Christmas preview at the biggest department store chain in Sweden Åhléns. We were met by this display at the entrance to their press room. I hope they will use these "parcels" in the stores for Christmas.
A red dress for Christmas or perhaps a sequin skirt in grey?

Why not invest in a red bra for Christmas. Or put it on your wish list from you partner!

Special bedlinen for the winter season. And why not decorate you bedroom (without carpet!) with Christmas Trees branches.

A Christmas in grey, sheepskin and red. And a nice plate/tray in pewter like metal. Traditional with embroidery and typical Swedish Father Christmas "Tomtar".

Father Christmas taking a ride on a red robin. A lovely and humouristic table decoration that makes you think of HC Andersens stories.

More old fashioned and vintage looking decorations. Note the red pie forms and baking accessories in red etc.

China for tea and glögg (mould wine, Swedish way). I have seen similar china at Anthropology in London.

A very classical "singing" candle holder that traditionally comes in brass, now in modern stainless steel look!

Santa Lucia is a very Swedish tradition that are celebrated 13 December by Lucia walking in a procession with candles in her hair and with maides, all singing lovely Christmas Carols. You can enjoy it in London. Check the website of SwedishChurchinLondon for more info!

Moss, a common decoration in Scandinavia during the Christmas Season. Pick your own or buy some false at Åhléns.

Very simple and elegant decorations for the tree by Muji who has shop in shops at Åhléns i Sweden.

White and red, crisp and fresh for a Christmas full of Scandinavian inspiration. The electric chandeliers are now seen all over the world (thanks to Ikea?). Advent candle holders might still be very Scandinavian with at tradition of lighting one new candle every Sunday of Advent and then the whole four for Christmas Eve.

Old fashioned skates and shoes for the girly tree!

Ski lodge inspiration for a secure snowy Christmas!

I love these forest animals for the three. Remind me of Mickey Mouse and Donald Ducks Christmas when they get help from Piff and Puff to dress the tree!

Christmas gnomes Scandinavian way!

Finally we will finish this Christmas Preview with a wine stopper! And of course
