Love the mid-century holiday decor look but don’t want to hunt down the real thing? These mid-century inspired holiday decor items are perfect.
I love mid-century decor all year long but mid-century Christmas decor has a special place in my heart. I have trouble resisting mercury glass ornaments. I love them so much! I have vintage red and turquoise mercury ornaments on my tree, vintage blue mercury glass in a milk glass bowl and I have new mercury glass ornaments on a Crate & Barrel ornament tree. My collection is always growing.
While my favorite mid-century holiday decor is the true vintage stuff, that’s not always easy to find and can be pricey. I love Mad Men but I swear it made mid-century decor double in price. However, it does also mean more reproductions are coming out. This is easier to find.
Be sure to check your locally owned stores because mercury glass especially has become popular. I’ve found some great little mercury glass candle holders at local stores. I love supporting the local stores. Also, check out your thrift stores if you want to real thing, that’s your best bet for more affordable decor. I also like to search Etsy for mercury glass ornaments and other vintage goodies.

If you don’t want to spend the time searching for vintage, or you can’t find the things locally, I’ve found some great reproductions and inspired products. This may also be a better option if you have kids, due to the lead concerns with some vintage items.
