Svenska flaggans dag – June 6

Swedes are fun loving people and it’s no secret that they look for any opportunity to celebrate. The summer is a particularly busy season with the arrival of midsummer, the onset of the crayfish season and momentous National Day parties.

HIPP HIPP HURRA! It is Swedish National Day today!

Did you know: Sweden didn’t officially celebrate their first National Day until June 6, 1983.

On that very same day a Swedish National Costume was introduced by Queen Silvia. Although the costume was in existence since the 1900s, it was not accepted as a National Costume until this day.

Every little girl needs an outfit to celebrate all these special occasions and at KIDSEN is this adorable one piece traditional costume made from 100% soft cotton.

It’s called ‘Sverige Klänningen’ (The Swedish Dress) and it’s designed in the Swedish national colours: Yellow and Blue. This super cute one piece dress comes with collar, ruched sleeves and a sewn on apron, to make it
practical for kids to play and dance in. Perfect for joining in the celebrations!

Available in sizes 1 – 6 years at £34.99.
Visit Kidsen.co.uk to find out more.

If you feel like celebrating you should try out a recipe on a “smörgåstårta” (sandwich cake), like this one here. Best of luck and enjoy the day!
