Summer is here, and there's no better way to celebrate than with Scandinavian-inspired midsummer decorations. Take inspiration from the history of the summer festival and add a few contemporary ingredients for the perfect summer of love: think flowers, plants, and tasty food and drink.
Celebrate with the midsummer pole
In Sweden the midsummer pole takes central stage at summer festivities. The tree is decorated with jasmine, juniper, ivy, daisies and seasonal flowers, making a beautiful centrepiece. To pay homage to the tradition, make your own midsummer pole: a focal point for a low-key summer garden party.
Snacks and cocktails
Decorate your garden table with plants and flowers to celebrate midsummer. Snack on grilled bream, smörrebröd, and a tart with berries. To quench your thirst, sip on a delicious midsummer cooler or hibiscus iced tea. There’s plenty of time to eat, drink and be merry, as it's the longest day of the year.
Good fortune in love
Midsummer is a day to can sit with grass under your feet and a floral crown in your sun-warmed hair. Make a garland filled with meaning, that will bring you happiness in the long, lazy days of summer that are heading your way.
Midsummer celebrations for your interior
If the weather lets you down, move your summer celebration indoors. Decorate your house with plants for good luck, including for example this botanical wreath. Summer is a wonderful season, and we plan on enjoying it to the fullest, whatever the weather outside.
