With all of the hustle and bustle around here lately — finishing up my retro pink bathroom, baking holiday cookies, shopping and wrapping presents, and on and on — it came to my attention that no photos of our holiday decor set up had made it on the blog. While most everything is very similar to the last few years, there are a few new and retro holiday items on display.
I try to only get one or two new holiday decorations every year (which can be difficult!) to keep the budget in check. This year, besides the adorable Christmas Pup that Mom and Dad thoughtfully sent our way, there are only a few small additions to the decor. One of which is this vintage tree topper, found on Ebay.
It is plastic (maybe made by Bradford?) and shows some patina and is perfect for the top of our silver tree. I just love it!
The other new addition to our holiday decor is the hot pink vintage ornament wreath that I made when shooting the video tutorial — make a vintage Christmas ornament wreath for Retro Renovation.
It was loads of fun to collect all the ornaments and make them into this shiny, happy wreath that is now proudly displayed in my living room.
There are a few more retro putz style houses on the mantle too — a whole neighborhood!
You can find all of my mid century putz house patterns over on Retro Renovation, if you are feeling creative. They take a while to make, but are oh-so-fun.
Meanwhile outside, our already snow covered yard got even deeper with the arrival of 8-9 inches of heavy, wet snow overnight. Mr. Christmas flamingo is not looking so tropical these days…
… and Christmas Pup bravely stayed at his post through the entire storm.
Thankfully, it is nice and cozy inside. From all of us at the Retro Ranch, we wish you and yours a very merry, safe and wonderful holiday!
Leo, sing us into the new year!
…well…he tried his best. 🙂
