The winter solstice is a few weeks away and the sun never really gets very high in the sky here in Southern Sweden (is it the same where you are?). This can only mean one thing: it’s time to get cosy over casual, candlelit dinners. In preparation for my favourite time of the year (admittedly it’s also birthday season so I’m a little biased!), Genevieve Jorn and I had a fun afternoon creating this holiday table setting using beautiful items from the Nordal homeware collection (my Danish partner who are not only the loveliest team ever, they also design the most beautiful items – seriously!). We selected natural linens, cast iron candle holders, tactile stoneware and mouthblown glass combined with a foraged wreath, dried poppies and age-old wood furniture to create a rustic vibe. Bring on the hygge!

Ahhhh, so pleased with the natural materials and layers of texture. I feel completely ready for the holiday season now!
In case you’d like to know where any of the items are from, we’ve mapped out an entire ‘get the look’ below.
And here’s a styling tip I learned from the pro (Gen!): linen tablecloths will arrive ironed and folded. To get the ‘relaxed crease’ look, wet the entire linen cloth and then hang it up to dry (if it’s curtains you can simply hang them in place) – and then simply throw over the table.
And finally… the wreath! This year I’m really into rustic foraged wreaths. I’m hoping to create a DIY post shortly so keep an eye out!

Hope you feel as inspired as I do to get together over long lunches / dinners under candlelit!
I’m heading off to a friends cabin in the woods with friends and family for a couple of days (weeeeee!) – back Monday – see you then! Have a lovely weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving to all American friends and family!
