winter table decoration

One of the more fun and challenging things about being a florist is when you do table or party decorations. You often get to be a bit more artistic and daring, which can produce some really interesting results.
So this weekend was all about making center pieces for a friend that was having a party.
I love how this piece has such a natural and simple look, but yet very elegant. Its suits the winter season perfectly. /Sussi

HYDRANGEA WREATH

 The other week when I posted a bunch of images of my sister´s wreaths, I forgot to add a few pictures of this gorgeous piece. I think it would be a very elegant Christmas addition to the white country style. /Annika

 

moss tree

This is a fun little project. The tree with the pot is no more than 25 cm high and the moss ball is about 10 cm in diameter. You can of course make any size you want.
The stem of the tree is made from a branch that’s pressed into a piece of clay shaped to fit the pot and then cover the clay with mos. The moss ball that makes the shape of the tree is created from pressing moss together into a ball using thin wire to keep it in place. You make room for the top of the stem in the moss ball and glue or wire it together.
The three is now ready to be decorated with pinecones, Christmas balls and ribbon of your choice. Happy Project. /Sussi

 

adventspynt

This Tuesday's theme for fabriken was advent decoration which gave us an opportunity once again to be creative. I wanted to try out a more unconventional advent decoration and instead of the traditional wreath, I used a large tray, added four candles, filled it with moss, bark, pinecones and some Christmas glitter.
On one side of the tray I made room for a rustic pot with a Christmas rose.I like how the whole decoration feels like I just brought a piece of the garden inside. 

Happy Tuesday! /Sussi

 
 

furry wreath 'how to'

Since we have put a few wreaths on the site this week, we wanted to explain how they are made. This wreath is made out of fur, bark, pinecones, moss, Christmas balls and ribbon in a beautiful mix. It is easily put together with a glue gun, where all the pieces are being glued on a straw wreath.

You start by gluing all the main-materials on the straw wreath (fur, bark and ribbon). The peaces doesn´t have to be exactly square, it will make the end result more exciting. Now you have to fill in the "holes" with moss, pinecones and Christmas balls to finish the project.

This was one of my favorite projects, because the choice of materials was so different. It will make a wonderful peace on the wall for Christmas.
If you´ve got any question, feel free to leave a message.

Happy project. /Sussi

happy friday!

I thought I wanted to start your weekend of by posting this picture of this gorgeous wreath my sister made this week. It has such a natural and earthy feeling to it that you just feel like hugging it. 
This would go perfect on your wall if you like the white country style. I would even bring in that branch. They seem to be the perfect match.
My sister's work with flowers is a great inspiration to me. And that feels good, being inspired.
 
I hope you'll all feel inspired this weekend. Happy friday! /Annika

Later we'll post some 'how to's on the wreaths.

 

flower frenzy

So my sister went flower decoration crazy this week. She has been bombarding me with beautiful pictures of her latest arrangements. I know hyacinths are some of her favorites, because you can let part of the root show and that way you get to be a bit more creative when you arrange them.

Anyways...I will post more flower pictures later.
We should soon be starting our Christmas decoration frenzy.  
 
Hope you're all gonna stay tuned. / Annika
 
 

Contrast

I have had this wreath in mind for a quite a while now and since the exciting Tuesdays theme at Fabriken is contrasts, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally make it.
I do think the contrasts in life are what makes us think, feel and force us to make decisions...and from a creative perspective, thinking in contrast is what makes us use materials and colors differently and use combination that originally might not have suited each other. Without contrast the word challenge wouldn’t exist – We love contrasts (and challenges)...thank you, Fabriken for a great Tuesday theme. /Sussi

 

patina and terracotta pots

Perfection is not always the solution if you want to achieve a natural and rough look on your terrace. Often what adds character to a place, is history, giving it a worn look. A nice way to do this is getting all those old pots that you left behind the shed months ago, which has now gathered quite a mossy patina, and plant flowers to suit the seasons in them. This will make your terrace look authentic and earthy.
 
 
 

brisk wind and autumn colors

We love summer because it's warm, everything blossoms and we don't have to wear any shoes. When autumn comes, so does the rain (at least here in Scandinavia) and the question whether to wear boots when going into the garden is more a necessity than a choice. But autumn does offer an inspiring range of colors you don't get to see anytime else during the year. This makes those brutal and cold windy days an experience not to miss and the necessity becomes a choice. /sussi
