Pipo’s KG teacher is getting married next weekend and I came up with the idea to prepare a special gift for her. Basket full of sunny flowers with the children’s happy faces. It was so much fun preparing it. I’ve asked another teacher to help out with the cardboard flowers, and it was the kids actually doing them. After I’d taken photos of the group, I printed them on a cardboard and glued them on the flowers. The basket is filled with a sponge and moss on top. Easy and so much better than just a bouquet of fresh flowers, in this case. I hope she is going to love the idea and the effort, as the children we really excited and secretive about it in front of her 🙂 It can be a perfect end of school gift or a farewell one as well.

The above poster is my definition of summer and it reminds me of my favorite chill out song by Arnica Montana. Feel free to download the poster if you like it. Below a few ideas that I’m currently working on, decorating with ropes. Perfect summer detail.

All images found on Pinterest, poster designed by me. More inspirations in my summer dinning board here.
