While on a weekly grocery run, we stopped to admire the Walmart Christmas decor selection, particularly the retailer's classic-styled picks. What's old is new again, so let's take a sleigh ride down Memory Lane.
We don't need to tell you that Christmas decoration trends are cyclical (we see you, pink ceramic trees), but it gave our hearts the warm and fuzzies knowing that retro-inspired buys are particularly eye-catching. We're suckers for nostalgia, especially around the holidays. (Or should we say, "newstalgia"?)
While yes, we've been saying "kowabunga" to the beach-inspired Coastal Christmas fad and we've given the green light to neutral Christmas decor, we're never one to pass up cute tchotchkes from Christmases past. Ready for a quick step back in time?

How to style vintage Christmas decor
According to Real Homes staff writer Eve Smallman, who has followed, admired, and covered the "newstaglia" trend, says there are a few ways to achieve the vintage look at home. Mix bold, contrasting hues, cluster pieces together, and don't be afraid to throw treasured DIY projects into the mix.
Eve is a staff writer at Real Homes, where she brings readers on-trend news pieces, product round-ups, and small space inspiration. She lives in a rented Victorian terraced house, and enjoys making it shine with pieces that are both beautiful and practical. When she's not writing, she's walking around local beauty spots, nestling into a book, or diving into a cheeseboard
