Happy Midsummer!

Happy Midsummer Weekend! I usually try to celebrate no matter where I am. One year some friends and I went to a local celebration put on by Portland’s Scandinavian heritage association. Above, I decorated a cake inspired by the strawberry cakes I saw in Sweden for midsummer.

I’ll be traveling this weekend to see family so I probably won’t be doing a big celebration this year. These photos are from a few years ago when I went to the festivities at Skansen in Stockholm (more pics here too!).

Another favorite was here at home in the Columbia River Gorge, celebrating at Wildcraft with friends. What will you be doing this weekend?

  1. You’re lucky, you had great weather for mid sommar in Skansen. I was in Skansen yesterday, it rained all day and the place was wet and muddy. Everyone had a rain coat on. I’m in Stockholm right now. I was in Sandamn today, a little island, really nice. I’m going to Vasamuseet tomorrow and Rosendahl’s garden. The train station in Stockholm is insane but I managed. Thanks Chelsea for all your info, I used some of them.
