DOOR WREATH

Christmas is not really Christmas without decorations and a wreath on the door is a must. And as always we like to make use of slightly different materials.  This wreath is as elegant as it is natural.
 
 
You'll need these materials:
 
- a straw wreath
- glue gun
- metal pins or wire
- pieces of fur
- butcher paper
- different shaped pine-cones
- pieces of bark
- Christmas ornament balls
- chiffon fabric
 
 
Start by taking your straw wreath and attaching pieces of fur with glue, and paper and chiffon with pins or wire to cover the front and sides. The paper can be crumpled to give it a more casual look and the chiffon can be folded in small flower like piles to create movement.
 
 
When the wreath is covered, you can glue on pine-cones, pieces of bark and Christmas balls where you see fit. Because you're using natural material, like bark and pine-cones, this will not be a 'one solution only' wreath. This wreath will take shape as you work on it. 
 
 
Merry 4. December.

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

WEDDING INSPIRATION

Wedding decoration can be really inspirational. There are so many beautiful sites out there, where you can get great ideas for the home, a dinner party or maybe they'll even spark the idea of redoing your bedroom.
We have a small family wedding coming up and we are researching ideas for table decorations and the bridal bouquet. It's a fun and very enjoyable task :-) Some of our favorite sites are Portobello Bride. What are you favorite wedding sites?
 
Have a great Monday! /Annika & Sussi
 
 

LOVELY SYRINGA COLORS

 
Lilacs equals spring to me. The variety of colors they come in are breathtaking and they make such great bouquets and decorations. 
 
It is said that Purple lilac symbolizes "first emotions of love" in the language of flowers. (Wikipedia)
 
The story of lilac, according to Greek mythology, begins with a beautiful nymph named Syringa (lilac’s botanical name). Captivated by her beauty, Pan, the god of the forests and fields, chased Syringa through the forest. Frightened by Pan’s affections, Syringa escaped him by turning herself into an aromatic bush – the flower we now refer to as lilac. (teleflora.com)
 
Have a great day! /Sussi & Annika
 
 
 

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

Have a beautiful Sunday everyone! /Sussi & Annika
 
Have a look at Fabriken for more inspiration.
 
 

 

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
