LEMON WREATH

It’s September and it’s time for my personal wreath challenge again.
This year the summer in Germany was really cold and whenever on the internet, I was drawn to summery images… Yesterday you could take a glimpse on my personal favorites I found on the internet. I like those images not only for their summerly look, they also remind me of my trip to Italy last August. So with the bad weather outside I wanted to bring a fresh and colorful feeling to our home and created my own lemon wreath.Lemon wreath via Stilzitat blogNot knowing, how great the wreath would look next to my prickly pears in the kitchen, also Zinnias and withered nigellas compliment the late summer look and I am more than happy with the result of this colorful looking wreath.Lemon wreath via Stilzitat blogLemon wreath via Stilzitat blog Here and here you can look up the other wreaths I have made. hope to have brought a little more summer sunshine to you, have a great weekend!

LEMON WREATH – MY INSPIRATION

You guys,

I will show you my wreath tomorrow, but looking at my inspirational images, you sure will recognize, what the main theme will be all about! Lemons!Bildschirmfoto 2014-09-17 um 10.03.43

CENTERPIECE MADE OF IVY & BABY BREATH

My computer broke down, just on time for my birthday, luckily it was ‘just’ the battery charger and the problem was solved fast, as soon, as stores opened on monday. After I did some data saving, I can finally show you the centerpiece I prepared for my birthday.
For the longest I wanted to make a centerpiece out of ivy, I think it looks gorgeous, so natural & unpretentious.

I think this is all the explanation needed, for now I will leave you with the rest of the photos… Enjoy!

Oh, and just a funny note on the site: if your kitchen is not so close to the dining table, only think about this decoration if you have pleeeenty of time. With all this ivy on the table, it was not possible to put the food in the center, so I had to run to the kitchen quite some time…

WREATH OF THE MONTH – AUGUST

If you missed my last post about a fresh summery wreath, you missed a promise I made to myself: one wreath a month. Blog challenges really get me going and I started my very own challenge. I have always been drawn to wreaths – they have the most perfect shape and you can make a wreath of almost anything and also put it anywhere you want.Summer flowers wreath via Stilzitat blogThis new wreath is made of summer flowers, like sweet peas and pink Queen Anne’s Lace.
