Minimalist Christmas Decor | Scandinavian | 2019

A video about minimalist christmas decor in Scandinavia, Sweden.

Custom over right here is to begin adorning for Christmas simply earlier than Creation 1st.
For me Christmas is all about being cozy through the darkest time of the 12 months.
On my birthday which is December 21st we solely get 5 and a half hours of daylight which makes it paramount to brighten issues up with candles and lights.
I wish to maintain my Christmas decor easy. It’s principally lights, paper decorations, greenery and booze. All you want mainly.

Calendar candles are favourites of mine. Paper decorations are an different favourite, so low-cost and simple to make, seems to be superb and recyclable too!
Pomanders are superb. The only method to make your own home scent lovely and it seems to be fairly too!

Glögg is our conventional mulled wine which is normally served sizzling with blanched almonds and raisins.
When it comes right down to wrapping items I’m going for brown and white kraft paper and string.
One other Swedish custom is the arrival candles. You gentle them one after the other counting down every Sunday of introduction till Christmas.

I didn’t get a tree final 12 months due to the transfer and whereas I like my vacation decor to be minimal I did miss having one so this 12 months I feel I’d. Nonetheless torn between getting an actual tree and getting a pleasant pretend one. Let me know which is the extra sustainable choice if you recognize!

Whereas my decorations are minimal and I don’t actually purchase any new ones from 12 months to 12 months anymore I do be certain that to all the time have recent flowers

I wish to maintain some kind of gentle in all of the home windows. An all time favorite are white paper stars.

  1. This is all so beautiful and relaxing. My husband just brought home an advent candle for me from Denmark and I am so excited to find the perfect spot for it.

  2. I say cut a real one, there’s plenty of trees, and recyclable too. Or pot it live and plant it outside again. My parents and I did that as a kid. Very fun. Still growing today Have a wonderful Christmas from the States!

    P.S. I’m a truck driver, so I’ll make some of the first ornaments for the truck. I appreciate it.

  3. I would not think that your star is a Moravian star as someone mentioned it was. If you google it you will see what I mean.

  4. This video is oddly satisfying and therapeutic 😌

    P.s. I make videos too if you’re interested x

  5. Loved the paper decor. Eco friendly economic and full of possibilities for craft lovers. Very peaceful and harmonious decor. Thanks a million for sharing.

  6. I love your simple and elegant Christmas decorations. Merry Christmas!

  7. Thankyou from UK. Your home looks so cosy especially with the sleeping cat in the chair. We have a Christmas tree with roots and in the summertime there are lots of tiny cones on it. We plant it out in the garden after
    Christmas and then dig it up when we need it again.

  8. The lamp in the Windows at 10.59 – o would loooove to know where to get that. It is so so stunning.

  9. I'm so in love with everything presented in your video! So simple, but so beautiful! The orange and cloves trick I've learned from a Swedish friend of mine years ago. It was such a great discovery!

  10. Hi Benita! I love your ideas. Would you mind showing how to make that pretty paper star at the end of the video? Thank you! 😊

  11. I just made the paper ornaments, thank you so much for the idea! Very quick, easy, simple, and lovely 🙂

  12. The adhesive tape is not necessary…

  13. Love the white, crisp and clean look! It is very minimal but charming!

  14. I don't think there's such a thing.

  15. I am comforted by this channel, so lucky to find it!
    The colors and the items using here are really nice, your cat as well(^_^)
    thank you from Japan

  16. Hi Benita. Your little Christmas tree looks very much like a Norfolk Island pine. My family had one of these for a potted Christmas tree during my childhood. It was as close to a proper Tannenbaum that we could get at that time in tropical Queensland, Australia. Every year my father would bring it in and we would make a mad mess of decorating it. After Christmas, he would carry it back out to its spot in the back yard where it would happily wait to be the centre of attention again. When it grew too tall, he planted it, but even after, it was always known as 'the Christmas tree'.

    A happy and safe Christmas season to you and all. ❤️

  17. Beautiful, tfs happy holidays from my family to yours.

  18. My Farmor would make those paper decorations with myself & my brother when we were young, along with paper baskets that were woven from strips of paper that you put sweet inside to hang on the tree. Lovely video, puss puss! 💜

  19. As I start planning for Christmas, I keep thinking of this video. There is a lot of beautiful content this time of year, showing everyone’s Christmas decor. A lot of it overwhelms me. Thank you, Benita, for reminding me that I can have a perfectly cozy Christmas without all the fuss and bother. This is just what I want and need. Thank you!

  20. Great video, I just made a video about minimalism at Christmas and I think that the consumerism isn’t great, esp if people are going into debt to buy gifts

  21. Love your video. I have a similar one I just posted with our Scandinavian decor. We too did the pomander balls! Have a wonderful Christmas season.

  22. Should watch this video in 2x speed

  23. Christmas is another business money making time like all religion in the world
    Killing animals
    Buying buying and buying stuff forever and ever

  24. I liked this upload so much! I prefer minimal and diy decorations too.

  25. I like to use newspaper to wrap gifts! I think it is a sustainable and funny way to do it 🙂 Once, I used a foulard (a silk scarf) to wrap a gift for my mum too, so she received a double gift 😉

  26. Benita podrán agregar subtitulos en castellano? Me encanto todo lo que vi. Sirve como disparador de ideas. Gracias hasta pronto

  27. This was so interesting what time does the sun come up❓

  28. Not sure if you celebrate Thanksgiving in Sweden but I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!! Love you! 💗

  29. There’s a lot to be said for your minimalism at Christmas. It take me days to decorate and days to put it all away, but I am just not a minimalist. I like lots of decor and color and sparkle. I do love your videos though and enjoy seeing your lifestyle. Merry Christmas!

  30. "I just do what i please and what fits my lifestyle" <3
    That's it !!! The perfect sentence .

  31. Cute ideas for ornaments. Love your stapler by the way.

  32. We've had an artificial Christmas tree for 15 years, but it was finally time to let it rest in tree heaven! I wanted to buy a real one, some sort of Araucaria, but I figured that if I bought another artificial one (a good one that lasts us at least another 15 years) the amount of plastic that wraps real trees, and the high risk of our tree dying within one year or two, did not compensate for a living tree. So, we invested in a good fake one an I feel we did the right thing! 🙂

  33. Well in Greece the tradition is to have a small decorative shop or boat and decorate it. Nowadays all of as prefer the trees but some of us put both. https://www.infokids.gr/giati-se-polla-meri-tis-elladas-stoliz/

  34. So gorgeous! Reminds me of my childhood in Norway 🙂

  35. I like how light and simple Christmas is at your place. In some parts, Christmas is just too over the top!

  36. nice decorations Benita . i prefer to buy real tree .

  37. Thanks for making this, I asked you on Instagram if you would and you did!

  38. Having a live tree and planting it outside is the best option. If you don’t have land, give it to someone who does. Also for wrapping you can use fabric that you recycle by buying thrift shop tea towels or table cloths, and make reusable fabric wraps, or bags.

  39. Lovely decor🎄🎋 and i love your cat! so peaceful watch her sleep😊
