The best part of the season, in my opinion.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this year advent is super long since Christmas Eve is on a Saturday.
I am a huge advent fan!
I love the anticipation, the preparations, the gatherings, the feeling of working towards a goal
- and new beginnings.
This year I wanted a new twist on our advent decoration. I took 4 silver candlesticks in various heights, (one I have bought, one I have been given and a couple I have inherited), put them on a silver tray, added a few pine cones along with some cinnamon sticks for nice Christmassy smell and added purple candles with silver number stickers on.
As for the colour of the candles - I am old fashioned this way.
I normally prefer white candles, but purple is the colour of advent and the only 'right' colour in this connection
- for me.
What colour do YOU prefer for your advent candles?
