Hello friends! If you follow me on instagram, you probably already know that I already started decorating for Christmas. This year my family will be visiting us for the holidays, so it is important that tI do not stress myself out and wait last minute to prepare for their arrival. I decided that Christmas is best served and decorated in the black room, so that is the room we set up shop in. Since the room is dark and has a vintage eclectic feel to it, it would only be appropriate to create the same vibe for Christmas…but on a budget. For this campaign, I purchased vintage looking Christmas decor from Cost Plus World Market and used items that I already owned. I also am sharing a fun and simple DIY Christmas terrarium idea that you can recreate in less than 5 minutes!
When it comes to pillows, Cost Plus World Market has it all. I really wanted more of retro-vintage vibe in this space, but it is hard to find retro themed Christmas decor. So, in order for me add lush colors that the retro era produced, I incorporated teal and mint into the space. I was able to find a beautiful bluish-teal colored pillow with an art deco inspired pattern. Guys, it is beyond gorgeous and has a nice velvet silk feel to it. I paired this pillow with a white fur pillow from Cost Plus World Market to add a bit of coziness.
I really wanted to create something whimsy and fun that matched the vibe I was going for, so I created some fun, easy-to-make Christmas Terrarium. When it comes to seasonal decor, simple DIY’s is what I love most. To keep it simple and as an ode to the retro era, I decided to create a Terrarium using bottle brush Christmas trees in varying sizes and colors. I purchased everything for this DIY from Cost Plus World Market, except for my cloche.

Steps to Create a Christmas Terrarium
- Gather materials.
- Place fake snow in base (vase, cake stand, etc…)
- Pat it down and spread it out or if placing it in a vase, shake it to level it out.
- Insert trees into fake snow.
- Style and enjoy
I mean like, come on! How gorgeous is this terrarium? So gorgeous! I love how the terrarium complements all the stuff that is going on. To add a touch of pink to my decor, I added a soft pink mercury glass candle holder from Cost Plus World Market to the space and topped it off with a mint colored candle (also from Cost Plus World Market).
If you thought my terrarium was all that and you want more Christmas DIY ideas (and terrarium), check out this video from Brandi Milloy. She has some whimsy ideas that will definitely get you into the holiday spirit.
Not only did I purchase the soft pink candle holder but I had to also buy the pearly-mint candle holder as well. It matched so well with my vision for this space and looks amazing next to the darker elements in the room.
I am not done yet, in fact, I am saving my favorite pieces to incorporate that throwback look for last. When I was laying out idea board for this space, I came across some beautiful sparkly silver garland leaves. GUYS, I am not sure if you can tell in the picture, but that garland is all that and so much more! My pictures do not give it justice!!!! It is BEYOND gorgeous! I wrapped it around my tree to add a bit of sparkle and elegance.
While I was shopping at my local Cost Plus World Market over here in Lubbock, I came across this beaded Christmas ornament. Although it is not retro (at first glance), it did give off a vintage old hollywood, glamorous look and since I like the unexpected, I thought it would add a nice touch to the Vintage Eclectic Christmas theme that I was going for.
