First Advent In Swedish Tradition

Yesterday was the first Sunday b4 Christmas Eve...

My Swedish family always gathered at our place during first Sunday b4 Christmas. It became a tradition when me and my cousins and their families get bigger.  There is nothing special in this occasion. Families and friends gathered to mingle and chit-chat and of course with mulled wine and some goodies like, saffron buns, ginger cookies, sweets and more are the highlight. To make the story short, here was my shots...

Welcome to the Swedish Simple Life
Good food and good people, make us alive...
Just a simple gadgets that been recycled... in our foyér...

A very simple centerpiece in our coffee table...
My vintage mulled wine heater... I used in a non-alcohol mulled wine 
 Matches with the vintage cups as well as the mulled wine teaspoons
Another set for mulled wine with alcohol
Adding one more time to show you the teaspoon set... Very X´massy, huh
I served in the foyér so my family and friends feel warm when they come in
Baking at 02 a.m. so my guests can have fresh stuffs direct from my kitchen §;-)
 I baked a X´mas muffins. I modified with X´mas spices to feel the season 

X´mas fritters was modified from where I came from...
Pannacotta, ginger bread cheese cake and X´mas chocos...
 Saffron buns...
Then the mingling begins... so much laughter as always... 
 Here are the ladies of the family
 The baby of our family is Georgina...
