Heading to one of the music festivals or live music at the beach or park? Or maybe you just want to mix things up and have a meal with a view. Here is a list of places that can help you elevate your picnic or just take the stress out of cooking!

Picnic – a Local bakery and café located on Bellevue Ave across from Hotel Viking. They love a good picnic, it’s in their name, so much so that they sell picnic baskets so you can place a food order and a basket order all at once!

The Roasted Clove – Newport County’s newest deli, they are family friendly with easy online ordering and catering options.

Bellevue Boards –Located on Broadway Offers fresh & delicious cheese and charcuterie boards, picnic boxes & grazing tables. They even named the picnic boxes after the local beaches!

Stoneacre Picnics –a local company that created a business that elevates everyday picnics and turns them into full-service, curated and catered affairs. 

Potter League …

If you are an animal lover, you are probably familiar with the Potter League. This organization is more than a place to adopt adorable pets. They have behavior and training programs, educational seminars, food pantry, pet loss support, and other support services. We wanted to give them a shout out because one of their biggest fundraisers of the year was canceled due to weather and they need the support of our community. Yappy Hour was set to take place on July 16th and the money raised from this event provides essential care and veterinary services for orphaned animals throughout the year. If you are interested in supporting them please click here to learn more.


Wall paneling has come a long way in the last few years. It is an inexpensive way to dress up a room or add your own personal style to a blank space. There are seven types of paneling you can put in your home: Wainscoting, Beadboard, Shiplap, Board and Batten, Coffered Panels., Raised Panels and Flat Panels. The Spruce has written a great article breaking down the styles and how they are constructed.
