Today I am sharing a simple Nordic Christmas decoration with you. We’ve officially entered the second half of November, so it’s time to kick off the Christmas season here on the blog. Who’s excited? Not to scare you, but Christmas is merely six (!) weeks away.
You might remember, that I talked about a big Christmas project I was working on for a client last month? Today I am happy to share the first out of three Christmas stylings I did for Rosendahl with the Karen Blixen Christmas collection.
Rosendahl asked me to interpret their Karen Blixen Christmas collection through three different stylings along with two other bloggers; Allan of Bungalow5 and Malene of Boligcious. Vote for your favourite Christmas decoration by Friday on Rosendahl’s website and have a chance to win Karen Blixen decorations for the amount of DKK 1000.
In the following weeks I will also share my stylings of a Christmas table and a Christmas tree. I hope you find them inspirational and I promise to do my best to bring you lots of Christmas inspiration in the coming weeks – stay tuned!
The holiday season is very special to me and as I’ve shared before I love all things related to December and Christmas, so this was such a fun project to work on. Even in October! The Christmas spirit is slowly getting hold of me – in fact I am listening to my Christmas play list right now as I write this (don’t tell).
In Denmark we use calendar candles to count down from December 1st until Christmas Eve on December 24th, which is the day we celebrate Christmas. I wrote a post about the calendar candle tradition last year and shared some of my favourite calendar candles on the market (the links have been updated to the 2015 versions).
Make your own Nordic Christmas decoration
I went for a simple, Nordic look to emphasise the beautiful silver Karen Blixen ornaments. I used fresh moss, a few eucalyptus branches, a few Thuja branches, a piece of old wood I found in the woods and a few delicate pink flowers. The calendar candle is by Broste Copenhagen, the dish is called Design With Light by Holmegaard and I picked out a few favourite Karen Blixen silver ornaments – check out the whole series here.
