My Favorite Christmas Vignettes

Christmas is just one week away! Although I’ve been busy decorating and shopping, I never forget the true meaning of Christmas and the celebration of Christ’s birth … God’s greatest gift to the world! I like to think the creative expression of decorating is a reflection of God’s creative nature. After all, if we’re made in God’s image and God is creative, it follows that each one of us is creative in some way, shape or form. In celebration of that creativity, I’m sharing some of my favorite Christmas vignettes with you .

DIY Home Decor at Christmas.

I’ve been collecting these ornaments for years. My flocked Christmas tree is in the background with the lights twinkling brightly.

I’m not going to want to put these back in a box once Christmas is over.

A few vintage ornaments and a mini Christmas tree tucked in a bowl complete the Christmas vignette.

Vintage black mirror with boxwood wreath. Simple Christmas decor and a collection of holiday vignettes.Coincidentally, this vintage black mirror was found at a Christmas market last year. I hung a little boxwood wreath on it with peppermint stripe ribbon. The mirror reflects the mason jar candles lining the steps in my old farmhouse.


DIY Home Decor. Christmas bowl filled with vintage glass ornaments.Last year I bought this set of red and white nesting bowls to use for Christmas decorating.

  1. Jennifer – I love your flipboard mag, but you included one of my images that was posted on G+ by someone else (as their own work). It is the red and white Christmas porch. I would appreciate it if you could change the source to me. Thanks!


  2. So much inspiration here Jennifer! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home decorated for the holidays. I really enjoy seeing everything you create. Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas! Pamela

  4. Your vignettes are just beautiful, Jennifer! I had forgotten that I had some vintage pink ornaments in the attic that I had in my booth last year that didn’t sell. I meant to use them this year, but at this point I will just pass on them until next year. I think just even using them in a wood tote or tureen would be a nice simple touch.

  5. Hi Jennifer. I love your Christmas vignettes. I have a vintage frame similar to your black mirror that I got from my grandmother. I made it into a chalkboard. Love your style!
