FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!
I decided to shoot the nursery before baby girl get´s here simply because I am sure I will have plenty of pictures with her later on and it is just easier to take photos without a newborn (at least that is what I think).
The theme of the nursery is jungle book or lots of animals. It came together easily as the room was already nicely painted when we moved in so we decided to leave it that way and figure out what to do with the room as we needed it (side note – we both absolutely loathe painting so this was a nice surprise).
First thing I ever got for this room were the banana leaf curtains from H&M and then I went from there with all white furniture, a golden carpet matching the tipi and the floor and lots of stuffed animals you can also find in the prints on the wall.
One of the highlights definitely is the customized name plate above her bed. I have found it at an Etsy shop and it came very quick made of great quality. Going to link the shop here.
Since I started working on the room before we even knew what gender our baby had this makes the perfect gender neutral nursery.
Do you prefer more or less color for home decor in general ? Would you go with a green wall?
and welcome to my first holiday post regarding the Easter festivities. No one knows if it is possible to celebrate Easter with anyone else than the people you are quarantined at home this year but nevertheless I wanted to share a colorful Easter table scape in yellow and navy. I just love to create table decoration set ups. This is were I can be super creative.
For this years Easter holiday my color theme is yellow and navy. I absolutely love a bright yellow for every- and anything and my Easter decor for 2020 makes no exception here. The place mats are the same I have in several colors and I really like the material and shape. A woven place mat is perfect for Spring weather and upcoming holidays.
The cutest pieces of the whole table decor definitely are the yellow bunny napkin rings. The contrast with the navy cotton napkins makes the color pop right away.
Another cuter addition to the set up are the ceramic eggs in different colors and the little happy easter signs.
And for the frittata recipe, this is what you need:
– 4 teaspoons of milk
– 8 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt (if you want to add more feta leave the salt unless it is too much)
– scallions chopped
– 100 g cheddar cheese
– 150 g feta cheese
– 1 avocado to add as topping after baking)
– mix the eggs, milk and salt together and put into oven pan
I hope you had a great weekend. The only purpose of our weekend was eating. I guess there are days were it is the only thing that sounds great. And oh boy we had a bunch of awesome meals.
Speaking of meals, as you might know I am hosting a family Christmas dinner on the first Christmas holiday each year and I love myself a pretty table scape. I have done plenty throughout the year but one of my favorite is always Christmas. There are just more possibilities for Christmas than any other holiday of the year.
For this years Christmas table scape I went with red as our tree is red as well and I have to admit I wasn´t so happy with my idea at first but found some pretty great pieces on amazon that changed my mind.
The poinsettia table runner is a real beaut and I totally love how it looks with the metallic red plates. From here I decided to go with golden cutlery cause the gold also is in the runner. I had the white napkin rings for ages and never used them cause they never really fit but there is a time for everything and the time is now. To add a playful touch to the table I added candy canes to the napkins. Not only do they fit in theme and color they also add a nice little guest present to the setting.
Also have you noticed our new dining room table. Got it in last weekend just in time for Christmas. It is supposed to fit a lot more people than our white table.
we are in the countdown to Christmas or at last in the middle of preparations for the biggest holiday of the year. So with all the different customer services stores have to offer you can almost everywhere get your gifts wrapped and place them under the tree the minute you get home.
I don´t like to make use of this service cause first of all I love gift wrapping and second of all you can give every present a personal note so that the person who receives it knows exactly it is from you. It is so easy to personalize each gift.
These are the things you will need: gift wrapping paper, bows, little ornaments and branches, little cards or gift tags and eventually empty boxes. All of these things are available everywhere at this time of the year.
If you have soft gifts or gifts with a strange shape it is best to put them in a box first cause the present turns out more pretty if you have a rectangular box to work with.
The last of my presents are coming in tomorrow so I am going to be done gift wrapping by the end of the week. I like to wrap them up as early as possible cause it looks super decorative and festive under my tree.
Are you gifting a personal note with every gift or do you love the convenient wrapping stations at the department stores?
