were setting up this mini shoot. ;)

    My favorite part about summer is all of the yummy fresh fruit!

  5. my favorite summer gatherings are the 'outdoor' movies our neighborhood hosts. Sheets get taped on the garage doors to mimic the big screen and the food and fun usually mirrors the movie theme. Such a relaxing night under the stars, with good friends, great food and fun decorations.
