Simple Rose Beauty for your Midsummer Party

To use kitchen utensils for flower arranging is simple, fun and easy. Just to let your fantasy lead the way.
By Susanna Westien

In late June we celebrate Midsummer in Sweden.  This celebration involves a lot of tradition, for example:  eating raw herring with Swedish fresh potatoes, drinking snaps, singing snaps songs, having Swedish strawberries with cream for dessert, dancing quirky round a midsummer pole and picking 7 different kinds of flowers to put under your pillow. The saying says this will make you dream of your future husband or wife. For a foreigner it might be kind of exotic.  For us Swedes it is the real beginning of a flourishing summer.

On Midsummer Eve I pick wild flowers on my favorite flower meadow.  I pick a whole bunch so it will be enough for both pillow flowers and summer arrangements for the table. I like to be playful with bought cut flowers, wild flowers from nature and meadow and “tame” flowers from the garden.  It’s a perfect match and the result will be gorgeous.

To use kitchen stuff for flower arranging is simple, fun and easy. You can probably use everything in your kitchen cupboards.  Don`t be afraid to use different and surprising containers for your flowers.  Just to let your fantasy lead the way.  For this Midsummer arrangement I used heart shaped baking pans.  I filled the pans with oasis. Then I arranged the several different bought cut roses with peonies and lady´s mantle from the garden, blueberries from the forest and oxeye daisies from the meadow. It became a lovely summer mix.  I love summer and soon my roses in the garden will bloom.

A little Midsummer dictionary:

Midsummer Pole is a pole formed like a cross decorated with birch and flowers. On each end of the cross there are wreaths of flowers hanging.

A snaps is strong spiced liquor and before you drink this you always sing a short song. Ending with a Skål! (Cheers)
