How-to Create a Retro Christmas Scene

Do you have an assortment of ornaments from decades ago (such as the Shiny Brites) that you dare not hang on the tree in case they fall and break? Don't keep those beautiful baubles under wraps where no one can enjoy them. Take holiday guests on a trip down memory lane by displaying those treasured ornaments in a retro-style tablescape. Deck the dinner table in your finest linens, china and silverware. Then sprinkle artificial snow down the center to create a snowy scene. Place pretty ornaments inside assorted stemware. Miniature bottle-brush Christmas trees complete the reminiscent, wintry wonderland.
