Styling with Advent wreath

If there’s one thing we like, it’s the creative reinterpretation of traditional elements. Finding a new way to use something we’re all familiar with is as useful in architecture as it is in floral arranging and cooking.

Advent wreath was always one of our favourite Christmas traditions. Counting down weeks until Christmas is an exciting time for kids, but creating (or picking) a new wreath each year was always an exciting time for us. Because we fully decorate our homes a week before Christmas, the Advent wreath is like a little sneak peek at Christmas styling.

For years, we only used them as table centrepieces. This year, we used them to create little Christmas nooks, perfect for styling a console table in the entryway or a sideboard in the living room.

And when it comes to decorating, we love to use items (hand)made of natural materials and reuse old and charming pieces, such as these old metal cookie cutters. We replaced traditional wreaths with metal and concrete candle holders.

Not sure if there is such thing as “minimalist decorating” but we are big fans.

Our dearest friend made this awesome candle holder like it’s no big deal. In case you like it but don’t know anyone as talented as he is, you can order one from here and here.
Copper or brass ones are so pretty.
