Our first Christmas in our first home

I’m so excited, not only is it almost December but we’re also hosting Christmas for the very first time and we’re doing it in our first home.

I love Christmas and my Danish family Christmas is full of traditions – firstly, Christmas is on the 24th, we eat duck and pork for main and finish it off with rice pudding (omg it’s good):

We dance around the Christmas tree singing carols and we then open our presents. Last year’s tree (sissy and Welly’s heads included too):

This year I’m wanting to make the house on the lake into a cosy cave of loveliness, my inspiration is a Scandinavian Christmas. Again my obsessing with Pinterest is coming through and I’ve created a bit of a mood board: I love bringing the outdoors inside:

I’m hoping for a big tree too and love the red, white, gold and woody colours of the decorations:

Now I just need to go get it all 🙂 what will your theme be this year?
