Christmas Dinner 2015 - Scandinavian Theme


This year I decided to choose a country and incorporate as many of their Christmas meal traditions as I could into our meal. One of my friends, who is a regular diner at these "experimental" dinners, has a strong Scandinavian heritage. That made the meal choice simple. With a hefty portion of Danish recipes, I undertook the challenge. I very seldom brag on my meals here, but this one was absolutely delicious. Plus, we beat our personal best time for an evening meal.....we began at 5 p.m. and ended at 10 p.m.  

I used a LOT of red and white in the table linens, the dinnerware and flatware and serving pieces. I hope you enjoy.
 

The tablecloth and napkins are from Kohl's.


These great (and perfect for this meal!) plates are Food Network brand purchased at Kohl's.


I used a free downloadable Nordic font for the place cards.




We had to have a bottle of Aquavit! The polar bear bottle topper is from Sur la Table.


The red Christmas trees and ornaments were found at Hobby Lobby.


I forgot to get a close up shot of the reindeer candle holders, but if you look closely you can spot them in the middle of the table. They're from Sur la Table as well.
