When I first discovered EBTH, I just about lost my mind because I was still laid up on the couch nursing my broken leg and couldn’t physically attend any local estate sales. EBTH satisfied my estate sale cravings in a big way by making it possible for me to shop while elevating and icing my leg. Ever since I’ve been hooked! Now that it’s officially the holiday season, I partnered with EBTH to share how I’ve curated an eclectic holiday vibe in my home this year (and my low-stress entertaining tips for Christmas Day).
If I had to offer you just one holiday tip, it would be this: set up a casual, grab-and-go type station on your dining table for guests. I’m a hostess who prefers to spend time interacting with her guests instead of sequestered to the kitchen, so I take a few short cuts. Rather than mixing individual cocktails, I offer a punch. I will also lay out platters of pastries so people can nibble as they feel like it. Instead of a sit down meal, my dining table is home to a gorgeous spread of pastries, punch, and whatever else my guests need to feel right at home… and all served up in some really amazing vintage serveware pieces.
As most of you know by now, #mytinybungalow is comprised of a mix of new and old, vintage and store-bought. Throughout my evolution of homeownership, as well as after Sean moved in, we’ve really defined the vibe of the house as such. Now that it’s the holiday season, I can’t help but think up more ways to include vintage and antique pieces into my Christmas decor. The easiest way, of course, is to use vintage ornaments. I’m a big fan of old Shiny Bright ornaments for so many reasons: the incredible, graphic packaging, the soft tones of the textured glass, and the variety. There are so many ornament options on EBTH that I ended up bidding on quite a few! Ultimately I fell in love with a listing for 6 (!) boxes of these ivory and silver glass balls.
While I was perusing EBTH for holiday decor, I happened upon the records section and knew immediately that we needed to pick up some holiday vinyl! Sean and I both love to listen to records whenever possible, but there’s something especially lovely about decorating the tree and listening to classic carols on vinyl.
And don’t forget the wreath! I scored this incredible brass wreath that appears to be handmade and I don’t think I can ever part with it! There’s so much detail to it and I love that it’s sort of tiny, just like my house. It’s the perfect statement piece for my black front door, don’t you think?
And lastly, EBTH has some really incredible, one-of-a-kind gift ideas, too! Sean’s family is very ‘salty’ so to speak, so I’m absolutely thrilled to give this decanter to his father this Christmas.
