Back to School: Creative Lunches & Bento Boxes (Part 2)

Can you believe it? Almost exactly to this day a year ago (just one day off, but who’s really counting!), we posted some fun lunch and bento box ideas for back to school (check out the post here). We’re back with a part 2 because that post was just so fun to write, and so many more lunch ideas have surfaced that we just had to share them!

For those of you that are not familiar with bento box lunches, let’s do a little bit of a recap from last year:

This creative way of lunching comes straight to us from Japan, and is now seen in many countries (and cafeterias around the globe). Many Japanese children bring elaborately decorated lunches (known as bento boxes) to school.

Without further ado, here are some fun lunch and bento box ideas for 2013 back to school!

Don’t you wish you had these back in school, cause we do! If you know a kid starting school soon, surprise them on the first day of school with a cute bento box. We adults may not be going back to school exactly, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy these cute lunches, as well!

Cozy Spring Picnic Inspirations

There’s a little bit more than a month left of spring (summer starts here in the northern hemisphere on Friday, June 21),  and while the weather is still breezy outside, we should enjoy the great outdoors as much as possible.

When I was young,  my family would always have springtime picnics by the lake. All we’d take with us is a picnic basket full of sandwiches and juice, and a few lawn chairs. Those were the days!

Let’s all channel back to our childhood and have a picnic this spring! Here are some of our favorite spring picnic inspiration pictures to get you going.
