Pam's Holiday Home Tour Part 2 - The Dining Room

Are you wondering what to do with all the Shiny Brites you inherited from your mom or grandma? Or Aunt Martha's light-up ceramic Christmas tree? Or all the vintage Christmas decor you accumulate from the thrift stores?

Decorating with vintage Shiny Brite Christmas decorations along with other vintage holiday decor


I don't know about you, but I never walked by a vintage piece of Christmas decor at the thrift store that didn't jump into my cart! And I also have a boatload of vintage Christmas decor from my mom's house.

In my home, the dining room is the place that I like to display the majority of the vintage Christmas decor. It seems to make more of an impact when grouped together.

But you could designate any room in your home as THE place for vintage Christmas. Or all the rooms.

I'm going to warn you up front, this is a photo rich post, so not a lot of compelling commentary.

But plenty of Christmas eye candy.

OK, just breaking in here to say this is the ceramic tree that I got at the thrift store in October. I told you I'd put it to good use.

And here's where I put my Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer vintage sheet music that I had made into a free printable for you.

OK, I'm back to shutting up now. Carry on.

  2. Love the dining table centerpiece. You have a package on the way and Joe wanted to send you pine cones. So glad I talked him out of it. I see you have plenty. xo, Olive

  3. Everything looks beautiful. The ceramic tree is very cute. And you got the tinsel on the big tree juuust perfect--3 strands per branch. Looks just like icicles!

  4. Love it, Pam! The candy canes look so great in the vases...and I found some tinsel this week, inspired by you!

  5. I love it all Pam! The little fence around the bottom of the tree is so cute and your great ceramic tree find is perfect there with the sheet music. Love it all. Cracked up on the 'carry on' bit too. :)

  6. We have the same ornaments! I came over from your comment left on my glass balls post. I have been following along as you decorate, but had not seen the house tour. Love everything and have duplicates of most, though I did sell off all my Gurley candles and Empire plastic figures. I had to pare down the collection.

  7. I love all your sweet vintage pieces. Did you make your tree or did someone make it for you? I remember those from years ago. I have never seen those little deer in those particular poses. They are just darling. Everything looks great- xo Diana

  8. Pam, your Christmas tree is so beautiful! I especially love the pine cones and ornaments on the table!

  9. It looks charming. We still had the ceramic tree my uncle made in the '70s and gave to my mom. My daughter took it to her apartment this year. All her grad school friends thought it was cool.

  10. This is a great post with lots of things I would have in my house as well!I am really into the little vintage deer now and I always like the little Santas but I have never seen one with a sled and I REALLY love him! I also like the simplicity of just posting the pictures. I actually have been stressing about getting my Christmas blogs up in time so maybe I will follow suit with a simple photo tour like this. Thanks for letting us take a look! Merry Christmas!

  11. I love vintage but have never been able to find that much vintage Christmas stuff around here. I love your fun decor. The table and tree look so fun, Pam.

  12. I recall those trees from the seventies or eighties. (Memory going just a little!) My aunt, who bought bisque pieces (I think that's what they were called) and decorated them and fired them at home made some of the trees. She filled the lights in later, into pre made holes.
    The tree and the tinsel are wonderful. Like through a waterfall, or a curtain to draw aside and reveal Christmas.

  13. Your decorations are lovely. I love the ceramic Christmas tree and the way you've displayed it on the silver stand.

  14. Love the vintage ornaments on your tree! Hope you get something checked off your list, Laura

  15. Looking good! I love your centerpiece with the silver bowl filled with pincones and vintage ornaments. And don't even get me started on the sweet deer - so cute. Your ceramic tree looks amazing placed on top of the silver and the santa was a wonderful touch.

  16. I might just need to find an excuse to find a platter to set my ceramic tree onto. I love the height that it gives your tree. Great displays, Pam.

  17. I'm wishing I could get my ceramic tree back from my daughter. At least I'd have a lighted tree up this year!

    Your tinselling skills are top notch. Not too much to take away from the beauty of your fabulous China cabinet! I have many of the same vintage ornaments. Love it!

  21. Pam I love your dining room, it's filled with so many little touches that make it cozy. I especially like your ceramic Christmas tree with the tiny lights. Also, I wish I could have a big tree in our dining room!

  25. Love all of the vintage ornaments. I happen to have one of those ceramic trees too. From my mother-in-law. It was her mothers.

  26. Ooooh, I used to have a ceramic tree like this, only it was white with red lights. I love this green one with the colored lights. I eventually gave mine away with all the moving, and now I wish I had it. Your lantern is perfect for the Christmas season.
