7 Scandinavian Christmas tree decorations

Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my happiest childhood memories. There were boxes full of decorations and it was always a competition who got to hang the gold star on the top of the tree. When you’re one of seven siblings, you had to be in quick to win that coveted prize!

While those childhood Christmas trees were decorated in a colourful mad array of decorations, as an adult I like to take a more minimal approach and concentrate on a few colours or a theme. Here’s my roundup of seven of my favourite Scandinavian inspired Christmas tree decorations.
