Decorating for Christmas… it’s here so soon!

Dansk: Julen nærmer sig med meget hastige skridt… og det bliver altså noget andet med en lille pige i huset. Jeg får meget mindre tid til at gå og nusse med små bitte detaljer end jeg har haft i de andre år, så der skal tænkes kreativt men effektivt, når huset skal pyntes op i år. Men bliver det så hyggeligt, at så småt kunne starte vores egne juletraditioner op som Fraya vil kunne mindes når hun vokser op.

Sidste jul var vi værter juleaften, og jeg var så heldig at få en masse mos forærende af en veninde som arbejder med blomster. Jeg gik lidt amok med mos i mine dekorationer det år. Det er virkelig nemt at arbejde med, og med mos man kan hurtigt få nogen flotte dekorationer med få virkemidler.

En ting jeg godt kunne lide ved de dekorationer jeg lavede sidste jul, var at de ikke var for julede. Så mange af dem blev fremme både januar og februar med.

Jeg håber at du vil nyde billederne og lade dig inspirere.

English: Christmas is approaching very fast … and it is something else with a little girl in the house. I have much less time to go around and play with tiny detail, than I’ve had other years, so I will need to think creatively but effective, when I decorate the house this year. But it will be so nice to, little by little, start our own Christmas traditions that Fraya will remember when she grows up.

Last Christmas we were hosts on Christmas Eve, and I was fortunate to get a lot of moss from a friend who works with flowers. I went a little crazy with moss in my decorations that year. But it’s really easy to work with, and with moss you can quickly make attractive decorations with very few effects.

One thing I liked about the decorations I made last Christmas, was that they were not too Christmassy. So many of them were still out both in January and February.

I hope you will enjoy the pictures, and be inspired.
