I’ve been collaborating with the lovely people over at Also Home this week, putting together some ideas for a Scandinavian Christmas table.
I’ve purposely kept the table really simple and pared back, taking in the most popular elements of a scandi style, which has been quite hard for me, particularly when I like a good pop of colour. But for this I want to show you that sometimes, less is more.
There are some amazing blogs around that showcase this look perfectly, in particular I love Hannah in the House, so do check it out if this kind of thing is for you. I can’t recreate this look perfectly, but this is my take on a luscious Scandinavian table. Perhaps this is something you might like to recreate. Using the beautiful crockery from Also Home I’ve added a few golden twinkling lights, a grey tablecloth and vase, plus the contrast of Eucalyptus stems. And that’s it. It’s all about keeping things uncluttered and simple, allowing the beauty of your homewares to shine.
I love these little tealight holder which I picked up at the weekend for an absolute bargain price, and I know I’m going to be using them A LOT this Christmas. I love their straightforward styling and effective Christmas look, which works so well with a Scandinavian table.
I’ve never been great at mixing and matching but it’s something I wanted to get better at, so in the last year I’ve experimented in lots of different ways. It takes a bit of practice to get right but the Also Home website has done a lot of the hard work for you when it comes to mixing and matching your tableware. Check out these complimentary patterns which are so easy to put together. Doesn’t this look work so well?
Scandi styling is all about a few key pieces and lots of white space. Don’t overload your table. Choose pieces that work in muted tones of blues, greys and whites for an authentic look.
Trays are particularly useful for breakfast in bed, but they can also be used on a table as a centrepiece. They contain the items and create a focal point whilst still maintaining that uncluttered look.
These bowls are much bigger than I anticipated but make great serving bowls either for hot food or side dishes. Perfect too for snacks at a party or Christmas gathering.
Desserts, coffee and family or friends makes the perfect ending to a wonderful Christmas, Scandi style. Simple, stylish and beautifully curated.
Let the twinkling lights do the talking.
