Vintage Christmas Decor in the Kitchen

The Vintage Christmas Decor in the Kitchen was our big add-on to the holiday pretties this year. I didn't have a tree in here last year, but this year, it kind of took on a life all its own. Every piece of Christmas decor in this room is either thrifted, handed down, or leftover from somewhere else in the house...and most of it has a fun, vintage vibe!

I've always wanted a Christmas tree in the kitchen. We had one in our previous home, but it was kind of an afterthought. I've wanted a purposeful one...with ornaments that all have a kitchen/food theme going. When I stumbled onto some glass blown cupcake ornaments at a thrift store in Waco, I knew right away that this tree would come to fruition this season...along with the rest of the space. Check it all out below.

Aqua and White Christmas Tree

This Aqua and White Christmas Tree is kind of our tree that almost wasn't. But, y'all...it's kind of my favorite lil' Christmas tree in all of its petite glory. 

Budget-Friendly Aqua and White Christmas Tree with Loads of Vintage and Handmade Touches
We have a few Christmas trees around our home. I love having the two in the front windows; it was one of the things that drew me to this house. I was initially going to stop there. But, it has turned out that those two rooms aren't really the rooms we're in a lot (one is a formal dining and the other was a living room that we changed into my office...so, I'm really the only one in there). I went ahead and put a tree in our family room since that's kind of where we flop. But when people would come into this main living area, the first thing they'd say was, "So, will your main tree go in here?" And, I'd kind of hem and haw around and think..."I'm not fancy enough to have a main tree." Nonetheless, I dug this tree out of the garage, stuck it in a crock, and our aqua and white Christmas tree was born. Check it out below.

I made a travel tea bag caddy for all of my tea-loving family members for Christmas. These make great gifts...and I made one for myself, too. Because I just can't travel without my tea, y'all.
Travel Tea Bag Caddy | Sew this sweet little "tea wallet" to take your tea bags along every where you go.
Do you travel with tea? I have to. I feel like it's bringing a small comfort of home with me. I've made a friend or two on an airplane when I share one of my bags of tea...flight attendants are always happy to bring a hot cup of water for steeping a bag. This little travel tea bag caddy keeps me well stocked with my bags of Bigelow (and a couple of my sweeteners...since I use a kind that isn't always readily available). See how to make one of these below (your tea-loving friends will adore these!).
