I love tea lights, and these beauties are just lovely.

Wouldn’t they be such romantic spring decor?

New Year’s Tips

If you are looking for great tips for tomorrow’s New Year party, I can really recommend a visit to Martha Stewart, which as usual offers lots of ideas for both preparations, festive decorations, food and activities around the New Year celebrations. Naturally I was very fond of the countdown champagne, party invitations and menu cards with die-cut glass, the delicate festoons that can be made of plain cardboard and the idea of dressing a serving tray with gold wrapping paper.

Tips for autumn table settings

Tips til efterårs borddækning

A simple way to get new inspiration for table settings are from furniture catalogs. This picture comes from the U.S. interior company West Elm.

En enkel måde at få ny inspiration til borddækning er fra møbelkataloger. Det her billede kommer fra det amerikanske indretningsfirma West Elm.

Here are a few of their tips:

  • Hang cards on twigs on top of soup plates.
  • Place large candles in vases of colored glass as a beautiful eye catcher in the middle of the table.
  • Use colored cardboard between plates to achieve a fun contrast.
  • Find the gold-colored Christmas decorations and use them between the lights.
  • Turn the cover napkin to the narrow part, and let the lower portion of the napkin hang over the table edge.

Her er er et par af de tips man kan hente hos dem:

  • Hæng et bordkort på en kviste oven på suppe tallerknen.
  • Placer store bloklys i vaser i farvet glas som et smukt blikfang midt på bordet.
  • Anvend farvet karton underlag mellem tallerknerne for at opnå en sjov kontrast.
  • Find de guldfarvede julekugler frem og læg dem mellem lysene som dekoration.
  • Vend dækkeservietterne på den smalle led, og lad den nederste del af servietten hænge ud over bordkanten.

It’s pretty…….

Det er så smukt……….

…… and it’s so easy to make, and looks really refreshing. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few flavored waters in the fridge, next time you have guests? Maybe cucumber, mint, lemon, orange…..

… og så er det let at lave, og ser virkelig forfriskende ud. Ville det ikke være rart at have et par vand med smag i køleskabet, næste gang du får gæster? Måske agurk, mynte, citron, appelsin…..

More Hallowe’en

Hello and good morning

Hej og godmorgen

Here are some photos of how I had decorated for Hallowe’en yesterday.

Her ser du lidt foto af hvordan jeg havde Hallowe’en pyntet i går.

We had guests….. and it was a very nice evening….

Vi havde gæster….. og det var hyggeligt….

Unfortunately I don’t feel well today…… perhaps I should have kept away from the alcohol…..

I dag har jeg det desværre ikke så hyggeligt…… jeg skulle måske nok have holdt lidt igen med drikkevarerne…..

Our lovely guests had brought this wonderful hostess gift, consisting of homemade cookies…… but “unfortunately” I missed serving them…….

Vores søde gæster havde medbragt denne skønne værtindegave, bestående af hjemmebagte småkager…… som jeg “uheldigvis” glemte at servere…….

Maybe a DVD movie, milk and cookies are a good cure against this awful hangover? I think I crawl to the couch, and test it.

Måske er en DVD film, mælk og småkager en god kur mod tømmermænd? Jeg tror jeg kravler ind på sofaen og tester det.

Have a nice Sunday
Ha en dejlig søndag

Halloween party 1

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The first one said,
“Oh my, it’s getting late.”
The second one said,
“But we don’t care.”
The third one said,
“I see witches in the air.”
The fourth one said,
“Let’s run, and run, and run.”
The fifth one said,
“Get ready for some fun.”
Then whoosh went the wind,
and out went the lights,
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Autumn


As traces of life begin to fade, as summer times
are fleeting bye, I ponder what ghosts will might
carry in along the autumn winds and trickle to
the ground in colours of richest reds and burnt
ambers only to join the ground once more, waiting
to be reborn with the spring.

Pesky party problem

Don’t you hate it when you are at a party and you get caught up in the festivities, put your drink down, and then have no idea which one is yours?

Hader du ikke bare når du er til fest, og du bliver fanget i festlighederne og kommer til at sætte din drink ned, og efterfølgende ikke har en idé om, hvilken en der er din?

I found a solution for this pesky problem on the internet…… take a look at this handy project — they’re so cute!

Jeg har fundet en løsning på dette lille problem på internettet … … prøv at se disse smarte drinkspinde - de er så fine!

Supplies:
1. Assorted decorative papers
2. Scissors
3. Glue - a glue stick works best for most papers
4. Wooden skewers or drink stirrers
5. Alphabet stickers - should coordinate with papers

Materialer:
1. Assorted dekorativt papir
2. Saks
3. Lim - en lim stik er bedst
4. Træ pinde eller sugerør
5. Alfabet klistermærker - bør koordinere med papirer

Directions:
1. Cut decorative papers into 1″ by 2″ rectangles.
2. Apply glue and fold in half around tops of wooden skewers. Let dry.
3. Place flags and sheets of alphabet stickers next to drinks, so your guests can mark a flag with their initial.

Sådan gør du:
1. Cut dekorative papirer i 1 X 2 rektangler.
2. Påfør lim og fold i halvdelen omkring toppe af træpind (eller sugerør). Lad tørre.
3. Stil flag og alfabet klistermærker ud for drikkevarerne, så dine gæster har mulighed for at markere et flag med deres initialer.
