Entertaining this December? I discovered this beautiful Scandinavian Christmas table setting earlier and had to share it with you in case you’re looking for inspiration! Created by Emelie Sundberg and Emma Johansson for LINUM, it features everything I love: layers of textiles, delicate cocktail glasses, pretty festive touches and of course, plenty of candlelight.
I love the slim candles (buy in bulk here*!), they look so pretty against the dark, earthy wall.
Edit: A note on the overhead candles: they’ve been installed using special candle holder clips which will keep them firmly in place and each candle has been placed firmly away from any branches or anything else flammable. Of course, to do something like this you’d need a really high ceiling and also exercise caution. Never leave candles unattended and always extinguish before leaving the room. But to avoid any doubt, these battery-powered candles would be a better option!
The use of ribbons add a soft, romantic touch to the setting. If I tied the plates up like this at home I can just see Per looking at it completely baffled!! But I for one, would appreciate it, and I think my girls would too! I also love how the berries add a delicate touch of colour.
I hope it has given you a few ideas for your table this December.
