An Old fashioned christmas

Hello, friends! I am so happy to finally share all the Christmas decor I have been working on over here. I always start early so I can be ready to share with y’all after Thanksgiving. The events of this year have made me nostalgic for Christmas past so that is this year’s theme, An Old Fashioned Christmas. I tried to use lots of vintage and thrifted items to give that old fashioned Christmas feel. I even broke out the old school tinsel, y’all. Come on in and tour our Christmas house!

Let’s start with the first room you would see if you were here in person, the living room. The entry way is decked out with nut crackers and some vintage glass ornaments. I also tucked some colored lights throughout the house because the scream childhood Christmas to me.

And on my vintage tea cart, I dedicated a small tree to the big man himself, Santa Clause. Other than the tree itself, I found everything here at thrift stores.

I used all traditional Christmas colors in the living room this year.

The tree is adorned with all glass ornaments. I elevated it to protect them from wild children and also fit our tall ceilings a little better. As a bonus, I can fit the presents easier as well. I found lots of vintage glass ornaments at various thrift stores and I also scored these cute elves.

I got these pretty faux candles from Amazon. They are batter operated and remote controlled.

Into the dining room, I set the table just for y’all. 😉

The main tree in this room is full of homemade ornaments. My girls helped me string cranberries and popcorn and we made cinnamon and dried oranges ornaments. I also put some dried floral stems in here as well.

The buffet has another smaller tree full of our family ornaments, some homemade at school by our sweet girls. A vintage tea set and this beautiful thrifted porcelain Christmas doll join the tree.

Even the bar got a little Christmas sparkle. A friend recently gifted me this bottle of Hallmark wine and it’s right at home here.

And lastly, the kitchen. So much Christmas magic happens in the kitchen, so of course it has to be decorated too. There’s another small tree in here decorated with more vintage ornaments. My girls found a box of needlepoint ornaments and I found a box of small nutcrackers at one of our favorite thrift stores.

And that’s it for this year’s tour, y’all. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you are spreading Christmas joy around your own houses. This year calls for all the extra Christmas joy this season. Merry, Merry Christmas to all of you and thank you for joining me for another holiday tour!
