MidcenturyChristmas

Welcome back to the blog! Decorating your home in a Mid Century Modern way can add a touch of whimsy and uniqueness to your home for the holidays. Here are some things you can do to add a little Mid Century Modern Christmas magic to your home this year.

1. Make homemade Christmas decorations.

There are a few reasons why you should make your own homemade decorations. It may be difficult to find Mid Century Modern Christmas ornaments, stockings, and other decorations in an average store. Another reason to make your own decorations is that was what was popular (and often necessary) to do back then. People were into making their own items back then even more so than they are now. You will also be able to customize your own looks and colors. These decorations do not need to be complicated. Here are some ideas for mid-century modern Christmas decorations from DIY you can make.

2. Opt for a unique Christmas tree.

Instead of picking out a fake green evergreen tree, look for one that is white, silver, pink, or teal aluminum. If it is sparse, that is even better! Trees that were smaller and sparser were all the rage back in the 1950s. If you can’t find an aluminum tree in the store, you can always cover your tree with lots of tinsel, or even spray paint a tree to coordinate with your theme better.

3. Choose designs you will be able to use all year round.

While choosing items to add to your home, it can be really fun to add items that are specific to Christmas and the holidays, but some items can add to your home all year round and be used for other holidays as well. For example, these vintage champagne glasses would be amazing to use for New Year’s Eve and any other special toast:

5. Go all out!

Let your theme extend into all areas of your celebration! Bake cookies for the holiday and sing carols by the piano. Give Mid Century Modern gifts and wrap your presents in fun retro wrapping paper. Make popcorn garlands and gather around the Christmas tree. Have fun with your theme and remember the simplicity and fun of the 1950s and 60s.
