Castle of Ooidonk Lifestyle & Garden Fair

Easter weekend seemed like the perfect occasion for me and my mum to pay a visit to the beautiful Castle of Ooidonk in the Flemish Deinze, where a lifestyle and garden fair was going on on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

It wasn't a very good day regarding the weather, though the sun peeped through the clouds now and then. There was a lot of wind, but I decided to throw on a hat nevertheless, along with my cosy and warm furry coat.

We strolled through the fair for a while and had a light lunch there too. I love the little stalls full of handicrafts, although I rarely ever buy something. We got our hands on a nice little sheepskin rug and some homemade eggnog, and a piece of extremely delicious - and expensive - cheese, which is a miracle because I usually hate cheese.

The Ooidonk Castle is a beautiful location for these kind of fairs. The castle itself has several little buildings and a big courtyard in between them. It's surrounded by an enormous set of gardens, though most of it is just a big spread landscape of grass. There's also a lot of water around the castle, so there are bridges everywhere and little islands on the lakes to spot ducks and other birds on. It was a bummer that it wasn't a beautiful day, because I think the gardens must be lovely to walk around in with a warming amount of Vitamin D shining on your face.

I enjoy being outside in a nature filled surrounding, but it's even better when it's linked to a cosy event full of handicraft and happy people. It's the perfect way for me to clear my head and a good start of a two week Easter holiday off from school.

Venue : Ooidonk Castle

What I'm wearing : Vero Moda coated trousers - Abercrombie & Fitch faux fur coat - S. Oliver ankle boots - H&M hat (last season, but likely one here)
