Go Rogue: Vintage Christmas Decor
As the weather gets chilly, the frost covers our windows, and the countdown to Christmas is gets closer, our cheeks get Rosy Red, and here at Helen Olivia Flowers, we think about well- Flowers!
We want to sprinkle some vintage magic into your home this holiday season with a wonderful array of vintage Christmas decorations from our top designers.
Thanks to HGTV, we can share some photos of our vintage Christmas decor at an undisclosed location. That’s right, Helen Olivia is going rogue with you and showing off our vintage rosy red never before seen photos.
So what exactly does it take besides a keen eye for style and love of flowers to make your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or YuleTide holiday gathering vintage rosy red?
Let’s dive in and explore some designs below.
Why You Should Choose Vintage Christmas Decor
This vintage de jour Christmas decor is piled high with hundreds of satin red roses laced together with thick scarlet bows and decorated with long thin pine branches. The Christmas decor featured above was designed to fit the holiday event and the homeowner’s taste and style. In addition, we lit two red candles surrounded by vintage glass lanterns to cast the ultimate Vintage vibes on this Holiday soiree.
There hasn’t always been a tradition of putting up a Christmas tree, decorating it with ornaments, and wrapping fairy lights around it. Even the tradition of the wreath once did not exist.
So how vintage are we talking when we go rogue at Christmastime? When did this tradition start? And, why do we still decorate our homes every year for Christmas?
Christmas decorations have a long tradition, just like many other events of the year. For instance, antique Christmas ornaments like small Santa clauses or snow-covered houses have been around since the 1930s.
They were traditionally made from metallic mercury, so they are so precious and mean so much to many families. They often get passed down as family heirlooms from generation to generation.
Another interesting fact about Christmas decorations, particularly Christmas trees, is that they were not always brought inside and were covered with decorative items.
In fact, the first electrically lit Christmas tree was created in 1882. It has become a popular trend ever since, and it is hard to find a house without one nowadays.
So, why should you choose vintage Christmas decor?
Vintage Christmas Decor
Whether you are looking to decorate your home or planning an event and need a hotel florist or holiday event florist, Helen Olivia Flowers has everything you need.
If you live in or are visiting the DMV area, Helen Olivia Flowers has the perfect Christmas wreath for you.
Now, you might be wondering, what do they offer?
Depending on your style, there’s something for everyone. For example, if you want a simple, elegant look with a nice, earthy wooden touch, you might be interested in the Natural Birch Wreath.
However, maybe you are looking for something with a little more of a classic look. When you think of a Christmas wreath, you imagine a green leafy display with metallic bobbles or bows.
If this fancies your taste, Helen Olivia Flowers also offers a Fresh Metallic Wreath that maintains a traditional look with a modern, stylish twist.
That being said, maybe you want to try something completely different, something you have never done before, and change up the routine of the same Christmas decorations year after year.
For those people wanting to stray away from the mainstream, why not have a look at the Tobacco Leaf Wreath? This one will catch people’s eyes and get them talking about your unique decorations!
Be daring. Have some fun with decorating this year!
Of course, when you pick a wreath, you cannot forget the bow. The bow is the crucial element to the design!
So, you want to make sure you have something unique to go along with your wreath. Perhaps you’ve seen a design you like on HGTV and want to replicate it.
Try choosing a design with some color. Spice up that Apple cinnamon cider with bold reds and vintage satin blues.
Hey, why not create some color with a bold tartan bow? The Red Cornwall Tartan Bow has some great features going on. Its lovely winter style with the tartan patterns will wash away any of your winter blues.
Another great choice is the Burgundy Taffeta Bow which looks as delicious as a glass of mulled wine. It brings cozy vibes to your home.
Now, we cannot forget about flowers. Helen Olivia Flowers has a fantastic selection of bouquets that are great as a gift or as another decorative element for your home over the holiday season.
