Midsummerparty!


Time just fly too fast here at home. We have been so busy with the girl’s rooms in the attic and everything has been so messy and dirty that blogging almost was impossible for me to do. 

But today I finally got my studio back and all the boxes has been emptied and the rooms upstairs are almost finished. I just need to do a few things before I show you what we have done for the girls. 

But other things have also taken place here at home. A few weeks ago I turned 40, and last Saturday (the Danish midsummer evening ‘Sankt Hans’) we celebrated it here at home.  I love to decorate for a party and this time I made vases of tin cans decorated with vintage fabric, I folded paper flowers in bright colors for the plates and bought lovely colorful flowers placed in clear bottles all over the table. It really gave a beautiful summer feeling even though it wasn’t that warm here. The party was absolutely great and we enjoyed a perfect Mexican buffet and enden the evening with a little fire in the garden.

  2. Stort tillykke med fødselsdagen, Marianne. Hvor er det dog et smukt bord. Dejligt, at du havde en god fødselsdag - og Skt. Hans - trods manglen på varme. Her i Danmark regnede det hele dagen, men der hvor jeg var klarede det mirakuløst op ud på aftenen, og blev til en smuk solbeskinnet midsommeraften. Det var dejligt:-)
    Håber snart både du og vi heroppe får sol og varme:-)
    Knus og endnu engang tillykke med dagen.
    Kate

    1. hej Kate,
      Tak for din hilsen. Vi havde en dejlig fest og vejret var her dagen tørt hele, men det blæste godt. Havde håbet det kunne have været udenfor, men det blev det ikke. Først efter maden trak vi lidt udenfor for at nyde et lille ildsted i haven.

    Utrolig herlig og fargerikt bord!
    Min dag ble feiret på en solseng på Kreta. DET kan også anbefales! ;)
