Lit up picnic in Kings Park

Tonight my friend Nhi and I surprised our good friend Ruth with a surprise picnic. This wasn't just any ordinary picnic though, this was a picnic surrounded by lights! We kidnapped Ruth and took her to Kings Park where we told her that we were going to have a picnic and watch the city lights turn on as the sun went down. What we didn't tell her though, was that when the sun went down we would blind-fold her and set up a picnic area surrounded with solar lights, fairy lights and lanterns. 

The set up actually turned out so much better than any of us could have imagined, and Ruth was very surprised. Success! Lots of people complimented our lights picnic too. It was super cool because some of the lights that we got slowly changed colour. Lots of couples walked past, and I swear we must have given at least half of the guys ideas for how they'd like to propose to their partners :P

The best part about the night was that there were fireworks!! I wish I knew how to organise fireworks for someone special, but alas these were for some Christmas celebration going on along the foreshore. It was such a great night. The weather was beautiful, we were in great company with good food, surrounded by lights, a gorgeous view of the city lights, and fireworks to top it all off. Perfection.
