Augustus wrapped in Christmas cheer.

For the 8th consecutive year, I took care of the Christmas decorations in Augustus.
Ah, lovely jubbly! (remember Del Boy?)

Last Thursday I decorated the huge chandelier in the restaurant with paper 'snow crystal' garlands.

The big tree and other decorations I did the next day.

Early this Sunday morning, before the guests arrived, I photographed the Christmas atmosphere, because it is such a beautiful tradition.
Just to briefly reflect upon the wow effect...

Because sometimes I forget how outrageously cool this place actually is.


  1. Lovely as ever! Well done, Ingrid.

  2. I love the fishes, can't find them anywhere in DK :"(

  3. Big bunny is jumping over the table :)
