Add Some Mid Century Modern to Your Holiday
Posted on December 01 2017
If whiskey cocktails and crackling records put you in a celebratory mood, a Mid Century Modern theme will have you rocking around the holiday clock. Slide into some Mad Men inspired attire, or at least, put on your best thrift-shop outfit, like a snazzy necktie or A-shaped skirt. Then brush up on your bar-tending guide, and start pouring the drinks!
Nothing connects like an old-school greeting card, so get out the address book! Mod stationary is bold and bright, with playful graphics and a color palette that breaks from tradition. Enjoy the feel of fresh paper, as you pen your personal message, capped with a stylish signature.
As the turntable spins tunes of holiday cheer, deck the halls with some throw-back creations of your own, harking to the crafts-craze of an earlier time, when resourceful homemakers could make almost anything from scratch. Knit a stocking by the chimney, or weave a wreath for the door. Make some space-age shaped ornaments, to accentuate your aluminum tree. Next, dip into some cookbooks for retro recipes!
Make a naughty-and-nice list for the presents you plan to give. Then, choose a modern-themed wrapping paper, so your gifts can stand out.
The holidays are a reminder to do a little last-minute redecorating, before the guests arrive. Even small touches can make a difference, like adding vintage coasters to the coffee table. Place a Modern motif here and there, and let the party begin!
