Oh, how I simply love December. I love the decoration, buying gifts and the gift wrapping – well, I actually think I love that most of all. This year, I’m super busy, but I try to sneak in a bit of Christmas spirit here and there. Unfortunately, our trip to Hamburg didn’t bring out the Christmas spirit this year – not like it used to anyway. The Christmas markets were closed and were to open a few days after we left the city. Bad planning – that’s all I can say. So instead, I’ve found some really cute Christmas decorations – some I’ve already got, and some I would love to add to our home.
Today we celebrate the first day of advent, and if you’re not ready yet, might I suggest these cute candles from Södahl. This year I added the cool grey and white trees to my rather big selection of trees. I don’t know what it is about them, I just love the winter wonderland feeling about Christmas decorations. I simply love the x-mas led lamp – and would be so thrilled to add it to my Christmas collection. On a smaller scale, the black Christmas decoration would be in our living room, or on the Christmas tree. Last but not least, my absolute favorite new trend when it comes to Christmas decor. Don’t you just love Christmas balls in all shapes and sizes? Just do a quick search online and you’ll find the most amazing ones.
Are you ready for advent? In one week we’ll light the first candle and celebrate the first advent. I haven’t created this year’s advent wreath, but hopefully, I’ll get it done this weekend. I’ve been using one of my Kubus candleholder for the past couple of years, but I’m actually considering going more ‘natural’ this year. I’m very inspired by some of the pictures below. However, I also love using my son’s Schleich animals, to make it more playful.

The past 3 years we’ve had a candle from Normann Copenhagen to help us count down the days till Christmas. However, I’ve bought another candle holder for our candle this year.
First of all, I wanted a thinner candle. It was hard for us to burn the bigger candle down each day, so a thinner version is on trial this year. In mid October a candle holder from finnsdottir arrived at my door. I’d been trying to decide which one to pick for a few weeks, and I finally decided on the one with the tiny Bambi.
I’ve added a few new trees from Søstrene Grene to the decoration and I’m quite happy with the result. I’ll add a picture on Instagram, when reach the end of November. But until then, you can check out the Christmas campaign from Søstrene Grene – I bought the green and white trees. If you want even more Christmas inspiration, you should check out my board on Pinterest. But I’ll make sure to collect some of my favourite Christmas ideas in another post when we hit the end of November.
