Scandinavian Christmas

Christmas Angel

Christmas Angel from Jo Heckett

Snow covered roof tops, mulled wine, roaring fires and twinkling fairy lights; everything the festive season should be, and no one does Christmas quite like the Scandinavians. So opt for the warm and traditional approach this year and take some inspiration from the home of St Nick himself.

There’s nothing more exciting than the run up to Christmas so The Contemporary Home have given us the beautiful Nordic Felt Bird Advent Calender, £19.99, to help you count down the days in style. And once you’re off, get your centre piece in place with the Nativity Set, £49.99, also from The Contemporary Home.

So now it’s time to deck the halls and why not start with that all important tree? The immensely popular red and white theme for Christmas is prevalent in most Nordic decorations so the Santas Toy Box Tree Decorations, £15.00, from Fairwind and the Angel Christmas Decoration, £9.00, from Jo Heckett should work well in most festive homes.

There is something almost magical about the Scandinavian style that captures the imagination and feels homely and familiar. The Handmade Vintage Mice With Brolly, £8.75, from Berry Red and the Wooden Reindeer, £3.00, from Tesco Christmas represent this perfectly and appeal to kids and big kids alike.

One thing you mustn’t forget this year is to hang out your stocking, and with the Tree Stocking, £20, from Cushlab you can be assured that Santa won’t miss yours! Now with the abundance of candles bedecking your dwelling you’ll need something handy to put them out with: the Santa Candle Snuffer £5.00 from BREEZE is both a helpful little device and also fits right in with all your other decorations.

Then top it all off with the Red Star Tree Topper from ASDA and you’re free to keep dreaming of a white Christmas.
