Today, I am participating in the DIY Deck the Home Blog Tour I am sharing a few of my ideas for Vintage Style Christmas Decorating.
It’s all part of the 5 week series I have been doing with 20+ other bloggers. Every Sunday evening we have been sharing some of our favorite and best Christmas DIY projects and ideas.
Tonight’s post is about some of my Vintage Style Christmas Decorating tips and ideas.
I have always had a love of vintage style and pieces. From being enamored with my grandma’s home, her tea cup collection, crocheted items and love of family heirlooms, I gained an appreciation of all things vintage.
My collection of vintage blue mason jars started years ago. Having my grandpa’s original croquet box seems like the perfect way to display my vintage jars and bottles. Especially at Christmastime. Filling them with real greenery and faux floral picks, the bottles become a statement piece in our living room/kitchen area.
The kitchen open shelves are a fun way to create Vintage Style Christmas Decorating. With a couple of thrifted Christmas plates, crystals, my moss tree, vintage candlesticks, chippy tin mugs, and, of course, Grandma’s vintage scale, this space is ready for Christmas.
The blue rimmed plate is a thrift find. The year inscribed on it, is the year my husband and I were married. Definitely one of my favorite pieces up there.
Moving to the right of the open shelves, is a vintage cupboard given to me by a friend that was going to take it to the dump. I stopped that as soon as I could! I have enjoyed it for years, and will for a long time from now.
The Victorian birdcage is a gift from my dad. Another one of my favorites. I have it up year round and enjoy filling it with seasonal décor.
I like the frosted wreath and greenery against my vintage style mirror. And, of course more vintage blue glass.
Swinging back around towards the living room, You get a glimpse of my living room decorated for Christmas. You can find that Christmas tour here.
For a tiny peek at my Christmas tree, I have used a vintage French crate to contain my Christmas ribbons. I will share more of that with you later this week.
Until then, thanks so much for stopping by to join me with my ideas for Vintage Style Christmas Decorating.
