Food: Fika with the inlaws

This morning, I found out Tom’s parents were coming over to help with the floor in the living space (building site), so I got out the teapot, percolator and the necessary cake for a little Fika.

So, out came the Marimekko teapot, Mid century Iittala Solaris crystal plates by Tapio Wirkkala, Alessi forks and my vintage Hornsea creamer.

We had some Valencian orange and almond cake, leftover from my Spanish dinner party, yesterday,

– homemade Spanish Amarguillos served in my Georg Jensen leaf dish

– representing Italy were Amaretti di Saronno in a vintage Deka ‘Cathrineholm style’ lotus bowl

– representing Denmark were some Romkugler in an Iittala Aalto dish

And…

– representing good ‘ol Blighty were some custard creams in a Marimekko/Iittala Maribowl.

Even though it was last minute, thankfully they enjoyed. Tom’s mam even praised the Little My Moomin Arabia Finland mug 😉 – these days she even can recognise Marimekko 🙂
