Boxing Day brunch

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Tapaninpäivän brunssista tulikin tänä vuonna enemmän lounas kuin brunssi. Teimme paahtopaistia, ihania valkosipuli & salvia paistinperunoita, ruusukaalia pinjansiemenillä, parmesaanin kanssa uunissa paahdetuja neulapapuja ja salaattia jossa oli syvänvihreiden lehtien lisäksi punajuurta, hunajapaahdettuja pähkinöitä ja kuivattuja karpaloita. Leivoin aamulla tuoreita sämpylöitä ja tarjolla oli myös joululimppua, suolakidevoita ja toki vielä juustojakin. Jälkiruuaksi tarjosimme jouluisia kakkuja, itse leivottua maustekakkua ystäväni äidin huikealla reseptillä tehtynä, Fortnum & Masonilta Lontoosta tuomaani Englantilaista joulukakkua ja panettonea. Sen lisäksi oli vielä suklaita ja itsetehtyjä piparkakkuja. Joimme jälkiruokakahvit takkatulen ääressä.

Our little butterfly

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Cotton Candy turned nine. Nine years old! She is not a baby anymore. We had a very simple and chic party for her that we had invited family and Godparents to. We served a vegetarian lasagna with some salad and wine and afterwards cake and ice-cream with whipped cream and meringues ( usually the kids favourite). Here are a few photos from the party…

Tea party

by Sofia   -   in Party planning  Random

I feel like I´ m here apologising about my absence all the time! Finally some posts coming up. First the tea party!

You may remember that we have a standing yearly tradition to host a tea party to our daughters with my friend. Every other year in our home and every other in theirs. When the girls are old enough we will take them to have proper afternoon tea in London. This year was our turn to host again. We had a bit of an english countryside rose tea party. More relaxed and less fancy than our first one ( next time I think we will do a French tea party…). Here are some pictures I snatched on my phone ( the battery had died on my camera and I did not want to hold the party until it was alive again and ready for action).

This year I made the flower arrangements myself. I think they turned out really well and these lasted for a very long time. I made them in to a flower sponge.
