Bright and modern Christmas decor has definitely been a favorite in our house this year. When Blush and Whim sent over this colorful Christmas table, I was immediately drawn to it – and not just because they used my favorite word “merrymaking.” The theme of mod and merry together is vibrant, festive, and hits a perfect note this holiday season.
They’ve thought up so many colorfully fun details to incorporate in decking your own mantel and dressing your tables. In addition to the great inspirational ideas, you can follow my links and find simple products to recreate the vintage and bright look at home. There’s even a printable gift tag included to wrap your gifts in merrymaking style.
The show stopping nature of this ornament tree is such a great idea for a mantel still in need of holiday decor. Inspired by 70’s Christmas decor – nostalgic of going to grandma’s for the holidays as a child. The vintage looking ornaments are hung from an old screen or window frame. Hang the ornaments in lines to mimic the shape of a tree.
**Tip: start from the top and work your way down! Stack up the mantel with pretty wrapped presents to complete the look.
For a table set in mod merry charm, try color block painting the silverware. Then add vintage ornaments inside vases and cake stands to spread around. Little white trees are added to this old fashioned look by gently gluing bright miniature ornaments around them as well.
Finish off the look by wrapping presents with shimmery ribbons and loads of bright details. For unique gift toppers gather small critters (from the store or the kid’s toy box) and attach to clothes pins in colors and textures of your choice! Don’t forget a good dose of glitter to make the look complete. Use this printable gift tag to ensure your guests get your wishes for a season filled with merry making!
