Happy May Day, everybody! May Day - or Vappu, as we call it - brings forth plenty of celebrations here in Finland. My day was spent among good friends. Here's what we did today ~
Unfortunately it rained and the weather was nasty and cold so plans of an outdoors picnic sadly had to be scrapped.
We met up with some friends and drove to Pyynikin näkötorni, a deco tower circa 1929 that stands on top of Pyynikki, between two lakes. It is a really gorgeous spot and the views are absolutely stunning!
Munkkia ja simaa! We enjoyed some traditional Vappu treats at the cafe. People say the donuts are the best in Tampere. Yum!
Headed to our friends' place for an indoors picnic. Fresh, home-made buns and donuts! Double yummy!
A May Day feast with lentil salad, tea, mead, chips and tippaleipä.
Playtime with the very adorable cat.
I wore one of my favorite vintage hats. It is from the 1950s and I got it via Etsy.
Another Etsy find, a wrap dress from the 1940s... I just adore this dress! And some crazy balloons, of course!
Hope you all had a nice May Day and hopefully much nicer weather than we did.
