A refreshing summer climate at Home!
Partying in your home means a lot of fun, but it requires some preparation. How do you cope with the available space? How do you create the right atmosphere? Here are some ideas:
When you are planning a private party, it is advisable that you think about what you have to purchase and how you have to reorganise your rooms to comfort your guests.
Entering your new home or wanting to change the looks of it without spending too much? Maybe a new wall decoration can do wonders. Here are some ideas:
A glicée print is a printed copy of an original artwork that generally is signed, has the same looks as the original, but is a lot cheaper. The print quality is good, the colours are stable to light and the finishing is to standard.
Certainly, a bedroom’s first task is to provide a cosy atmosphere to enjoy a comfortable sleep. Correct lighting and sufficient storage capabilities are others...

Garden Grass Canarias – Garden Projects from Breaking ground till Party-ready.
Garden Grass Canarias is a well-established garden specialist in Corralejo. Their focus is to supply a trouble-free project management and execution for the Corralejo & Castillo area, whether it is a small job or a larger one.
Artificial Grass – benefits for you and for Fuerteventura.
When you drive along urban roads and see how much effort is being done to create green islands of natural grass and keep them in good shape, you may wonder why humans always want to fight the elements instead of keeping them as your friend. How much water, energy and manpower is being spent, just to keep this kind of nice environment? Is there not a valid alternative for this climate? Yes, there is, and not only for public areas.
Happy Plants Garden Centre in Tefia, Fuerteventura has a lot of plants to offer, whether it is for your garden or for inside your home. They also supply you with a lot of advice when commissioning your new garden or plan an extention of your existing one.
How to turn your wasteland into a pleasure zone...
A private person in Fuerteventura asked Garden Grass Canarias to turn 200sqm of his unused land into a putting green. As there was no construction involved, no planning permission was needed, nor an architect. In a time span of a couple of weeks, the land was flattened, prepared for the high-quality artificial grass and all components were put in place.
Living outside has become a separate culture that thrives on its own. As a result to that, outdoor furniture has shown a revolution – in style, in materials, in colours and in applications. Today total furnishing for outdoor living has become the newest trend.
Almost everyone who lives on the island knows about Happy Plants and their beautiful plants, trees and cacti that are being taken care of with love and dedication.
But… Happy Plants recently became a nursery to many plants as Saskia is growing her own generation now.
Most of us who have a garden have flowers, cacti, ornamental trees …and maybe even palms. But what about using your garden not only as a place to relax, but also as a fountain of health? Have you ever thought about growing your own vegetables? The climate is good enough to harvest even more than once a year. Imagine making crispy salads with plants grown in your own plot of land.

How "waste" becomes something "fine".
From the "waste" that some hobby cooks and everyday cooks produce during the preparation of food, one could easily conjure up entire menus. Apparently, thriftiness has so far avoided the kitchen. Quite apart from the fact that wastefulness of food is simply out in times of "organic" and sustainability.
Philippe Laurent, business owner at La Folie des Délices in Corralejo, presents his new creation: the Macaron Gofio, a meringue shell with Gofio and filled with Gofio and Truffe de Lait (Milk Truffle). Philippe builds on 3 generations of pastry making which has resulted in this new member of the Macaron Parisien, two shells that are combined with any kind of tasty filling. The key to a maximum culinary experience is quality of the products, know-how and freshness.
