Midsummer Picnic

 

It's midsummer. Now are the longest days of the year and there is nothing better than being outside. The large garden of Hazelnut House is slowly showing off its summer splendour. Sweet dark fruits hang from the large cherry tree and the raised beds are filled with herbs, edible flowers and delicious salads. White linen blankets flutter on the clothesline, waiting to be laid on the garden tables. Summer is in the air and we cordially invite you! Come, we're having a party!

 

 

We want to prepare everything together. The last ingredients are harvested quickly and then everything is ready in the large kitchen of the house to cook all the delicious midsummer dishes: baked salmon with lemon crust and fresh fennel, dill potatoes and pickled herring fillets, summer salads with fresh pea pods, small homemade Köttbullar, creamy spring cream for the crispbread and as a dessert fluffy cinnamon biscuits, strawberries and elderberry ice cream. Simply heavenly...

On the terrace there are large vases filled with wonderful summer flowers and delicate grasses. For our midsummer festival we bind together the most beautiful wreaths of flowers in all the colours of summer. Everyone gets his own wreath! And so lovingly bound each one becomes a small work of art.

 

The garden of Hazelnut House is decorated with arrangements of birch branches and brightly coloured ribbons that dance wonderfully in the wind. And of course there is music! For the children a very special place with wonderful games is waiting to be discovered. 

At many tables and on cozy picnic blankets everyone comes together in large groups. Together we enjoy the delicious food and refresh ourselves with a cold glass of wine or sparkling lemonade. Sugar-sweet strawberries disappear into laughing children's mouths. On the heads of the guests, who are dressed in white, the self-made wreaths of meadow flowers shine in competition.

When the evening comes, the lanterns in the fruit trees gradually light up. A fresh midsummer wind carries the first cricket chirping of the year. Happy laughter, singing and dancing delight the hearts and our midsummer picnic. The children gather around the campfire and bake small breads on long hazelnut rods until the first satisfied yawn appears. Like precious treasures, the flower wreaths are then lifted from the heads and carried home as a memento of this special day.
