In Scandinavia the whole period of Christmas, from the first Sunday in Advent to New Year's Day, is marked by festivals and celebrated in traditional but beautifully contemporary style. Hygge, the Danish word for cosiness, is about being inside with candles, great comfort food and lots of cakes and sweets. The first week of December is baking week – enough has to be made to last the whole Christmas period. Jars of decorated cookies, gingerbread houses and clogs filled with little presents rub shoulders with simple wreaths, trees and tables decorated with white candles and fresh greenery. Brunches, cocktail and tea parties, lunches and dinners are celebrated with a mixture of traditional goodies and delicious modern recipes. Duck and pork rule on Christmas Eve, fish, ham and seasonal vegetables on Christmas Day. Sweets, biscuits, puddings and other treats abound – all washed down with gluwein and fruity cocktails. In this glorious book, illustrated with evocative photographs, Trine Hahnemann provides a cornucopia of 70 Christmas recipes showing us how we, too, can decorate our homes and make delicious dishes to celebrate Christmas the Scandinavian way.

The New Christmas Tree inspires readers to turn a holiday standby into a stunning design statement—whether they're looking to add something new to their traditional Christmas decor or create a unique holiday tradition all their own. A closer look at each one-of-a-kind tree reveals the real heart of these designs—beautifully handcrafted ornaments, garlands, and more, from felted bumblebees to delicate paper flowers. Some use traditional Christmas materials in novel ways, while others employ flea-market finds, household objects—even foodstuffs!—to create something entirely unexpected. Each chapter takes readers through the process of constructing a well-balanced tree that is rich in texture and dimension from topper to tree stand—selecting the appropriate lights, making and assembling the decorations, and adding the finishing touches that pull the look together. Also included are information on the fundamentals of tree selection, installation, and design; basic crafting techniques; sources for products, tools, and equipment; and care guidelines.
