Today, I’m sharing a simple vintage Christmas breakfast nook tour.
I wanted to make this area bright and cheery.
Previously, I had the shelves filled with my flow blue dishes.
You can see that tour below.
As I decorated this space for Christmas, it was clear I needed my favorite white chunky ironstone, and added them to the shelves.
I hung white ironstone Heritage White Johnson Brothers teacups on the hooks.
In the Pfalzgraff gravy bowl, I put a couple of Christmas trees.
Sometimes, ideas don’t come to me right away.
But after some thought, I remembered I had two large white Santa mugs and added those to the top shelf.
Taking a small wooden box, I placed some Pfalzgraff teacups and saucers inside.
I thought it was quite amazing how the wooden box fit perfectly on the shelf.
The platter with the green floral print was a new purchase from eBay.
It was $20, which was a good price.
On the white round Potter Barn table, I put a dough bowl.
Inside, I placed a Christmas tree.
This year, my investment was these farmhouse-styled Christmas trees from Michaels.
I put them throughout my home.
I loved the simple rustic tin, and the branches had a nice realistic look.
To the dough bowl, I added a blue and white creamer and sugar bowl on the left side.
And a beautiful antique Hollywood Regency candlestick.
On the tree, I laced a string of rusty bells.
And two battery-run Christmas lights.
They don’t last forever, so I only turn them on during our family gatherings.
Here is a video showing this Breakfast Nook decorated for Christmas.
In front of the large cutting board that I got from Goodwill, I placed a Victorian platter with two Victorian ladies.
This is another favorite in my collection.
Behind the dough bowl is our gorgeous oil lamp.
My husband uses it in the mornings when he gets ready for work.
He pulls it out and places it on our kitchen counter.
It shines the brightest light.
The story I learned about this oil lamp is pretty fascinating.
It was on a ship in the late 1800s and fell while on the ship, which is why it has a huge dent.
The grandfather of the person I bought it from kept it all these years.
So, having possession of it and knowing this story makes it pretty special.
I love the overall look of this Breakfast Nook.
It’s so pretty it keeps everyone in our household from putting their keys and other stuff on the table.
That’s a win!
I hope you enjoyed this simple vintage Christmas breakfast nook tour.
It’s amazing how simple Christmas touches can have the biggest impact.
I love that!
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas.
Whatever this Christmas looks for you, I hope it is all you wish it to be.
