The Grand Salon at Lalande
Rapeseed flowers and lilac
Happy Easter from Lalande
It´s looking so warm and bloomy in the chateau now, decorations are coming along. The house is almost full, and the last guests will arrive tonight. I love having lots of people around the chateau, it´s a lovely feeling. Since we have a Superhero theme party this year, everyone has to come as a superhero or a supervillain tonight. We also started a game last night, i think it´s similar to “Vampires and Villagers”. It´s a game about staying alive (i think..), and so far I haven´t been killed. Haha! I´ll keep you all updated.
Here are a few pictures of the house right now:
We wanted the Grand Salon to look like a magical galaxy where only superheroes live. The Winter Salon will be the dark planet who are hosting all the supervillains. Stephanie ordered a lot of wisteria from Amazon, and they are now hanging in the beams in the Grand Salon. I usually have no great interest in using fake flowers (being a florist), but these do look pretty amazing. I can´t wait for the big party tonight.
The entrance hall
I made a few flower arrangments yesterday, and I just love the colour palettes. Bluebells, lilac and greens. I found a lot of empty glass bottles and old jars lying around. After washing them and filling them with cold water, they were ready to be used. I love re-using stuff. It´s so heavenly to have such a big collection of vases in the house. Thank you, Stephanie!
A cup of tea and loud music while making the arrangments is essential
The two big tables are now covered with white linen tablecloths, and it´s almost looking a bit summerly in the entrance hall. Tonight we will have a 3-course meal served by Dana and Jodi. I´m so excited, especially about the chocolate dipped strawberries we´re having for dessert. Yummy!
