Blue Christmas

My love of all things Scandinavian goes into overdrive as the holidays approach and the icy winter wonderland outside my window has me thinking blue and white for this year's holiday decor. It began with my ordering a version of this Advent candle wreath from The Linnet's Wing on Etsy. Following is further inspiration and as I am linking up to the Blue and White Bash at The Pink Pagoda today, please click over and see who else is sharing the love. Thank you, Jennifer, for organizing!

We traditionally start decorating the weekend after my daughter's birthday which falls on December 4th. It is going to be a great weekend!

  2. I am so happy to find your blog. It is really well done. If I had chinoiserie wallpaper like you showed in your post I'm afraid I would keep all the gifts haha. Jenn at East Meets South

  3. Isn't blue and white just wonderfully adaptable to so many gorgeous looks?

  4. The second photo-how gorgeous is that wreath? The greenery looks to be rosemary rather than juniper, and do you know what was used to appear as super size juniper berries? Or is there a juniper cultivar I must know about?!

    1. Hi Stephen,

      It is rosemary and the accents are actually a variety of eucalyptus called Eucalyptus globulus. I occasionally see it at my florist; it is a great addition to arrangements.

      Thanks for stopping by Henhurst!

      All best,
      Phyllis
