Every summer we have a party for everyone in the neighbourhood.
Like a street party.
We didn't have any budget for flowers, but a party without flowers is not a party.
So I made some easy table arrangements with wild flowers.

We don't have any village hall or foot ball ground on the island.
My father and my uncle use to set up 2 long tables in their big workshop for the summer party.

Along the beach I found Queen Anne's lace, reed and sea kale.
I used jam jars in different sizes and placed them in gruops of three.
Reeds in one, Queen Anne's lace in one and sea kale in one.

Since we're on a small little island on the west cost of Sweden.
And the islanders are of of all ages and tastes, I decide to keep it simple
and go for maritime flowers.
And quite neutral colours (I didn't choose the napkins!)
