Fantas-tisch Blog

May 9, 2014

I found a new blog to love this week called Fantas-tisch. It’s in German so for those of you who cannot read it I have good news – you can still drool over the lovely photos and recipes. Fantas-tisch is a word play which is why it’s hyphenated. “Fantastisch” meaning fantastic and “Tisch” which means table. The blog is about food and table settings, parties, etc. so Fantas-tisch is quite a sweet and fun name for it I think! Here are some of my favorite posts from this gorgeous blog written by Anke.

How did I find this gorgeous blog? She reviewed our Decorate With Flowers book (in German it is called Wohnen mit Blumen) and I noticed a few click throughs! In fact, the flowers shown above floating in the white bowl were inspired by the cover of our book! I loved seeing that – it made my day (thank you Anke!).

Have a nice weekend everyone – see you next week!

    I am following Anke’s blog since a longer time, and can’t wait to see more of her inspiring table decoration. It is a kind of joyful excitement when I click to her blog and see new pictures…. She has a knack for wonderful color assortment.

    sweet words!

    Totally inspired – beautiful photos.
    On a different note Holly do you know the date you are going to be in London? I am really keen to pop along but need to organise child care in advance.

      @Cathy – I’ll definitely be there speaking at DesignJunction during London Design Week on September 18. I’m not sure though when the party for the book will be yet, but I think the day before or after. When I know I will blog it asap!

    Wow, such beautiful photos from Fantas-tisch! It looks like a very inspiring blog, I’ll have to follow it! Could be a fun way to improve my German, too.
