Christmas Decoration Themes – Retro and Vintage

If you are a lover of all things retro and vintage and your home is filled with your collections, then this is your year! The stores have never been so inspired by all things vintage, kitsch & retro.

I love this American Airstream van which is available from Vintage Vacations

John Lewis have a fab range of retro baubles

Both the above are from Marks & Spencer

These baubles remind me of the packaging of Tunnocks snowballs – Rockett St George

Honeycomb pom poms from Party Parade available in various colours

Concertina garlands remind me of my childhood. These are from Rag & Magpie

Don’t forget the babycham glasses to go with this little lady from Harrods

Another childhood memory, candy canes, available from most supermarkets and looking great decorating this window?

Retro stripes and spots decorate this reversible gift wrap from Ikea.

No retro home would be complete without a snow globe. You can follow my easy step by step guide on how to make your own here.

    Hi Karen,

    Another great blog. Everything very pretty. The candy canes look well. I love the retro baubles and remember some of these from my childhood.
