There are so many ways to style your parties over the Xmas and New Year season. whether you love the romance and magic of it all, the glitter and glam, or the rustic and botanical possibilities as you bring a little of the outside in and cosy up in front of a roaring fire. Vintage is always big in my household, as my husband and I try and recreate a little mid century nostalgia into our retro home, harking back to former Xmas's from our 1960's childhoods. In my mind decorations were better (and scarier!) and chocolate bars were the size of your arm. Our two young men (now in their twenties) let me indulge in this strange passion, and I wonder what they may take with them into their own family traditions when they have kids of their own?
A mid century Xmas!
So here are a few winter and seasonal inspiration boards I've created for you to enjoy, with vintage very much at their heart. Hope you enjoy them, and which would you choose?
