Together around the table


It is time to slow down and gather around the table with friends and family for a feast of all senses. For a true Nordic touch, let a gentle scent of cinnamon and spices linger around, or embrace the season by bringing in some elements from nature. Fragrant fir twigs are perfect for the occasion. 

Kaamos – Very Finnish Thing

Christmas brings light and joy in the middle of the polar night, a dark period called kaamos. The lack of sunlight creates a sense of quiet - and with some luck, the Northern Lights appear

A simple yet beautiful wreath is easy to make and instantly creates a Christmas feel.

Simple Christmas Wreath

You need a bunch of fresh fir twigs, some bendy metal wire, masking tape, thread, and strong scissors. Use a large pot to create a circle by wrapping the wire three times around the pot leaving some extra wire in both ends. Take off the circle and secure it by wrapping the extra wire around it - you may use masking tape too if required. Cut the fir twigs into around 10cm pieces and simply attach them in between the wire circles using thread when needed. Hang the wreath on the door or a wall for an instant Christmas feel.
