Get That Holiday Feeling!
If you’re planning on giving someone money for a trip or holiday but don’t want to put it in the obligatory envelope, Liska from dekotopia.net has just the right idea for you!
The banknotes are packed behind the glass as a landscape and the mini models add the finishing touches. This gift of money becomes an eyecatcher to remind you that you’ll be off on holiday sometime soon. And when the holiday is over and the money has been spent, you can put one of your holiday snaps in the frame as a souvenir.
Miniature Gugl Wonderland
Winter decorations for your coffee table. Do you know Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg? That insanely great modelling landscape with over 400,000 tiny little people, animals, trees, houses, lights and much more? You wander through the different worlds open-mouthed and can’t stop being amazed and impressed. Madness! Today, we have an idea for your own little miniature wonderland on a wintery coffee table: a miniature wonderland made of Gugl doughnut cakes. Your guests are guaranteed to be amazed. If you’re searching for the right coffee to match, we recommend having a look at Hensler, a coffee roaster from Wangen. They have a great Christmas coffee!

Make table decorations for the first day of school. Who doesn't remember their first day at school?

Definitely: having coffee with the whole family in the afternoon!

"Ihr Kinderlein kommet"
As this German Christmas carol describes, Christmas always holds a bit of the magic of childhood! The anticipation of unwrapping our presents when we were children carries over, and over the years, we look forward to being able to give others something nice for Christmas. Children’s eyes lighting up at the sight of gifts of toys in particular rekindles this feeling in us... And since a wooden railway is probably one of the most classic toys ever and you can never keep the kids quiet at the Christmas table before the presents are distributed, Julia from Mammilade has come up with this really great decoration for the Christmas table which will delight children and adults, young and old alike!
Happy New Year!
Design New Year's Eve lucky charms as pendants for champagne bottles. Every year the same questions arise: Where should you celebrate New Year's Eve? With whom? And: What should you bring as a small gift to the party? At least for the last question we have a great idea! Liska from Dekotopia shows how to make a great little lucky charm to decorate a champagne bottle. Because champagne is always good on New Year's Eve ;)
