What Houzz contributors are saying:
Traditionally, Scandinavians use small Santa-figurine decorations and angel ornaments in their Christmas arrangements, which they don’t just hang on the tree but sit on flat surfaces, such as the mantelpiece and console table. Just remember not to overdo it – you don’t want your home to look cluttered. Make a garland with Christmas tree branches and tie it with a bright red, silver or gold ribbon. Or, for a more modern look, arrange some sculptural branches in a simple vase and hang a few ornaments from them. Hanging some mistletoe above a doorway is a lovely Scandi tradition that you may wish to recreate here. For a coordinated look, tie it up with a ribbon that matches your festive colour scheme.
