Scandinavian Christmas Wreaths

Some gorgeous contemporary Brass Rings have arrived in the store and I can't wait to style them for Christmas. 

An advent wreath is very much part of my Danish Christmas tradition and is essential to the create jule hygge leading up to Christmas. 

In Denmark we begin Christmas with the Advent wreath. The wreath has four candles, and on the first Sunday leading up to Christmas one candle is lit,  followed by another one the following  Sunday. Only on the fourth  and final day of Advent all candles will be lit. Traditionally the Advent wreath is made out of fine spruce twigs and cuttings, often decorated with red berries and spruce cones, white candles and red ribbons for attaching the wreath to the ceiling. Lately the wreath has been given a contemporary update as seen here with our Strups Brass Rings.
