Blue Christmas decorations are timeless and you don’t need to live by the coast to embrace it! In this post I’m sharing a look back at some Christmas decorating that I thought you might enjoy. We aren’t sure if we will make it up to our beach home this year for the holidays. Without our family traveling and coming in to visit it won’t be the same 😢. We remain hopeful that my husband and I can make a short visit up there. Of course I’ll be sharing if we do, but in the meantime here are some coastal looks that I just dug up from the archives!
The shot below was an old one from a magazine shoot. It features vintage blue bottlebrush trees as part of a coastal tablescape. I really keep it simple when setting a table at the beach!
Vintage Blue Christmas Decorations At Home
Back at the house I used some blue Christmas decorations in a vintage style holiday one year. My furniture hasn’t changed much, and things have just been moved around. It’s an easy way to create new looks seasonally by simply shopping your own home and adding colorful touches. In this case, shades of blue!
Festive blue mercury glass garlands were draped casually and echo the blue Mason jar.
More of those strands in pink and silver drip out of this light fixture turned bowl. If you’re a vintage lover (as I am) look for pieces with the original paint when out thrifting. I love this pair of vintage milking benches in a blue/green and still have them!
Sparkle and shimmer with pale blue vintage and antique pieces and foraged yard clippings.
This wreath was a yard sale find and while not perfect, it’s full of vintage charm!
I don’t go yard sale hunting as often as I used to. It’s a matter of training your eye though when you’re out and look for those special one of a kind pieces that speak to you. This one spoke to me with the little blue Christmas decorations, teeny presents and bells!
A vintage Tiffany blue tulle wreath with blush pink ornaments that I wish I hadn’t sold!
Notice the Tiffany box in the stocking below that is a fun play on decor!
If you carry your accent color across the rooms of your home you will have a more cohesive look. A touch of blue Christmas decorations with a snippet of blue and white ticking was all that it took here. Definitely thrifty and budget friendly!
On a beadboard shelf in the dining room the theme is white, silver, blue and green. Simple evergreen cuttings are displayed in a French enamelware pitcher.
In a corner there sits a yard sale cabinet that holds family china and silver. I removed the glass to give the French wire more oomph and painted the inside a blue grey. The boxwood wreath was a fresh one that year.
Gift Wrap – Vintage Blue Christmas Decorations
If you don’t have vintage wallpaper, use plain white wrapping paper or craft paper. Tear off some strips of fabric, embellish with a piece of greenery and a Christmas ball or pine cone.
White And Blue Christmas Bedroom
While I no longer have this wreath, tree and garland I enjoyed the simplicity of blue and white! Would blue Christmas decorating be a look that you might try sometime? I’d love to know in the comments below!
