Spring cafe decor

Just a quick little post to feature some pictures I recently took on the sly. I find that Tischdeko (table decoration) is really an art here in Germany -at least far more than in the US. For example, check out how one of our favorite cafe's all dolled up for spring:

How sweet is that? Ok, so the fresh flowers on the table and windowsills are nothing majorly earth-shattering, but the little ribbon around the vase is a nice touch. I could do that at home, too. I don't even know what you would call those arrangements by the doorway, but I'm liking them as well -but not for the home, ha ha! I like how they surround you and greet you as you come and go and think it's a lovely touch in a shop.

This weekend I'll be checking out a local painted Easter egg market again and trying to get our balcony ready for the warmer weather. What are you doing this weekend?

What a nice blog, I love it! I am an expat living in Frankfurt and strugling with the culture and the language. I like your explanations of small but absolutley traditional German things like table decoration and giving poted flowers as gifts. Also I've learned a few new words, so thank you!!! I better put the kettle on and have a look around!
P.S. I can't believe I missed the International Fair in Coolgne, oh shame

There's really nothing better than plants and fresh cut flowers this time of year! We could learn a thing or two from the Germans :)
