Spring Picnic Bento #46

Newer Older

I made this picnic bento for the Spring Contest sponsored by Bento & Co., Just Bento, and French Bento. I hope I win something because I worked extra hard on this and it took me forever to finish. I am exhausted!

Things that come to my mind when I think of spring are animals, flowers, and fresh fruit/veggies so I knew I had to somehow incorporate all of that into my bento and i decided to go with a picnic bento for my family.

the first tier has ham and cheese sandwiches, animal onigiri, quail egg chicks in a soba nest, veggie flowers, and some tuna salad.

the second tier i have 3 homemade mini cherry pies, some potato salad, and fresh fruit
