Advent is a time of colorful lights and making memories with family. The lighting of the first advent candle takes place on November 27th this year and officially announces the Christmas season. The advent wreath with a candle for every Sunday until Christmas Eve is a Christian tradition - although its appearance has changed over the years. The classic wreath of pine branches with four red candles and red ribbon is no longer as popular as it once was: advent candle holders have entered the Christmas living room. Reduced in form, they are beautiful and classy decorations and variations on the classic - sometimes even featuring greenery. Take a look at nine special designer advent wreaths popular this year - from the new pieces to the classics.
Advent candleholders and wreaths come in a variety of forms - elegant, minimalist, playful. Here you will find the perfect piece to fit to your style and your home.
Many advent candle holders can also be used after the Christmas period thanks to their neutral appearance. With the proper accessories, these advent candleholders are a pretty piece of décor all year round. This was demonstrated by guest blogger Kea in her guest post with the Gloria candleholder by Muuto. It would be too much of a shame if these advent wreaths had to spend 10 months of the year in a cupboard.
Brass, cast iron or gold plated - find your favorite piece! Create a comfortable atmosphere with subtle greenery, beautiful candles and other accessories. Or simply present your advent candle holders just the way the designers created them. It does not take much for a stylish Christmas decoration.
