French Vintage Christmas Theme
Two distinct decorating trends have become very popular over the past few years, namely French Provincial and Shabby Chic. Our French Vintage theme combines some of our favourite elements from both of these styles. As this theme unfolds you will see touches antique metal combined with glass, pearls and of course the elegance of crystal. A Vintage Christmas with the warmth and elegance of yesteryear, takes you back in time. Special occasions like Christmas were marked by using your best crystal silverware and china.
Vintage Christmas Decorating Elements:
• Crystals and glass • Antique metal • Elegant glass baubles • Fresh flowers • French provincial designs • Romantic elements • Appliqued flowers • Crystal wreaths and garlands • Intricate detailing • Shabby chic styles
Although a Vintage Christmas decorating theme is not using traditional Christmas colours, it is still very festive featuring antique designs. You can take in any direction you like by either bringing in more crystal and bling or hessian and lace. Use items not necessarily related to Christmas like roses and dollies with a pale pastel colour palette of mint green, soft pink and highlights of antique metals.
Decorate your tree with a Vintage Christmas theme with glass mercury baubles, evergreen garlands, pastel flowers, fairy tree toppers, glittery ribbon and silver pearls. Your vintage Christmas tree will look charming and beautiful, creating a shabby chic décor style.
