Christmas countdown has started … Only 13 days left! Maikel and I teamed up again and this time we threw a ‘how to celebrate Christmas’ video to inspire all of you.

In the video, you will see how we decorated the Christmas tree. How we wrapped the greatest gifts from La Perla, Tom Ford, Polette, North Polar Bear, TaniUSA, MiuMiu and more.

We picked up our delicatessen at ‘Olie en Zo‘ and we’ve celebrated Christmas with an intimate group of friends.



When you want to give a small intimate Christmas or any other kind of celebration. There are a few things you have to keep in mind to make it memorable.

Invite – Make sure you invite your friends on time, so they can set the date in their busy agenda.

Dress code – If you planned to make a lot of pictures (and you probably will) It’s smart to pick a theme or a color story. So everyone blends in perfectly on every photo!

Place – Where are you going to celebrate? Make sure you clean up and decorate the room, so your guests will feel comfortable and impressed.

Food – Off course, you can make everything yourself, but why don’t you pick up some groceries at the delicatessen store, close to your home? Like we did at ‘Olie en Zo‘ . And if one of your friends love to make deserts, ask them to bring it! They will feel complimented and you have your hands free.

Drinks – What do your guests drink? Alcohol? Non-alcohol? I like to make it special, make some freshly infused water with seasonal fruits and mints or cinnamon. And prepare for a bottle of bubbles to toast!

Music – Background music is such an important thing, I bet you have ever been in a party and the music was so boring, to loud or not fine at all. Your guests will feel annoyed and probably want to go home early.

Environment – Make sure all your guests feel comfortable, relaxed and lead them through the party. Invite them to take the food, ask them if they want some drinks. And maybe set up some games!

Gifts – To make it memorable, make sure you get a small personalized gift before they go home.

For example:

  • Polette – stay tuned on my blog there will be a Christmas Giveaway!
  • AEUOEU – Use code aeuoeuTINA20 for 20% discount
  • Sudio Sweden – Use code Savourbytina for 15% discount
  • North Polar Bear – Use code Tina10 for 10% discount

Enjoy – The most important thing on a celebration, is having pleasure and fun.

Much love,
