A Vintage Christmas Table Setting in a Swedish Greenhouse

A Vintage Christmas Table Setting in a Swedish Greenhouse


In a time when socialising outdoors in winter has become a thing – there’s one particular piece of garden equipment that has exploded in Scandinavia: the greenhouse! Not only are they great for plants (I could really use one for my lemon tree, it’s taking over our bedroom like something out of Little Shop of Horrors!), they’ve become a perfect hybrid setting for indoor / outdoor gatherings! And in wintertime they really come into their own! Just look at this wonderful vintage Christmas setting in Marlene Agemo’s garden in Märsta – on a farm just outside Stockholm. The greenhouse is festooned with Christmas cheer with pretty paper flowers (DIY instructions here) hung from string lights, vibrant red touches and an au natural tree. Layers of textiles, candles, and a heater help to keep everyone snug and full of festive cheer while the chickens roam free outside. 

What a beautiful setting! 

Could you imagine enjoying a Swedish Christmas fika here? 

You might like to check out Marlene’s shop Fru Vintage for ceramics, textiles, clothes and coffee (in Swedish). 

If you have elderly relatives (or others who simply feel more relaxed socialising outside) visiting over the holidays here are a few other ideas: 

I’m actually off to the woods in a minute to go and find a few pretty bits on the forest floor for our home this Christmas (trust me, I’m way behind!). The sun’s shining and my thermos is full! 

Wishing you all a lovely day!
