Scandinavian Summer

MIDSUMMER BLOG PARTY! Let's celebrate Swedish tradition. Want to contribute? Email Oaxacaborn!

I’m running a little behind on this, but what do you think? Can we pull off a Midsummer [blog] party in time? I’m thinking something in the spirit of the Scandinavian Christmas series — but all Midsummer! If you have photos, blog posts from past summers, traditions, crafts, resources or anything else Midsummer-related to share, email me oaxacaborn @gmail.com. I can’t wait!

SCANDINAVIAN SUMMER :: Linnea’s Swedish Midsommar Celebration

Every winter, there’s a whole lotta Scandinavian and Nordic Christmas beauty on this blog. The Scandinavian Christmas series is one of my very favorite blog features — and, judging by the stats, it’s yours, too.

When lovely reader Linnea emailed me photos of her beautiful Swedish Midsommar celebration, I could hardly believe I never thought of having a Scandinavian Summer series as well!

While midsummer is already past, it’s not too late to celebrate, right? Not at all! I’ve just added a Scandinavian Summer category, so if you want to send me your summery photos, feel free! I might feature them. :)

Here’s how Linnea celebrated this year.
