Armi Ratia, the founder of
Marimekko, was renowned – among other things – for the fabulous parties at her
villa. Inspired by Armi's impeccable style, the Finnish Musla bloggers Enni
Koistinen, Kirsikka Simberg and Mia Frilander organized a picnic party at
Kirsikka's summer cottage.
Discover Musla's laid-back take
on a garden party, with dresses from Marimekko's spring/summer 2019 collection and
home décor items carrying Fujiwo Ishimoto's Onni (happiness) pattern and Maija
Louekari's new Eläköön elämä (long live life) print.
"In case you don't have a garden of your own, whimsical
floral prints are a brilliant way to bring an abundant feel to balconies, courtyards
and festive table settings. When it comes to party attire, we chose dresses
from Marimekko's spring/summer collection, charmed by the liberating pieces
that are perfect for hanging around, enjoying the party, and dancing." – Musla
Musla's tip for the host
A relaxed host is the best
host. You don't have to have everything ready by the time your guests arrive. It's
a good idea to have a little something to do also for the guests.
Musla's tip for the guests
A practical – and edible – gift
is a thoughtful gesture. A bottle of a home-made smoothie found from the fridge
in the morning would be a delight for the host.
