Dreaming of a Vintage Christmas........tree.


Paulette Goddard, a perfect Hollywood Christmas

Last year we purchased a real Christmas tree and it was gorgeous, but my heart has always been set on a fake one. Preferably a vintage 1950's or 1960's tree and any color would suffice silver, pink, light blue, even white. I have been searching all year but alas still no vintage tree has found its way home with yours truly. There have been a few hopefuls over the years, but a typical dark green tree will not do for our retro home.

A store down the road from us advertised white, pink, red, blue, and even a frightful lime green color Christmas trees. Size wise I am completely open as long as the overall look is vintage inspired, tiny like this one below or massive like Paulette's. Hopefully one of them will tickle my fancy, otherwise we will be treeless this year left to dream about the vintage one I will find someday (see how determined I am) and what it will look like all decorated then.

  1. The tree is the irritation of my life, having moved here, all I want is a silver vintage looking tree. I must try and get one tomorrow.
    I love this post, it's spurred me on :-) xx

  2. We're planning on putting up our 1950s silver tree in a day or two, and I am so excited. I love it and was so happy when I finally found an affordable vintage tree. Keep searching--the right one will turn up!

  3. My mother took back her mother's aluminum tree when I moved away, lol. =D
    I had to settle for a little 4' silver prelit one that we found at Big Lots a few years ago. We 'fancy' it up to look vintage though. =)

    Good Luck on the search! LPM

  6. It will turn up, it will turn up. Just keep putting it out there! I am still, always hopeful that a pink or silver tree will come my way, and it will some day. As a child when we lived in Dallas we had a pink house, pink roses, and pink lights on the Christmas tree. I will re-create that tree someday. You'll hear me stomping for joy once I find it!

  13. I saw small, colorful christmas trees at walmart. They had it in white, purple,pink and I cant remember what other colors they had. I think that was last year though.
    Anyway, good luck. I hope you find the perfect tree.

  14. I saw some metallic pink, green and silver ones at Big Lots. They were vintage-esque. I also saw a large silver one at Hobby Lobby. If you can check those spots. Good Luck!
