Mother’s Day is almost here!
What are your plans? I asked this question in our Sucré giveaway (btw, go enter if you haven’t already!!) and looks like a lot of you have some fabulous plans to celebrate! Yay!
Last year I wrote a very emotional for me post on Mother’s Day. You can check it out here. This year though it’s going to be cheery and fun! Spring weather is finally here (after the major snow storm on the first day of May…), birds are chirping, our newly planted grass is growing fabulously and I got a peak of baby squirrels living in our backyard tree! It’s a perfect time to pack the picnic basket, filled with goodies and head to the park! And that’s just what we did!
When thinking about easy yet delightful treat for your picnic basket, scones come to my mind. They are easy, you can pack them with chocolate chips or raisins and bake in no time. I sprinkled the tops with additional oats. They toasted deliciously during baking! Spread them with your favorite jam or preserves and you have a perfect picnic/brunch treat!
And what better way to enjoy these with a set of naturally made gourmet jams and preserves straight from a gorgeous jam jar?
For this year’s Mother’s Day celebration, I am partnering with one of my favorite companies to bring you today’s giveaway! The wonderful Le Creuset provides the oh-so-adorable Jam Jar in the gorgeous cherry red color! And this year they are partnering with Bonne Maman, a company that makes delightful jams and preserves, with no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. Don’t they all make for a fabulous setting?
I took this photo after our picnic with leftover scones. The lighting was gorgeous and I just couldn’t help myself. I love the glowing light that fills our backyard when the sun is setting…. It will remind me of the gorgeous day we spent and the fabulous picnic we enjoyed!
