Green All Year Round

I like to use plants and flowers as part of my home interior expressing my personal style. 
That is why there this green all year round my bench.

The unusual display place and how well the Pachira aquatica has adapted to the blue vase make a special big green impact to my bench decor that easily changes with the seasons.

A small pause to my advent counting to enter NIB December challenge decorating with plants.

Just Add The Occasion

Ice cream and brownies before dinner for the kiddos! Whats the occasion? It is Friday and a free school day!

The kids were home from school and I wanted to surprise them with some goodies and what a perfect occasion to try this ice cream hack idea that I saw on Pinterest.

Instead of serving ice cream in a typical bowl I made brownies in a cupcake pan. I filled each cup about two-thirds full and put another cupcake pan on the top. Remember to spray the pans with cooking spray if you are going to try it.

I put the pans in the oven following the brownie recipe instructions. 
The brownies bowls are ready to use after the pans are completely cool.

Our favorite ice cream is cookie dough and here in Norway Diplom-Is has a yummy Yogurt Ice Cream Dream Cookie Dough!

The kids loved it! Easy to serve and fun to eat.

Green Love

Before the summer I put this Monstera leaf in one of my favorite vases from TineK Home with a some water. How big was my surprise when I came home for a long two months summer vacation to fine out that the leaf grew roots!

One leaf, so fragile yet so strong!

I just had plat it and hope that it will give me a new Monstera plant.

Pure green love.

#SoMe_greet Blog Event

What keeps me going and exited about social media is the opportunity to stay in touch with amazing and creative people. Thanks to bloggers like Fabelaktig Maia assisting to blog events have been wonderful experiences. It is impossible to pick up only one good memory from a Fabelaktig event. Not only she shares beautiful gifts from her sponsors, she also keep us inspired with workshops and speeches from talent entrepreneurs.


September 14th I took an airplane to Torp, Sandefjord Airport, 110 kilometers south of Oslo. My lovely blogger friend Linnea was kind to pick me up and we had a road drive to Langesund were we stayed at the Quality Hotel & Resort Skjaergarden. From there we head to the cute town of Brevik. 

This Fabelaktig #SoMe_greet event was hosted at the party shop Festfabriken and we got the opportunity to enjoy all the shop goodies, workshops by Tonerose Design and Unni Strand and inspirational speeches by Anemones Skafferi and Barnelykke

I let the rest of the pictures speak for themselves.

Red Carpet Theme Party For a 10 Year Old del 2.

More Red Carpet party inspiration! This time from my boy's party with his classmates.

All the kids got the opportunity to start the party rocking the red carpet as we took their pictures like 
real paparazzi.

 This ticket invitations from Ticket templates are absolute favorites. I only designed the glamourised picture perfect for the party´s theme, print and cut.

The table decorations were simple but very colorful and the large gold-letter balloons in honor of the birthday boy really pop-up under the party tent.

Popcorn cupcakes were a success, decorative and very easy to make. 
You only need mini marshmallows and regular cupcakes. I made chocolate and vanilla. Use clean scissors to cut an X shape on one side of the marshmallow. Put icing on the top of the cupcakes and press the mini marshmallows so the cupcake looks like a popcorn bag. Try blowtorching the marshmallows for natural popcorn look.

I used templates from Firsgradeteacherlady for fun party activities like giving student awards and personalize VIP back stage passes.

This was a really fun and memorable party! They kids enjoyed the food, the sweets and danced until their parents came to pick them up.

Color In The Bedroom

I am happy to enter this month NIB challenge "Color in the bedroom" with pictures of my boys blue bedroom.

You can say that this may look like coming from an IKEA catalog; Guilty!  We found there practical furniture, perfect for our boys and in our budget. We chose blue no because the conception that is a gender color but because after some research we found out that those with bedrooms in blue tones tend to get the best rest and wake up feeling happy and positive. We painted the walls with Clas Ohlson's painting Blue Sky.

For more color in the bedroom inspiration go to NIB. I am already inspired for my next projects one of them our master bedroom!

Red Carpet Theme Party For a 10 Year Old.

It was a very special occasion so I had to roll the red carpet for my son's 10 years birthday party.
I decorated with some simple details to make it fancy fun.

For the family reunion I decorated with gold balloons and stars hanging from the roof. 

The red table runner is actually gift wrapping paper that I pimped with gold stars.

I made a pennant with pictures of the birthday boy to hang on the window. I also put some pictures over the table, it was nice to look at them and comment some of our boy special moments while we were eating cake.

I personalized chips containers to make it more easy and fun to pick up snacks. Everybody put what they wanted on them. 

Blog mood is up again after a long summer absence. I have more party inspiration to share, personal experiences and ideas. I hope to reach back to my readers. 

See you soon!

The Beauty and The Beast

Last winter we made room in our master bedroom for a vanity corner. I gor the perfect opportunity to combine 2 elements in this room -"the beauty and the beast": the beauty is this easy and trendy DIY decoration for the mirror. The TV is the beast: sometimes I wish we didn't have it, but since we are addicted to some TV-series, this is somehow a "must"

My husband was in charge to hang the TV on the wall and my job was to decorate the vanity corner.

I was thinking what kind of mirror should l get there and I had no doubt about how it had to look. The original designer-mirror had a price that didn't match my budget, so I had to do something about it. The round mirror from IKEA was perfect for my project. I “framed” it with two belts to create the designer trendy look.

The lightning around the mirror was the tricky part but I found inspiration on another trendy style and made a hanger out of cooper tubes from Clas Ohlson for the lamp.

The lamp is also from Clas Ohlson, but I painted with cooper paint to make it pop! I was inspired by the Urban Jungle Bloggers and I put a plant on my bedroom - I love the heart shape leaves.

My husband made my wish come true painting the wall with a very nice Green Cooper color from Clas Ohlson. I ejoy the contrast the green and the brown and colors that pop like the yellow and coral from this HAY trays. The cute pyramid is from Annaleena Design.

I had so much fun doing this make over that took me several months.
