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 :)

SUNDAY INSPIRATION

The weather is beautiful here this weekend and we are trying to be outside as much ass possible. Easter is getting closer and today I'm showing you a quick little decoration that will make a perfect hostess gift. Use cut flowers of your choice and stick them into a piece of flower foam. Cover the foam with plastic and place it in your nest/container. Add a small figur or some eggs for decoration.
 
Have a beautiful Sunday! /Annika

WRAP SOME LOVE

I like giving gifts. It makes me happy to surprise someone with something unexpected. It can sometimes be difficult to choose or come up with a great idea for a gift, but often less is more. You can go out into your garden, collect a few flowers, wrap them in simple brown paper and some gorgeous ribbon, and you have turned your organic homegrown flowers into an expensive looking bouquet...filled with more love and care than any random flower from a store ever will contain. It will never be about the amount of money you spend, but the thought behind and the effort you have put into it. So go out and wrap some love in a simple piece of brown paper, and surprise someone you hold dear.
 
Have a beautiful day! /Annika
 
 

WEDNESDAY NESTING

Do you ever get creative ideas when you dream? Well, I do and the other day I woke up, having dreamed about a flower nest made from Gypsophila or also called Baby's Breath, with some eggs and small flowers in the middle. I don't know whether this was a symbolic dream or if it needs any pondering...except it's always inspiring to wake up in the morning with creative ideas.
This small decoration will last a long time, since Gypsophila is quite beautiful, when it's dried too and you can occasionally change the flowers in the eggs for another color or fresher look.
 
Have a great day! /Annika

 

 

MONDAY FLOWERS

Hello dear readers! Hope you're all well? I'd  like to apologize for our very sparse posting over the last week. Things has been a bit busy around here and sometimes life just takes over :-). I'm pretty sure you know how that feels.
Today I just wanted to post a few pictures of a really cute decoration. A simple viola in a small glass/jar, where the roots are visible, is very decorative. You can add some moss and an egg to create a bit of easter feel.
My grandmother loved violas and when I was a kid she used to tell me, that you could see a little queen sitting in the middle of the flower and that the petals were her stupendous colorful dress. So every time I see a viola, I'm reminded of my grandmother and her love for flowers. It's a beautiful way to remember a person. 
 
Have a wonderful Monday! /Annika
 
 

 

 

Easter Decoration

I love working with natural materials and after having moved to our new house last summer, with a garden that is filled with lovely trees and bushes, I can just take a step outside, and I'll find an enormous amount of inspiration right in front of me. We were told that the previous owners planted 25 different kind of trees here.
 
This decoration is suited for both in- and outdoor. Use it as a centerpiece for Easter-Lunch or place it outside, where it will stay a beautiful decoration for a long time, when it´s still cold outside (even though the tulips are without water). The plate is made out of birch branches. Form a ring from the branches, and secure with wire. Add branches untill you get the size you want. Leave the tulips without water for a couple of hours, that will make it easier to bend them, and secure them with wire. Finish the decoration by placing eggs in different colours and sizes in the middle.
 
Have a wonderful Sunday /Sussi

SPRING IN A POT

This flower pot is one of my favorite choices, for when I make flower arrangement. Like a lot of my stuff, this one is also found at a flea market. The seller had left the pot outside for a long time, so he was surprised that he was able to sell it. But to me it was just perfect :-) Of course I hardly had to pay anything for it. 
The arrangement is made out of Muscari and Viola in a wonderful mix, some mos, small pieces of bark and some branches. 
 
Have a nice Tuesday :-) /Sussi  
 
 

MUSCARI CENTERPIECE

As I mentioned the other day, Sussi was going to make this beautiful spring decoration. We are having a birthday party today, so the decoration is made as a centerpiece.
 
You can make this with pretty much any cut flower of your choice. The flowers are stuck into a piece of flower foam. The bark is functioning as the vase/container and the foam is covered with brown sand and some moss. This is a fairly easy project with lots of room for creative ideas. Have a great Saturday! /Annika
