Backyard Party - Scandinavian Style

A few days ago we had a campfire in the backyard. We cooked our food over the open flame and had a really good time. The kids had a blast making s'mores and popcorn!

My friend brought over some fresh raspberries from her garden and we made a traditional layer cake with fresh berries and custard and topped with wipped cream. It was fun to decorate the cake - all the flowers and leaves were fresh - and completly edible!

Did you ever cook your own food over an open fire? Any tips or favorite recipies to share?

Simple Accessories

Antique perfume bottles look gorgeous even without flowers. But dress them with a one or two flowers and you have a perfectly charming look. Other types of old or new bottles may be used as well.

The world's best blueberries.

 Finding and collecting blueberries was something I used to love as a child. 
And now that I'm all grown up I take my own child to pick blueberries.
I think the best blueberries are the ones you find and pick yourself.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
