Vintage White Joy to the World Christmas Tree

Vintage Joy to the World Tree

I am so excited today to be part of the Christmas Tree Hop being hosted by  Angela of Unexpected Elegance.

I decided to share a “non-traditional” tree today!

This year, the white tree is in Peanut’s room, it is her turn.

I wanted to make a tree that would make her happy – but had my “twist” on it as well.

And nothing is more my “twist” than to throw in some vintage elements mixed with new.

And nothing is more her than lots of fun color.

White Christmas Tree

I have collected a lot of vintage glass ornaments over the years, but I have never done a whole tree in them.

The globes are made from stress balls with an ornament hangers looped in.

I had some silver foil reflectors that I filled with map cutouts with glitter details added.

This one highlights some of our favorite places to visit.

The garland is made from ribbon with vintage word game letters.

I love the mix of the different shapes, colors and sizes.

Finding Home Vintage White Tree

I wasn’t sure if I was going to have enough letter so get this far into the song and I was so pleased when I did.

I added a few varieties of “Joy” ornaments as well.

On the cabinet behind, I grouped a few globes and her collections of items her Dad has brought back for her from his trips throughout the world.

  1. Love, love, love the white tree! So much that I bought one to put up this year. Found some red lights on a white strand. Now all I need is the time to do it. I love your vintage ornaments. I walked into a thrift shop in a tiny Texas town and found 3 boxes of shiny brite ornaments for 25 cents each, they were $15 a box at the antique store! Illove all the colors and your garland and everything about your tree, especially the red bell ornament. JOY TO THE WORLD!

  2. What a fun colorful tree to have in her room!! I love it. I have a traditional tree. Last year a mish mash of store bought and home made ornaments. This year, we just dug thru and used mostly store bought and only a few homemade and tried to stick with the gold, cream/white and red theme. My girl has a little purple tree in her room and my boy has a small tree in his room this year using some of those small home made ornaments.

  3. Oh Laura…..this is beautiful. I love the colors and against the white with the vintage ornaments (which you could totally ship boxes my way)! Thank you so much for incredibly inspiring me today!

    Have a wonderful day rock star!

  4. Laura that is just fantastic!! It has such a glam look to it and the vintage elements add a fun twist. I love that you blended your style with your daughter’s and got this beautiful result. So thrilled to be apart of the Hop with you! 🙂

  5. Laura, I love how it came out. I especially love the garland. My girls would be super excited to have a tree in their room like this…you have a lucky daughter! 😉
    Thanks for all your help with this and patience…it takes a village.

  6. I have just one – traditional – and always change the theme every year. This year will be, hopefully, burlap and lace and few old gold accents. (hopefully because I’m not sure how lace will hang on the tree…
    I love all details in yours, specially the globe balls… I’d never seen so I’m in awe.
    Great Job, Mum!

  7. And heaven and nature sang aloud when they saw this tree!!!….Beautiful, creative tree Laura!…
    I have about 13 trees…the larger trees are the sentimental ones..with ornaments collected over many, many years!
    I so love Christmas….brings so much joy to my heart!
