It's National Picnic Month! Bring The Park To Your Place With These Pretty Table Ideas (PHOTOS)

It's the first day of July, and that means it's officially the start of National Picnic Month. But if you're not exactly into the idea of throwing down a blanket and eating in the grass, you can still channel the park in your own home -- with a classic picnic table. This traditional piece can work wonders in your outdoor space because its bench-style seating is big enough to seat lots of guests comfortably. Plus, it adds a rustic feeling that will totally remind your visitors of summertime.

The best part though is how you can dress it up anyway you'd like -- without getting in trouble from a ranger. That's why we've rounded up 10 pretty picnic table ideas to help you celebrate the month and get inspired to dine alfresco.
