Decorating Your Home Or Antique Shop In Vintage Holiday Style

How To Decorate For The Holidays In Vintage Style Using What You Have

It's easier than you think to decorate your Antique shop or home in Vintage holiday style. On the second floor of Antiques On The Farmington, Collinsville CT., one of the dealers did a great job accessorizing her booth for the holidays. She tends to carry a lot of vintage kitchen wares as well as cottage collectibles. For the holidays, she pulled out all her greed, red and white and red and cream collectibles and used them to showcase her holiday displays.

Building Towers of Vintage Holiday Fun

A master at creating "towers", this antique dealer stacked green glass serving pieces on top of an old candy tin. She than added pine cones and other holiday decor. This stacking tower was so charming and nostalgic.

Using Natural Trim Such As Pine Cones, Berries, Branches

I loved how this dealer uses what she has on hand and then adds natural trim such as pine cones, tree twigs, berries, leaves, branches etc to her collectibles.

Pull Out Your Vintage Crystal, Silver, Milk Glass For Holiday Decorating

And you don't need an antique store to this. You can create a vintage style holiday by looking in your closets and cabinets at home.

Pull out your crystal, your milk glass and your silver. You probably have plenty hidden away in your very own China closet that yo can adapt for the holidays.
