Inspiration for Swedish Midsummer

It's the Swedish holiday, Midsummer,  tomorrow. Whether or not, it's your holiday, isn't is a great excuse to make something pretty and flowery?  

Make Flower Crowns (and more)  We're super excited for the day and I've done a little Swedish Midsummer Inspiration board for you with glimpses into they day, DIY for the holiday and recipes.


We have family visiting so I'm really brewing up ideas for tomorrow (In fact, we've already started.)

My nieces are already preparing white dresses and know that they'll have flower projects, strawberries to pick and most likely ... a rainy picnic. But, yes, even if the weather forecast predicts rain, we'll follow local tradition which says: dress the midsummer picnic table, run inside quickly with everything from our midsummer picnic table: repeat, indefinitely and according to legend: the next day Summer will begin! We're crossing fingers.

As always, we're so happy to meet you here! I really love sharing midsummer because it's accompanied with the midnight sun and a relaxed feeling of Summer's arrival. Along with my nieces, we're counting down the kids last few hours of school --- just one more reason to celebrate this week. If you follow us on Instagram, you night have more glimpses of the week and we look forward to meeting you right back here again soon!
