Nordic Holiday Table Inspiration
December 24, 2015
Times a ticking loves and Christmas is literally at our doorstep. If you're anything like me, you have yet to solidify your mighty Holiday tablescape but maybe this Nordic inspired number from Charmed Events Group + Gladys Jem will get the creative Christmas juices flowing. It also works wonders for a little get together any time this winter. Because in terms of decor, fur and copper are always a good idea.

We are full swing into the holiday season and this time of year always calls for entertaining and more entertaining! I had the great privilege of traveling to Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden and Norway) over the summer and was so inspired by the design aesthetic that they had...and the fact that they love the Christmas Holiday! Scandinavian design is all about natural elements, particularly wooden elements, presented in a clean and modern fashion, paired with whimsical detailing such as furs, handcrafted toys, etc.. I loved everything that I saw and absorbed in Scandinavia; I really wanted to create a table and holiday scape that I could share with people to peruse and be inspired by for the Holiday Season!

We created a modern Holiday tablescape, inspired by Scandinavia by pairing wooden elements with textures. One key element that I saw in Scandinavia was the use of furs so we draped sheepskin furs over each seat. We used wooden chargers for each place setting, layered with clear plates (for modernity) and accented each setting with a laser engraved wooden menu. To further add dimension and whimsy to each place setting, we hand painted deer toys in white to complement the setting along with etched glasses and copper mugs. The table was covered with garlands of eucalyptus and white peony blooms and accented with high tapered candles to create a Winter Wonderland feel.

We also created a festive beverage station that had egg nog and hot chocolate, encouraging guests to "get festive" by choosing a beverage of choice! We accented the setting with snowglobes (because they never go out of style) and simple parcel presents tied with festive striped ribbon.
