Christmas with Holmegaard

There is a reason for today's Christmassy post. It's an attempt to adjust to the fact that we are heading for December. This morning I looked at my day planner in disbelief when I realised that next Sunday marks the first in Advent. Can this really be?!! I'm so not ready for Christmas, not ready at all, and I have no idea in which box I will find my Christmas mood. All I know is that I will have to find that box in the garage and unpack it.

Maybe I just need to get a hold of some beautiful Holmegaard glassware to decorate our new home (a Christmas bottle from Holmegaard has been on my wish list for quite some time). I never go overboard with the Christmas décor; I like keeping it minimal and am not someone who keeps blinking lights in windows, etc. For me it's more about using certain glasses and plates than actually decorating. I have a few items that I use to decorate the Christmas table and then of course there is the tree and Advent wreath. That's pretty much it.

I'm sitting at a Starbucks right now, checking my emails (still no wi-fi at home). There is a decorated Christmas tree in one corner and I was thinking that maybe I should come here more often to get into the Christmas groove.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Time is passing too fast! I can't believe December is two days away. It seems that only a little while ago I was enjoying a beautiful Indian summer and now we have snow outside...
    I like to keep things minimal too when I decorate for the holidays. I like the idea of the jar of cookies. I think it's time to make biscotti more often. :)

  2. I was wondering if you had started blogging again and now I know. I'm with you a minimalist Christmas decorating. I like special dishes for the table, and the festive air but not so much the frou frou. Also hope you had a peppermint mocha at Starbucks :)
