Straw Festival – Strohfest

Today I am sharing with you a straw festival! A what? Yes, a festival of straw! The festival is held in Germany every year at my favorite “little” palace… Schloss Ludwigsburg.  This festival was  actually held this Spring, but for some reason I feel like it seems more fitting for Fall for some reason… maybe it’s because we decorate with hay bales around here for Fall?  The pictures were taken by my parents on their vacation… I am “borrowing” them πŸ˜‰   

As you can see, all of the sculptures are made from straw!

I totally love the carrots and onions, aren’t they cute??

Of course, the snail is cute. Don’t mind the cherry blossoms, pink is okay for Fall too, right?? 

I hope you enjoyed the straw festival (Strohfest in German).  Schloss Ludwigsburg is seriously the best little palace over there… every Spring it hosts the straw festival and every Fall it hosts the pumpkin festival. If you’re ever in Germany… go there! So much fun!

    Angelina, I agree with you – these are fitting for Fall. What a fantastical display. I bet those took a lot of man hours to create. Thanks for sharing (visiting from your feature at Marty's blog).
