With Easter just around the corner it is no surprise that eggs have sneaked into this weeks ideas and inspirations and today is no exception. Not wanting to comprise on the colour palette and cool Scandinavian style they are of course blue!
Also included in today’s Friday Favourites is a traditional Danish cake ~ a Kransakake, ringed layer upon ringed layer of almond cake drizzled with icing. Traditionally for a wedding it should have at least 18 rings. I rather like the idea that they sometimes place a bottle of champagne in the base and the rings diminish around it. Another tradition is that the happy couple take the very top ring and the number of rings which stay attached to it indicate how many children the couple may have. I love a bit of wedding superstition
Today’s board plays still with the same muted pale tones I’ve been sharing all week but with elements that bring texture and interest. Enjoy!

Oh and if you do fancy your hand at making a Kransakake you can buy the cake pans to create equal sized rings from Lakeland, you get six non stick pans which are reduced to just £4.99!! But you need to hurry once they are sold they are not restocking!
After I finished collecting these Friday Favourites I came across another lovely image that I wanted to share. I started with eggs so I guess it’s appropriate I close the week with the same ~ these are faux quails eggs and would be lovely as table decor, available on line from Bird in Hand Vintage
I’ve had some lovely feedback on this week’s blog posts from readers, telling me how calm and fresh they have found this week’s inspirations. I think that’s what I love most about this style it has a really good vibe about it and just feels very peaceful, pretty without being fussy, cool without being cold. Please feel free to share your feelings about this style, is it one that appeals to you?
Remember also I am always open to ideas if you would like me to put together a moodboard for a particular theme, colours or ideas you might have then just let me know either through the comments below or via email, look forward to hearing from you
