Vintage is making a come back, and Bestlaminate is here to inspire you with vintage Christmas ideas! There is something about an old fashioned Christmas that makes us all smile. It’s actually quite simple to bring a vintage Christmas feel to your home.
Here are a few tips to bring vintage elements into your Christmas decor:
The Color Red
Something about the color red is so special and magical around Christmas time. Invest in simple red decor. Candles, ribbon accents, candy canes and even red ornaments can make your home feel cozy and so classic. Ask family members if there are any vintage dishware as well! These little touches on the dining table can help bring up memories past from family members.
Music is a very simple way to make your home feel special. If you have an old vinyl record player, put on some classic Christmas music. It’s a great way to add a touch of vintage decor to your holiday season. If you happen to have a piano and musical family members, tune it up and make it available for playing! There’s nothing like live music to create a sense of camaraderie and warmth in your home.
Does your family have any special Christmas food favorites? Spend some time in the kitchen to make something everyone will love. Your home smelling like holiday specialties is one of the best ways to put a smile on everyone’s face. A cup of hot apple cider, hot chocolate or cookies will bring the family together. Use apothecary jars and silver serving trays to add a vintage touch to your passed down family traditions.
There is nothing more classic about Christmas than a fireplace. Start a beautiful fire and gather everyone around the fireplace. Share stories and laugh together, enjoying this magical holiday. Decorate with stockings, garland, and lights to give a cozy feel to this intimate space.
Vintage Christmas decor is easier than you think! For an even more authentic feel, see if you can get antique Christmas decorations from family members. If you unfortunately can’t find any family Christmas decor, antique stores are usually a treasure trove for vintage Christmas decorations!
