nostaglia christmas

Christmas is undoubtedly all about nostalgia; from tear jerking John Lewis adverts to the obligatory White Christmas viewing – we can’t get enough! This year, a big trend in decorations is retro and vintage inspired ornaments and baubles with a slightly kitsch feel. They will instantly remind you of the one or two glass creations that have miraculously survived every year, passed down from your grandparents generation by ridiculous amounts of bubble wrap.  The interesting looking objects/animals/figurines from Christmas past, will usually come in an array of deep jewel colours, with indulgently ornate paintwork. It’s all about the over-the-top traditional Christmas and we love it!
