5 Inspiring Scandinavian Tablescapes


Our last trip with Princess Cruises to Scandinavia (we did this one!) had me so inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian entertaining, I had to pull together some inspiration! Helsinki was one of our favorite stops. There was something very cozy and approachable about this city and it also seemed so kid-friendly too. While we were there, I scoured Scandinavian home stores for inspiring entertaining items. I came home with the beautiful brass candlestick holders that were heavier than all of my winter coats I packed! I also bought some napkins, paper plates, tea and a unique serving tray. Scandinavian entertaining is similar to the region’s overall decor, it’s incredibly simple and minimal, yet cozy at the same time. There is a modern touch to it, but it can also be rustic too. And the two items you will always see on the table… beautiful napkins, usually linen and candle sticks. Scandinavian people love candle light and I don’t blame them… we love it too! Below are 5 beautiful and charming Scandinavian table escapes to inspire your next dinner party.
