Creating a Cozy Christmas with Vintage Christmas Vignettes

I tucked a bottle brush tree, Shiny Brite ornaments and vintage tinsel in my grandmother’s antique lunch pail and set up a larger bottle brush tree and a tiny ivory tree with some vintage treasure to create a sentimental and charming vintage Christmas vignette.

Bottle brush trees come in all colors and sizes. Whether they are retro bluish-green, bright and festive colors,  soft and muted, ivory or bleached, I love them all!  When creating a vignette, look for ornaments or accessories with similar colors to the bottle brush trees you have on hand.

    I so love all these ideas. So adorable. I really wonder, though, how people store them so they don’t get smashed?!

      I put my small ones upright in ornament storage boxes in the individual spots for the ornaments and that has worked well. I have a few vintage tins that I can store them upright in as well. This seems to work for me!

    Ahhhhhhh!!! This is just what I needed, Amber. Lovely, happy Christmas trees! <3 So glad you linked up at Share Your Style a week ago as I am happy to feature your post at this week's SYS #328 for you. <3

    I am TIRED from school (as I am sure you are also, though music MUST be such a happy comfort… I love taking our PABS kids to Music each week – I'm finally learning about music from our elementary teacher, who is always happy to share what he knows! I get WAY more out of it than the kids, but it's great for me!!! Plus I get to sing and sometimes quietly harmonize with Mr. Miller when he sings to the kids. He doesn't seem to mind. 😉 ) Anyway, visiting your blog is such a treasure for me…

    Thank you for the beauty you create,
    Christmas hugs,
    Barb 🙂
