Vintage Christmas ornaments have always held a special place in my heart. I have several of them that I’ve kept in storage over the years. I might have to bring them out again this year. Here’s a fun set of vintage ornaments from Anthropologie.
You can always find vintage ornaments at Etsy. When buying used ornaments, be sure to look carefully at the photo for any scratches or dings. You can also message the seller on Etsy to ask about the ornaments’ condition, too. I love this colorful boxful of Shiny Brights.
Your favorite Christmas ornaments don’t have to be relegated to the tree. I love to corral a group of them in bowls as an easy holiday decoration.

Wooden and paper ornaments are pretty too, and they hardly ever break like their glass counterparts. How can you not fall in love with these vintage-looking Advent houses from Anthro? They’re so adorable and colorful! I think the little girl in me is yearning to call these my own.
I used a lot of wood and paper on one of my Christmas trees from two years ago. I usually decorate my trees in some type of theme. I especially love the big paper snowflake ornaments from Crate and Barrel, and they’re inexpensive, which is a big bonus. Fold them up when Christmas is over and use them the following year. They’re pretty sturdy.
This is the lace version of the paper snowflake from Crate and Barrel.

The last two years I’ve been crushing on felted ornaments but have resisted the urge to buy any. Because if I get them, I need to buy enough to fill a tree and do I really need to spend money on that? Maybe I could get a 3-foot tree after Christmas when everything is on sale and stock up on a few felt ornaments. The grandkids could come over and decorate the small tree with me. It could be a new tradition. This cute trio of mice is from Pottery Barn.
A set of felted gingerbread men from Anthro would also be cute on a tree – or hung on a frosty branch tucked into a vase.

So far I haven’t started any Christmas decorating yet. I’m waiting until a little later this year. By now I typically have my tree up but I want to continue to enjoy fall and the Thanksgiving holiday. Even so, it’s wise to get ornaments and décor now, especially when shopping online to make sure it ships in time.
What are your plans for this year’s tree?
