You hear that? That’s the sound of festivity nigh at hand. And I, for one, am ready to get to decking my halls. But rather than going the traditional route, I’m hankering for a more modern take on holiday decor.

In Finland these fragile straw mobiles are called 'Himmeli' or 'Olkihimmeli,' & in Sweden 'Oro'/'halmkronorna'. Many other regions throughout Northern & Central Europe also have their version of the himmeli. They range from a simple straw design to an elaborate array of geometric shapes adorned with feathers, paper flowers, & sometimes candles. Traditionally hung above the dinner table to ensure that next year's rye crop would be plentiful, today they are often used as Christmas decor.
