Decorating for a Retro Christmas
Dreaming of a retro Christmas? Short of a time machine, good old retro Christmas decorations and Christmas ornaments may get you there! From the classic to the classic tacky, you'll find it here!
An Inexpensive Centerpiece with Gilt Paper Dollies, Tree Balls, Pine Cones and Sprays, Along with Nut-filled Gilt Paper Cones and Altar Candles in Red Holders. Gilt Snowflakes Outline It and Trim Goblets; Gilt Letters on Napkins Serve as Place Cards. (Found it in the Sunday, December 22, 1940, edition of the Albuquerque Journal and spent the better part of last night "PhotoShopping" it so you could see what it looked like!)
Bonus! Won't Burn The House Down! I have had one Christmas with actual fire-breathing candles on the tree... It sure is pretty, but you have to watch the tree like you would a new-born baby. I found the safer version here.
