God fredag aften alle sammen. Som lovet, kommer der her lidt (okay, mange) billeder af borddækningen til navngivningsfesten. Jeg havde ikke så meget tid til at forevige det hele, inden gæsterne troppede op, så billederne står desværre ikke helt skarpe - men mon ikke I alligevel kan danne jer et indtryk af, hvordan det hele blev :-) 

Servicet var, som tidligere nævnt, lejet gennem A Table Story, som jeg på det varmeste kan anbefale. De smukke tallerkner fra K.H. Würtz klædte maden på smukkeste vis, og sammen med krystalglassene og det både pæne og praktiske bestik fra Cutipol blev borddækningen lige, som jeg havde ønsket mig. Bordene var lidt dumme ift. bordben, så der endte med at blive lidt langt mellem kuverterne, men det var vist også det eneste, der ikke gik helt efter planen. 

Jeg havde selv lavet bordkort og menuer med illustrationerne fra Anja Mulder, og ellers var bordene pyntet meget enkelt med en blanding af pluk-selv blomster og lidt godt-og-blandet fra vores lokale blomster-pusher, bl.a. de blå agapanthus, som også stod i barokhaven. Det eneste 'pynt', vi ellers havde i rummet, var de tre store billeder af Saxo, som Maria Franck tog tilbage i februar.  

Håber, I får en dejlig weekend.     


Happy Friday everybody. As promised, here you have a bunch of pictures of the table setting. Unfortunately, I didn't have that much time to capture the setting before the guests arrived, but I think you can get a pretty good impression of it all anyway :-)

The tableware was as earlier mentioned rented through A Table Story, who I can highly recommend. The stunning plates from K.H. Würtz really made the food look great and together with the crystal glasses and the both pretty and practical cutlery from Cutipol, it all turned out exactly as I hoped for  - maybe even better. The tables were a bit unpractical in terms of the table legs, so the distance between each setting was a bit longer than I wanted - but that was about the only thing that didn't go exactly as planned.

I designed the menus and place cards myself with use of the illustrations made by Anja Mulder. The tables were otherwise very simply decorated with a mix of self-picked flowers and flowers and greens from our local flower pusher, for instance the same blue agapanthus as in the manor house garden. Besides that, the only 'decoration' in the room were the three big pictures of Saxo that Maria Frank took back in February. 

Have a lovely weekend. 

Saxo's Naming Celebration - The Venue

Så er vi endelig på den anden side af Saxo's navngivningsfest, Mads er startet på job igen og jeg har taget hul på den sidste måneds barsel. Pyh, tiden flyver. Men vi havde sådan en fin fest i lørdags - med alle vores kære omkring os, til at fejre livet, kærligheden og vores lille dreng. 

Det gik hurtigt op for mig, at jeg havde alt for mange billeder til ét indlæg. Så nu bliver de lige delt lidt op. Her får I lidt stemningsbilleder fra stedet, vi holdte festen - nemlig i orangerierne på Gl. Estrup (en smuk, gammel herregård på Djursland, der også fungerer som landbrugsmuseum). Billederne er fra den barokhave, der støder op til orangerierne. Den er så smuk, og overalt står de blå agapanthus. Flottere rammer for en fest kan man vist ikke ønske sig. 

Saxo's naming celebration took place last Saturday, Mads is back at work and there is less than a month left of my maternity leave. Phew, time flies. But we had such a lovely day Saturday - with all our loved ones gathered to celebrate our life, love and son. 

I quickly realised that I had way too many pictures for a single blog post, so I decided to spilt them up in two, maybe three. So here you have a few pictures from the venue - namely the orangeries at Gl. Estrup (an old, beautiful manor house, which also works as a farming museum). The pictures are mainly from the baroque garden outside the orangeries. It is so beautiful and filled with blue agapanthus. I couldn't wish for a more stunning setting for our party.

