Backyard Picnic Playlist

It’s in our sights — finally. Summer.  And the time is right. For dancin’ in the backyard.

What’s the best way to kick off your summer? Hosting an intimate backyard picnic with good friends, good eats and, of course, good tunes.

We love the combo of Watermelon & Heirloom Tomato Salad, The Ultimate Patty Melt, Blueberry Coleslaw and Peach Ginger Bellinis coupled with Talking Heads, Bill Withers, Edward Sharpe and Amy Winehouse.

Here’s a playlist of 10 great tracks to get you started on the first of hopefully many summer soirees at home.
