Easter is the Holiday of the year that comes faster than expected – much like Christmas, but faster.
And guess what? It`s already here and I`m searching for decoration inspiration.
This is what I`ve found and loved so far.










What inspirational Easter deco photos have you found online? Please share. 

A cute necklace

13 January, 2013 — Leave a comment

I found this totally cute baker, cook, or chef necklace on easy today. It comes with a muffin pan charm, a butter charm, and a set of measuring spoons with a pretty brushed silver or gold aluminum hand stamped name disc topped with a silver or gold heart. Cute, right?

Tomorrow (January 10th 2013) evening I`ll be in Zug at the Riconi Art Gallery (Ober Altstadt 14) to support the Norwegian artist Anne Meier-Rörholt.
I will also be presenting Die Norwegische Hausfrau`s nut mixes so please stop by for some fine art, a glass of bubbles accompanied by tasty nuts.
Looking forward to see you – the Gallery Apéro starts at 18:00.


Throwing a New Years Eve dinner party is your chance to really go over the top with decorations.
Play with it and have fun – maybe think of a theme or subject your guests will appreciate.

I would advice you to stick to a three color palette and then I think you can add almost object.
More colors are usually more confusing to the eye than more shapes.
Other than that: no rules!

I have browsed the net for inspiration on how to decorate my own table for the last day of the year and these favorites I would like to share with you (click on images for larger view):

happynewyear_bruinbetasCandles always sets the mood.
Bring out the good napkins and old silver wear.

Don`t forget to set the clock!

happynewyeartable_marthastewartDinner for two?
Why not go with a rustic but elegant look?
