Beautiful idea for Christmas Afternoon Tea or just dessert table
Hello my Darlings , this year my pre Christmas time has not been relaxed as I wanted , I just simply running out of the time day after day , but today finally I had a chance to plan my Christmas Eve table decorations , I used my imagination and this is what happened - I used little green branches from my Christmas tree , added a tiny bobble with raffia nest and sprinkled with sparkling icing sugar ( yes , so simple ) ! Also I have the idea of Christmas tree shaped black pepper cookie with tiny bunch of green pine and some decorations ( even more simpler )
I will try to post more Christmas inspiration or even gift wrapping ideas , fingers crossed I will find some spare time for that :) .. and here is few questions for you girls : how do you planning to celebrate Christmas ? any particular food or cake ? what about table decorations ? what kind of traditions you keep in your family ? and what about gifts , everything ready and wrapped ?
Hello Darlings , here is recent project of mine , I love transforming something dusty and forgotten into something truly beautiful !
Painted in Annie Sloan Old White . Before that it was a very sad , dark and unloved piece of stunning furniture , now it's stunning , even thought that originally I bought it to sell :) I am thinking of " keep " now :)
I am apologising for posting so rarely , but I just simply don't have enough time , seriously , I am wondering how I do everything , I am always on the run , it's always something ..
At the moment while both of my babies are sleeping I am editing little Christmas post so stay tuned !
It's an early July morning and me my daughter decided to explore my beautiful city again. There is something special about those early city mornings, so fresh, calm and relaxing.. My 7 year old and I were strolling around with my 6 month old baby in the pram. It's not very comfortable at the times on the cobbled streets, large foot paths. I guess that's the reason you rarely see mums with prams walking around. That's Riga for you :) Anyway , we were near Dzirnavu street and when I heard Dzirnavu street I am thinking Arbooz cafe where I went last year and was blown away by their macaroons and cupcakes ! Unfortunately it was just after 9 and it was still closed ..I was so looking forward to my morning coffee. We blended in with the tourists exploring Art Noveau on Antonijas street and surprisingly we discovered another great morning coffee place AllCappuccino with a lovely Parisian setting to it...( picture below ) ! After a lovely coffee and some cuddles to a black cat who was sleeping next to us on the chair , we finally went to Arbooz ! 10 o ' clock and the doors are kindly open to macaron lovers :) one coffee done another still to go :) Energy on full :)
Even thought Arbooz kafe is tiny it's totally worth it , macarons there are the best , 10 out of 10 , cupcakes delicious , cute coffee cups and lovely Girl behind the counter who complimented me and my daughter and definitely made our day even sweeter !
Another project of mine painted in Annie Sloan Old White , get your paint here
I hope you are enjoying my photography , I just can't resist my love for peonies :)
Coffee is about Enjoying the moment !
