Holiday Decorating Style Spotlight: Victorian Christmas

Many of our beloved holiday traditions began in the Victorian Era—decorating the Christmas tree, giving gifts, sending Christmas cards, and even hanging stockings. Helped along by England’s royal family, these traditions were enhanced with intricate designs that sparkled and shone. The traditional holiday palette originates from this era as well: red, green, gold, silver, and white.

To decorate your own home in the luxurious Victorian Christmas style, string garland through a bannister, around a doorway, or across the mantel. Pull in a pop of traditional red with poinsettia wreaths and velvet ribbons, and add a shimmer with glass ornaments and glittering accents.

Let Touch of Class® help you bedeck your home in the magnificent opulence of a Victorian Christmas! Here are a few items to get you started:

Welcome guests with vintage vibes and bold reds. Hang a wreath bursting with red berries on the door and center a vase overflowing with greenery and ribbons on a console table. Frame the centerpiece with lighted lanterns and woodland animal figurines for a homey touch. Finally, hang a wall tapestry alight with fiber optics and depicting a lovely winter cottage to finish the look with timeless flair.

Winter Botanicals Holiday Decorating Lifestyle

A blazing fire in the hearth highlights the surrounding greenery and metallic glimmers. Winter Frost blankets silver and mint green baubles resting among pine cones and snow-flocked faux pine boughs for a refreshing dash of wintry atmosphere. LED candles sitting in the candelabra atop the mantel emit a soft glow. Ivory Shama Candles impart the neutrals of an icy palette while the golden Holiday Shimmer Candles flicker with mesmerizing sparkles.

Encourage the winter forest growing around your fireplace with gleaming tree figurines. Add an element of movement with the Glitter Swirl LED Christmas Tree. When neutral stockings with metallic embellishments hang from the Elegant Gift Stocking Holders, holiday enchantment begins to descend upon your room.

Resting gracefully near the fireplace, the Christmas tree enhances the spellbinding display. Use a skirt that matches the stockings, complete with shimmering ribbons and colors collected from a Winter Garden. Tie into the silver and gold hues on the mantel with the You’ve Gotta Have It Ornaments. Hovering at the tip of the tree, the Anna Winter Angel tops off the decorations with feathery wings and a gown of white and silver.

Want to add a flourish to this otherworldly scene? Consider a bold red reminiscent of cardinals, holly berries, and Santa Claus. Imbue your decor with the rustic charm of the Cardinal Decorative Lighted Water Lantern or brighten the room through the night with the Cardinal LED Nightlight. Captivate your guests further with Love, Joy, Hope, ivory tones, and holly motifs.

Draped in buffalo plaid linens, your table will beckon everyone to gather ‘round for home-cooked dishes. For a festive accent, select reindeer napkin rings and a faux greenery centerpiece.

The Christmas tree:
A popular holiday song celebrates the loveliness of the Christmas tree’s branches, but you can give some decorating love to the base of the tree too. A buffalo plaid tree skirt looks wonderfully cozy encircling the foot of the tree. Decorate with pine cones, berry garland, and ornaments depicting deer or cardinals. Top the tree with a simple country star or a rustic angel embellished with faux fur.

Benches, chairs, and sofas:
Bare furnishings can seem chilly in the winter, so make them snuggle-ready with buffalo plaid throws and pillows. You can even layer the pillows atop your bed and drape a folded throw across the foot.
