Mothering Sunday

On the 8th of May it will be mothering Sunday in Belgium and The Netherlands. It’s all a bit confusing to me why they don’t turn this day into a world wide fixed event on a set date. Ah well I’m not the world lord – although I really wish to be sometimes.

The weather forecast predicts a really lovely and sunny weekend, which brings me back to a shoot a did two years ago for a magazine with my friends in my kitchen garden.

I did the styling and photography and my friend, Sofie, pretended to be the host of a fake garden party for our friends. We had such a blast. I wrapped a bunch of Trivial Pursuit boxes (which make the prefect fake presents) with leftover bits of wallpaper. I also made bunting from paper cake doilies and hung them all around the garden. There were raspberry cocktails and cucumber sandwiches and there was tons of laughter.