Så er vi endelig flyttet, og pyh, sikke en omgang. Det er altså lige dét hårdere at flytte, når man har en baby at passe også. Men nu er vi så småt ved at komme på plads, og jeg tror, vi bliver rigtig glade for at bo her :-)

Med flytning synes jeg altid, der følger en masse nye boligdrømme. Især når man får set sine møbler i nyt lys og opdager, hvor nusset ens sofa efterhånden er blevet. Og det der teaktræs-sofabord passer absolut ikke ind. Boligbudgettet tillader dog hverken udskiftning af det ene eller andet lige nu, men derfor har man vel altid lov til at drømme (stort), ikke sandt?  :-) 

We've finally moved, and phew, what a round. Everything just becomes a bit more exhausting with a baby on board. But we're slowly settling in and I think we will love living here - we already do :-)

When moving, I think that a lot of new interior wishes always seem to turn up. Especially, when you get to see your old furniture in a new light and discover just how worn your sofa is. And how misplaced your teak coffee table looks in a new setting However, there is no room for any replacements of sorts in our interior budget at the moment, but that shouldn't hold you back from dreaming (big), right? :-)

Som nybagt forælder får tid bare en helt ny betydning. Alting går pludseligt så hurtigt med lille Saxo, der slet ikke er så lille mere. Han har lige lært at krybe rundt, og det kræver jo en helt ny portion opmærksomhed. Han skulle jo nødig blive væk eller komme til skade i alt vores flytterod.

Da jeg ventede Saxo, kunne jeg ikke lade være med at klikke et par af Petra's fine baby-mokasiner hjem. Så stod de der i min vindueskarm, og mindede mig om, at der snart ville være en lille dreng i mit liv, der kunne fylde dem ud. Og nu er han her, og er allerede vokset ud af dem. Det er slet ikke til at forstå.

Udover sin webshop, har Petra netop åbnet butik i Stockholm. Jeg ville sådan ønske, jeg havde mulighed for at besøge den (og yndlingsbyen Stockholm), men i stedet kigger jeg i beundring på de smukke billeder, hun lægger op derfra på sine Insta-profiler, @mimimockspetra og @mini.mocks. Det er sådant et fint og æstetisk univers, hun har skabt - og perfekt inspiration til det der kommende børneværelse. 

Held og lykke med din lille butik, Petra, og tusind tak for lån af billeder. 

Becoming a parent, time just gets a whole new meaning. All of a sudden, baby Saxo is evolving so fast. He has just learned to crawl around, which obviously means that a whole new level of attention is required. He shouldn't get lost or hurt himself in our moving mess.   

When I was expecting Saxo, I couldn't help myself buying a pair of Petra's cute mini mocks. Every day, they reminded me that a little boy soon would be in my life, able to fill out those tiny shoes. And now he is here, and has outgrown them already. It is so hard to grasp. 

In addition to her web shop, Petra has just opened her own concept store in Stockholm. Oh, how I wish I could visit it (and favourite city Stockholm), in stead I am looking in admiration at the beautiful pictures Petra is posting on her Instagram profiles, @minimockspetra and @mini.mocksShe has created such a stunning and aesthetic universe - perfect inspiration for that coming room for Saxo. 

Good luck to you and your little shop, Petra, and thank you for letting me use your pictures.

Our Old Apartment in Bolig Magasinet

Sidste år var vores gamle lejlighed i Aalborg i Bolig Magasinet, så jeg synes også lige, det er på sin plads at dele lidt af billederne her. For hvor er det altså sjovt at gense vores gamle hjem - særligt nu hvor vi står over for en ny flytning og vi kan finde flere af møblerne frem fra opbevaringen, som der ikke har været plads til i vores nuværende lejlighed. Billederne blev taget helt tilbage i december 2014, og hold op hvor er der altså også sket meget siden da. Både med Mads og jeg som personer og familie, men også stilmæssigt for mit vedkommende. Jeg er blevet væsentligt gladere for farver nu - fine, afdæmpede farver, men alligevel :D

I kan se flere billeder og læse artiklen her

Last year, our old apartment in Aalborg was in the Danish interior magazine, Bolig Magasinet - so I thought it was in its place to share the pictures here as well. It is so funny to re-visit our old home through these images - and particularly now, when we are about to move once again. The pictures were taken back in December 2014, and oh boy, so much has happened since then. Both in terms of Mads and I personally and as a family, but also in terms of my interior style. I have become much more fond of colours now - nice muted colours, but still :D

You'll find more pictures and the article (in Danish) here.
