Ferm Living's founder tips to sets the table for Christmas

'Setting the table for Christmas is no mere task; it's a canvas on which memories are painted, stories are shared and traditions come alive', it says in Ferm Living's press release. Trine Andersen, Ferm Living's creative director and founder, shares her approach to preparing a holiday gathering.

'Winter can be such a dark, heavy time in Denmark, and the holiday season really leans into the famous Danish concept of hygge: lighting candles, decorating our homes and spending quality time with the people we love. There’s a focus on being present and appreciating each other’s company', Andersen says.

'My Christmas table is traditional with modern influences. In general, I like to embrace a more romantic feel in my home during the holiday season and I look for ways of combining the past and present through little details: silk ribbons on candlesticks, using the inherited silverware from my mother-in-law and purposely refraining from ironing the tablecloth for a more relaxed and rustic vibe.'

'The Christmas season isn’t a time for minimalism – at least not at my house! This year I have used a mix of floral arrangements, Christmas decorations and an abundance of candles. I also like to display seasonal fruits and let some components of the meal serve as their own decorative elements, like the clementine sponge cake. You invest so much time crafting exquisite kitchen creations; why not display them proudly?'

Andersen's top tips
1. Seat treats: Instead of place cards, consider placing a little gift that you have picked out for each of your guests – a thoughtful addition that will make them feel special and appreciated.

2. Food as decor: You spend so much time crafting beautiful creations in the kitchen – let them serve as decorative elements during your dinner.

3. Instant elegance: I always opt for fabric napkins when I host people for a meal – it’s a simple detail that instantly elevates the dining experience.
