With just a few days left until Christmas, I’m sure most of you already have your home decorated with lots of festive fun decor. When I imagine decorations for this time of year, I always think of my Grandmother’s house when I was growing up. I spent every Christmas Eve and Christmas morning there for years and years, and she had the same decorations every year.

My Grandmother’s decor was likely all purchased around 1955, because it was just like all of this lovely atomic Christmas gear I’ve featured today! She had it all- the colorful glass ornaments, elf figurines with little doll faces, and that ceramic tree!

She had a red tree topper exactly like this one.

I definitely remember lots of reindeer decor. It seems the reindeer have been put on the back-burner in more recent years, but in the atomic age they were everywhere!

I just love vintage Christmas decor! It’s so cheerful and sweet, and it reminds me of my childhood. Most of my Grandmother’s beautiful collection has disappeared or broken, but I plan on creating my own collection with the help of Etsy and vintage shops.
