Now the festive season is going to start. I can't believe that it is not even four weeks until christmas. To get a little bit into the mood i really like to invite friends on the weekends to bake christmas biscuits or cooking a seasonal dinner together after work. Therefore it is always nice to have a well-laid table. As everybody knows me i don't like all this glitter and kitsch when it comes to christmas scenery and it wouldn't fit my style at all, but when you browse here and there you can definitely find a few plain decoration. For me it must look clean and authentic. I prefer simple tableware, a nice table cloth, a few simple candleholders combined with a little bit of greens. That's it. And i think it doesn't need that much if you choose the right items. For sure when it comes to the final christmas table on the 24th it will look a bit more festively, during the weeks before i don't want to have too many christmassy stuff around me. I am looking forward to see your tables and already wishing you a peaceful advent season.
