PUMPKINS AND PINK COLORS

FRUIT BOWLS

This post is kind of a continuation of our previous post, since we are still decorating with chrysanthemums. Now don't go thinking that we have become chrysanthemum crazy or anything, it's just that they are so easy to work with and the possibilities seems to be pretty endless with these kind of flowers :)
 
This is also another way to decorate with flowers. Very casually placed in a bowl, together with some other decorative objects, they make an adorable and somewhat different table decoration or arrangement. It's all about the contrasts.
 
 
 They are made the same way as the other chrysanthemum decoration, but using a ball shaped piece of flower foam instead.
 
 
 
Since this looks like a fruit bowl, you might want to let people know they are for decoration purpose only and not of the edible kind :)
 
Have a fabulous weekend. / Annika & Sussi

 

LASTING FLOWER DECORATION

Flower decorations are a beautiful addition to an everyday table setting and shouldn't only be limited to parties. But it can sometimes be very expensive to use cut flower and they don't really last as long as potted flowers or plants. However there are some really cute, inexpensive and long lasting cut flowers out there. Chrysanthemum flower are some of the most low maintenance cut flowers around and can easily last for two weeks. They are available in a variety of colors and you can often get them in bunches at your local market.
 
For this decoration we have used flower-foam, soaked in water, and then cut it to fit the pot/container. Cut flowers of you choice and stick them into the flower-foam, starting from the middle and work you way out. You can always fill in little gaps later on. You can make this decoration last longer if you occasionally water the flower-foam.
 
Let us know if you have any questions.
Happy project! /Sussi & Annika
 

 

THE LOVE OF GIVING

I love giving presents and I especially love when they are homemade. I like the idea of putting some of my thoughts and time into making it a bit special. Anyone can go out and buy a gift, but it's something else to receive a present, when you know that someone has sat down and spent time creating it specially for you. 
 

This is actually a fun and rather quickly put together project. A bunch of roses have been placed in an old tin can and you simply decorate the can with a sticker, with any text or image of you choice, either buy some or make them yourself. This way you have a great hostess gift or maybe you need to tell that special someone, just how much you love them.

 
Have a great Thursday

LITTLE HERB GARDENS

Is this not a gorgeous time of year or what? I'm loving the contrast of having spent so much time indoor during winter, to this craving for fresh air you get, when spring is finally here....every minute outside seems so precious. 
I think a lot of us dream of large vegetable gardens, fresh food on the table every day and preferably home grown. I personally don't have time to do this at the moment, all though I dream of it. So you often make the best of what you have and I just love little low maintenance herb gardens. You can place them pretty much anywhere and they don't have to take up much space.

I used an old fruit crate for this one, a small bag of potting soil, which I made a few holes in, to fit the herbs, and placed the bag of soil into the crate. Quick and easy and I can move it around however I feel like.

Have a great Wednesday! / Annika & Sussi
 
 

REMEMBER MOTHER'S DAY

Spring is a busy season when it comes to flowers. We have been spending quite a lot of time in the flowershop and Sunday this week, is Mother's Day here in Denmark. It's probably the busiest day of the year, when it come comes to flowers, and we are preparing big time. The next couple of days is going to be a nonstop production of bouquets and decorations. Hectic, but fun!
 
May you have a beautiful day! /Sussi & Annika
 
 

 

VILD ROSES

I love to take things out of its usual element and place it in not so common situations or surroundings. It creates contrast and that often helps us to appreciate things more and continue to see them for what they really are.
A rose is often seen as a very contained and elegant flower, mostly associated with decorations, bouquets, flower arrangements, weddings etc. But placing it out of its ordinary environment, the beauty and complexity of this flower will shine through in ways you never thought possible. It will assure you of its character and strengths and tell you that; to possess such elegance and beauty....you have to be a bit wild at heart.
 
Have a beautiful Thursday! /Annika
 
 
 

EASTER TABLE

What a weekend! The weather is incredible here. Our Easter Sunday was spent in good company and with great food. Sussi made this gorgeous tablesetting and decoration, and it was perfect. It was a delight to photograph. We made a fire that night and sat outside untill late. It's amazing how warm it was and today might just be even warmer. Feels like July.
 
I hope you all had a great Easter! Happy Easter Monday to all! /Annika
 

 

HAPPY EASTER!

We want to wish you all a happy easter! Things have been busy here lately and  I have been spending quite some time at Sussi's work, helping out with the easter rush. The weather is amazing here, so warm that you hardly believe it's only April.
This weekend we'll be posting some pictures of our Sunday Easter table and Sussi is going to make this gorgeous decoration. I can't wait to take pictures:)
 
May you all have a fabulous Good Friday! /Annika
 
 

COLORFUL COFFEE BREAKS

The weather has been insanely gorgeous the last couple of days and I crab every opportunity available, to be outside preparing the garden and enjoying the sun. This weekend I have been making a couple of trays with a bit of easter feel. It's just a mix of spring flora, some bark, moss, a pot and a couple of eggs. Everything just randomly put together. 
 I love how a simple decoration like this on the garden table light up the deck and how that cup of afternoon coffee just taste so much better, when there are flowers on the table to enjoy as well.
 
Have a great Tuesday! /Sussi
p.s. we will be posting a few easter projects this week, so stay tuned :)
 
Have a look at Fabriken for more great Tuesday inspiration.
