every day counts - book review

photos from the book fest hver dag

a little while back, i mentioned a new book from IKEA, a book about inspiring table settings and recipes, and now i am so happy to have received the book, called fest hver dag (every day counts) to do a book review for you!

i was really excited about this book, after seeing some of the photos from it here. and guess what? the book is even better than i expected. it is filled with the most inspiring table settings, in different colours, themes and for different seasons. the first part has a chapter for every day of the week, and the last part contains a collection of yummy recipes presented in the first part. 

the first and largest part of the book is printed on matte paper, which suites the photos very nicely, i just love that matte feeling. it presents several decorating ideas for easter, a tea party, weddings, picnic, christmas etc and some creative recipes to go along with it. the second part of the book is filled with delicious recipes, printed on glossier paper, -for sticky fingers, yeay!

i believe this is a book everyone can enjoy, because of the mixture of styles. some of the decorating ideas are simple black and white, some colorful and retro, others white and woody, playful, -and soft pastel pink.

i personally think the price is very reasonable and it makes a perfect gift as well. 
bonus: along with the book you get a collection of sweet postcards with images from the book.

you can read more about the book (in norwegian) here
the book can be purchased at your local IKEA store now.
