Inspired by: The Scandinavian Christmas Theme from Ferm Living

The weekend after Thanksgiving is always a busy one around my house. It's the time to bring back all of those boxes that have been saved in the basement for a whole year, holding dozens of little things, and waiting for December to get back on stage.

Ornaments, school crafts, garlands, lights, old family decorations, this is the time to get them all out and enjoy a great day with my girls. I love to see the surprise in their faces each time we open a box and find something that we had completely forgotten about. Of course, every ornament they've made since they were in pre-k deserves a story, and many others decorations we have collected over the years, also get a story.

At the end of Saturday, we always realize that we have talked and laughed too much, but are not nearly done... and that is how decorating for Christmas, becomes a weekend affair. On Sunday, when we think that we are finished, I always find an empty spot on the tree that will force me to do a little shopping, so we can complete our Christmas adventure.

This year, I have my eyes on black and white decorations. Have you shopped around and realized how trendy these two colors are this year? Organic materials and raw elements like natural cotton, wool, clay and wood are definitely a theme, and I'm just fascinated with this collection from Danish design studio Ferm Living- paper and wooden stars, plywood balls, fabric calendars,  stockings, felt garlands and mini trees... All so simple, modern, beautiful!! 

Take a look!! Ferm Living Christmas Collection available here.
