Thanks for stopping by today. I am excited to share a few of my simple Christmas Decorating Ideas. I tend to lean towards sentimental Christmas decor. Things that have been handed down from one generation to the next.
With simple Christmas Decorating Ideas, you can create family traditions for years to come. Vintage ornaments, blankets & collections make memories for all ages.
It is part of who I am, family memories and traditions for my own children to carry on.
For instance, this picture of my husband and is flanked by a Christmas vintage style plate with the year that we were married. We have it sitting in our master bedroom. Simple and meaningful to us and our lives.
The ornament was made by my grandma for our first married Christmas. It is brought out every year. A tradition we will carry on for years to come.
The mantel above our bed is filled with greenery, candles and small reminders of our Christmases together.
Layering quilts, afghans and tables cloths made by my Grandma adorn my cedar chest. Topped with a galvanized water can that was a gift from my husband. It might not mean anything to anyone else, but each of us knows-and that’s is all that matters. It is another way to create Christmas Decorating Ideas.
My husband has collected snow globes with music boxes for years. At Christmastime, I display them throughout our home. This year they are the focal point of our Christmas tablescape.
Our Christmas tree is filled with vintage ornaments, ribbons and things that bring us joy. I will be sharing more about my two Christmas trees next week-s stay tuned.
Using vintage style Christmas ornaments I styled a tiered centerpiece.
Vintage ribbons, bows and ornaments fill glass vases and pretty vessels.
Vintage glass ornaments that were used our first years of marriage fill my candelabra.
Vintage village pieces now are used as decorations for a small Christmas tree.
Plaid ribbons and sentimental ornaments fill my champagne bucket to add a traditional feel.
I use my grandpa’s croquet box for just about every season. It’s just another way to bring my family memories with me along through the Holidays.
Lastly, Grandma’s ceramic angels from the Forties always make an appearance this time of year. They are so sweet. To be honest our daughters each want the whole collection. Hmmm…I gotta work on that…
These simple Christmas Decorating Ideas can bring joy to our family, children and grandbabies. And it is a great way to share family history and fun memories of Christmases past.
