Christmas celebrations marked by tradition and authenticity

Traditional Christmas decorations are still a safe bet. This return to the basics takes us back to the magic of our childhood. These classics of the Christmas spirit are like a Madeleine de Proust, a sweet family memory. Authenticity is therefore more than ever in vogue at the end of the year. But only if you add a modern touch. The secret? Focus on classic elements, mixing them with contemporary pieces.

Timeless and emblematic, green, white and red colors are inviting in the foyer. These shades undeniably bring a warm atmosphere and leave no doubt about the festivities to come. For a touch of modernity, a few shiny and glittery elements will revive and perfect the decoration, as well as objects focused on nature.

Every room in the house is transformed for the occasion. On the front door, a beautiful Christmas wreath welcomes the guests. Holly, fir branches and pine cones adorn this authentic room. As well as dried flowers and small wooden objects reflecting current trends. In the living room, luxurious and fragrant candles, fairy figurines and other decorative elements are placed above the fireplace. The traditional woolen socks are hanging up, patiently waiting to be filled with gifts by Saint Nicholas.

Flamant

In the center of the room, the king of Christmas stands proudly. The tree is dressed in its red and white coat, combining perfectly with its green branches. A few gold, silver or wooden baubles provide the final contemporary touch. And to accentuate this mix of styles even more, baubles and garlands in original shapes will give a new lease of life to the end-of-year celebrations. Christmas thus embraces tradition just like modernity.

In order to immerse any home in this atmosphere, the brand Flamant offers a wide Christmas collection: fairy trees, nostalgic ornaments, furniture and textiles with traditional tartan print, not to mention natural decorations in wood, rattan and pine cones. Garden furniture stores in Belgium work with many brands that specialize in Christmas decorations. Some of them even have their own Christmas market like Plaisir du Jardin.

Would you like to give your home the most distinguished ornaments and accessories? In Belgium, many designers are committed to designing top-of-the-range Christmas decorations that will leave you dreaming… They pay particular attention to the details, making these elements real little festive gems.

The family business Goodwill specializes in Christmas decorations. The range of products is particularly varied. The company offers ornaments, baubles, wreaths, dolls and nutcrackers, each one more magical than the last. The design team reinvents the collections every year while keeping a part of tradition. To discover this magical world like a fairy tale, visit the 1,200 square meters showroom in Kontich, near Antwerp.

The florist Bô Flowers Signature, in Grand-Bigard, unveils in its Warm Christmas 2021 collection sublime little pieces in the colors of a traditional Christmas: Advent wreaths with red and green cylindrical candles, conical Christmas trees made of pine cones, garlands of LED balls and strings, handmade natural wood trees…

Other designers are putting together Christmas decorations in a more original style. In the heart of Brussels, the New De Wolf store offers colorful and original designs for the holidays: multicolored glass reflector balls in the shape of fruit, vegetables or even sweet treats will adorn the most extravagant of trees. At Ace Light and L’autre Lumière, the lighting brand Moooi also offers an offbeat version of holiday decorating. Among its eccentric and atypical ornaments: dwarf rhinoceros, bearded leopard, roaring sloth, indigo macaque. Unique and luxurious pieces, ideal to mix with traditional elements.

To complete these enchanting objects, it’s time to install the stars of Christmas: the candles.

The Cape Gold collection from the Belgian candle brand Onno will also be a welcome addition to any table.
