Vintage Christmas Decorations

I went with a more vintage theme for my Christmas decorating this year. 

Glass jars with red lids, vintage pipe cleaner candy canes, vintage tin, and a red striped napkin on my tray. 

All three of my copies of A Christmas Carol. I love that book!

On top of my desk, I styled red and white candles. It looks so pretty when they are all lit and shining.

On my new cutting board, I have a new blue tray, teacups a friend gave me for my birthday, a cardinal figurine, and a vintage candle holder. 

My handmade snowglobe made with a blue mason jar and a green tea cup set sitting on my bookshelf. 

I got this white and red star on clearance at Marshalls at the end of the Christmas season last year. I chose to hang it in my window this year. 

For my tree this year, I chose to use red balls that were my great-aunt Lynn's, and the bookpage Christmas trees I used last year. For a tree skirt, I used a vintage holly tablecloth my grandmother gave me. 

I used red and white polka dot and red and white stripe wrapping paper for my gifts. I used these gift tags I found through Pinterest and tied up the gifts with red curly ribbon. It was really fast and simple which was just right for this year.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

Your decorations look really nice Kati. I love that star in your window and all the cute vintage touches.

Merry Christmas!

I love everything you did, but my favorite is the book-page Christmas trees! I'd love to know how to make those.
