Traditional Christmas Decorations
From the traditional Christmas tree to the traditional Christmas dinner, and everything in between, there is a yearning for tradition this Christmas season like never before.
The reason is probably obvious and you’ve undoubtedly guessed that COVID-19 has some serious influence over this trend. People want to remember back to a time when things were easier…
And let’s face it, what year wasn’t easier than 2020?
So, let’s go back to the time when our biggest worry was whether or not we had a snow day, and to make sure we didn’t leave anything off our Christmas letter to Santa….
For those of you looking to capture a Traditional Christmas, here is everything you need to make it happen!

Nordic Christmas Scandinavian Decoration
When I first told my husband about the popular Christmas trends for 2020, this next one confused him the most. He had no idea what this would even look like, when, in reality, this has actually been a Christmas trend for the past 2 or 3 years now.
Scandinavian design is all about simplicity and functionality. Now, I know what you’re thinking…how is this different than the minimalist trend?
In general, there are few slight differences between the two. However, when it comes to these two styles and how they represent Christmas style, they absolutely belong in separate categories.
With minimalist Christmas decorations, you have plenty of freedom to play around with colors. As long as the overall look is clean, it doesn’t matter if your color combination is red and green, pink and silver, or any other two options.
When it comes to a Scandinavian Christmas, color is a main component to the design. Think white…lots and and lots of white. Throw in plenty of natural light, wood details and you’ve got yourself the makings of Scandinavian Christmas decorations.
Check out these Scandinavian Christmas ideas to bring this vibe inside your home!
If you’ve read the first two blogs, or any blogs I’ve written in the past basically, I strongly believe that a look or theme should extend past one room. For weddings, that means in addition to the centerpieces, the design carries into other rooms the guests might enter. Christmas decorations are no exception to this rule, and this Christmas shower curtain is perfect for those Scandinavian Nordic vibes.
This little Lenox winter wonderland set comes with a Christmas tree covered in snow, a friendly snowman figurine and a beautiful house that lights up from the inside. Aside from small pops of traditional color, the all white look makes it perfect for your Scandinavian Christmas.
When you think of a Scandinavian Nordic Christmas, you probably think about lots of snow and the animals that live there, right? That’s why these polished silver napkin rings designed to mimic reindeer antlers are a must have for your Christmas dinner table this year!
All of the wood elements on this Christmas garland, plus the simplicity of the colors, make this a perfect accessory for your holiday decor. Drape this across your mantle, down the middle of your dinner table, or any other place you want to inject a little Scandinavian Christmas spirit!
We found the perfect Christmas tree ornament with Scandinavian style. This will be a year none of us will forget, and every Christmas you can unpack this wooden ornament and celebrate how you got through it all together!
Here’s some Scandinavian Christmas inspiration for all of you that love to get stuff personalized! Whether it’s a gift for someone else, or you hang it up on your front door, this all wooden snowflake is a beautiful greeting to all that come to your home.
Open flames during the Christmas season are almost always a really bad idea. One too many glasses of eggnog and it’s really easy to forget about those tapers you lit in the dining room hours ago. With this white wooden candle set you’ll bring the spirit of a Scandinavian Christmas to your home without the potential fire hazard!
Bringing in small touches of nature like this winter berry mistletoe, is an easy way to create a Scandinavian Christmas look. No matter how big or small your space is, there’s always room to hang this from your ceiling…just be prepared to get kissed if you find yourself standing underneath it!
Greet guests with this beautiful white washed wooden snowman that you can hang right on your front door. Your friends and family won’t have to wait to get inside to know what to expect to see!
While I was looking for Scandinavian Christmas inspiration, I saw plenty of creative ways that designers worked wood into their decorations. Something super obvious, but totally beautiful, is this small wooden tree with tiny white lights. Add this as a final touch to your mantle, or in a small room to bring in holiday cheer easily.
I’ve always felt that your Christmas tree, from the type of tree it is to the lights and ornaments you choose to adorn it with, set the tone for the overall Christmas style in your home. Scandinavian Christmas ideas, as I mentioned earlier in this blog, are all about shades of white and natural but clean elements. You wouldn’t cover your tree in over-sized rainbow Christmas lights, but this white star tree topper is the perfect final touch to the center of your entire design!
