My birthday: Table setting with soft touches of color in the middle of winter

For my birthday we didn’t go to a restaurant, but rather ate at home and what better excuse to decorate in a pretty way the table, even though we were only 4. There are no excuses, especially if it is for a birthday, don’t you think?

I still find it strange to celebrate my birthday in winter (northern hemisphere) when for so many years I have celebrated it with sun and at the beach or pool (southern hemisphere). So, I was inspired by both to create this beautiful table setting.

With some pieces that I found in second-hand stores and twigs fallen from the forest that I have close to the house. Candles and more candles in a Scandinavian style, to add that "hygge" touch that I love.

A palette of pastel colors with golden tones, from the dishes that I used.  I had shown them before on my Instagram account. These dishes were painted by my husband's grandmother, they have a beautiful meaning and a lot of tradition.

How do you celebrate your birthday?

    I love the combination of the evergreen branches (looks like a type of fir) with the lavender mums. So pretty.
