A Bdesign twist on the ‘12days of Christmas’ with DF Home

Christmas – it’s our favourite time of the year and we particularly love celebrating the tons of traditions that make this holiday season even more special and heartfelt. This year we’re giving the ever so popular ‘The 12 days of Christmas’ song a Bdesign twist and we’ve partnered up with Dino Fino Home to make it even more unique.

First, let’s get the dates straight. 

For those of you who might not be aware, the 12 Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. This special period has been celebrated in Europe since the middle ages so it’s high time we give this time some well-deserved spotlight. 

The 12 days of Christmas – The Song

Who doesn’t find themselves humming this Christmas classic at one point or another during the holiday season? You know how it goes –  

On the first day of Christmas,

my true love sent to me

A partridge in a pear tree.

The earliest known version first appeared in a 1780 children’s book called Mirth Without Mischief. (The first edition of that book sold for $23,750 at a Sotheby’s auction in 2014, but you can also buy a digital copy on Amazon.) Some historians think the song could be French in origin, but most agree it was designed as a “memory and forfeits” game, in which singers tested their recall of the lyrics and had to award their opponents a “forfeit” — a kiss or a favour of some kind — if they made a mistake.

What started off as a fun challenge turned out to be quite difficult because our team was spoilt for choice. We were looking for 12 Bdesign blog worth brands which could replace each of the 12 days. These top 12 have made it to our list. Fancy singing along? 

Day 1 – A partridge in a pear tree or in our Bdesign world we love the Adriani & Rossi Ceramic Vase.

Day 2 – The song says two turtle doves. We’ve chosen the Cattelan Italia Light instead. 

Day 3 – The LAGO softswing is up on our third day of Christmas instead of the classic ‘Three French Hens’

Day 4 – Next on our list the beautiful Arketipo In-Dependent takes its place instead of ‘Four Calling Birds’

Day 5 – We love what’s sitting comfortably on our list at number 5 – it’s the Quadrifoglio Warm floor light replacing ‘Five gold rings’

Day 6 – Six geese a-laying is next on our chosen Christmas song. Instead, the Bdesign team suggested that we shine a light on the fabulous Infinity Arigato shelving which we think is just divine.

Day 7 – Next up, at the comfy number 7 which is traditionally dedicated to ‘Seven swans a-swimming’ we thought we’d introduce you to Samoa Divani Pouf – seven is the magic number in this case!

Day 8 – Loving our Bdesign twist? We have four more to go. At number 8 we’re loving the exquisite Arketipo Lady Bird Complement which we think is kind of better than the song’s ‘Eight maids a-milking’ what do you say?

Day 9 – ‘Nine ladies dancing’ says the popular song. We say, Cattelan Italia Hawaii Mirror instead – which we’re certain the 9 dancing ladies would love too. 

Day 10 – Ten lords a-leaping and our chosen Siloma are a match made in design heaven

Day 11 – With two more spaces to fill, we think that this is the perfect time to introduce you to the SCAB Lisa Lounge. The song pays tribute to Eleven pipers piping – ours is better wouldn’t you say?

Day 12 – and finally, twelve drummers drumming end our Christmas classic song and our final spot is dedicated to the much loved Tonin Casa Hammer side table which is such a beauty. Remember, it’s also traditional to take your Christmas decorations down following Twelfth Night!
