This is a paid partnership with pieces from the Georg Jensen Christmas collectibles loaned for the purpose of the post.
Christmas will undoubtedly feel a little different for all of us this year. But if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed, it’s the annual release of the Georg Jensen Christmas Collectibles. Since 1984, the Danish silverware brand has designed exclusive Christmas ornaments to find a special place in every Scandinavian home. From baubles and candles to table trees, pieces have been given as gifts, a sweet little memory to bring out year after year to celebrate the festive season.
And once again, Georg Jensen has enlisted the vision of designer Sanne Lund Traberg who created last year’s collectibles with a strong Art Deco aesthetic. This year, the collection has a softer, Art Nouveau feel with a nod to Georg Jensen’s beginnings in the early 1900s. A Nordic winter garden has taken root, inspired by German artist Karl Blossfeldt’s floral photography and Lunde Traberg’s own garden.
You know I prefer a more seasonal, minimal approach to festive styling but I love the warmth of the 18kt gold plated pieces. It’s all about small details here. They bring a subtle sparkle to my simple Christmas decorations and I’ve pared the baubles with soft beige velvet ribbon for a more tonal look. My favourites are the delicate ice flower candle holders which dance in the candlelight and add a touch of magic to the table.
I find a great deal of comfort in baking during the colder months and this year and I’ve tried my hand at something a little different. Do you know about Klejner? These are a traditional Danish sweet treat, somewhere between a doughnut and pastry, made with the all-important cardamom for spice. You make the dough, twist it into shapes and then fry it until golden. Utterly delicious.
Aside from the tree, which we get much later, the living room mantlepiece is the only other space in the house I like to decorate. A clever Christmas Display frame makes it easy to style up your favourite baubles. I’ve placed mine on the mantlepiece with Ice Dianthus candle holders and eucalyptus cut straight from the garden. Simple yet beautifully festive, don’t you think?
The Ice Flower Georg Jensen Christmas collectibles are a limited edition for this year only, starting from £15.00.
