Colorful Carnival Glass Punch Bowls for Whimsical Holiday Entertaining

Are you planning on having a party this year during the holidays? Consider getting one of these colorful vintage carnival glass punch bowls for entertaining! They come in all kinds of colors that would be perfect for any theme.

Not only would this iridescent glass punch bowl work for the holidays, but for future events as well. You can put all kinds of different fun colored drinks in it!

For the holidays this year, I think that this iridescent carnival glass punch bowl is perfect. The gold shimmering color would look magical this year for Christmas or New Year's! You could even use this and make your own sangria.

I am amazed with all the colors that shine through this green 'Wreath of Roses' punch bowl. The gold painted leaves are really festive on the dark green glass. The roses are a very elegant touch.

Instead of sticking with traditional Christmas colors, you can do something a little different. The iridescent blue glass punch bowl is great for wintertime. There are plenty of matching glasses so you can have a party!

This is obviously great for the holidays. You can use this eggnog punch bowl for a festive holiday party in your home, or for the family's Christmas celebrations. The rose patterns underneath the glasses are very adorable.

Originally I thought this was black, which would be fine! It's really easy to see the beautiful iridescent colors on this purple carnival punch bowl. There are 12 different glasses that would be awesome to have for your holiday get-together.

This must be my favorite vintage carnival glass punch bowl. The colors are really beautiful! Even for fall, this would be a great decorative item. There are no glasses that come with it, but the bowl itself is really amazing.

These are fun and beautiful carnival glass punch bowls that are wonderful for hosting. Which color would you want to have for your holiday party? Keep in mind, you can use these for events such as birthdays, weddings, and other holidays! Comment below and let me know!

Darling and Useful Retro-Themed Wax Fragrance Warmers

I couldn't even tell these were fragrance warmers originally. They look like cute little figurines that you can scatter throughout your home. Since the holidays are coming up, I always try to find clever ways of decorating the house. These are not only adorable, but they serve a wonderful purpose of making your home smell however you would like. Come take a look at Scentsational's Retro collection fragrance warmers on Amazon. They're fun and a great set to have for all lovers of the "good ol' days."

It's becoming harder and harder to find gas stations that still look like this vintage gas pump nowadays. This piece instantly brings me back to riding in my car with family for Sunday joy rides. I also thought it was entertaining that this gas station could be "burning off" fumes such as "Holiday Forest", "Home Sweet Home", or "Island Orchid."

Speaking of joy rides, this vintage Ford woody vehicle definitely reminds me of California back in the day. I remember my parents talking about how they always wanted to get one of those for summer fun. This is an awesome fragrance warmer for when it does start to get nice and hot in the year. The figure almost looks like a combination of an old Slug Bug and the Woody!

I'm so happy about this retro diner fragrance warmer! Diners are an American classic. Even though we still have diners around, they aren't the same as they used to be. Even the food isn't as fantastic as diners were 40 years ago! Don't you agree?

I've swooned over my love of vintage radios before. It reminds me of simpler times with my family. Not only will I have comforting memories, but I'm excited to get some holiday oils to accompany this fragrance warmer.

Make sure to get some groovy scents while using this jukebox fragrance warmer. Don't you wish that we used jukeboxes more often in bars and restaurants? Now you can remember those times by putting one of these fragrance warmers in the room. Instead of amazing music, it'll be amazing scents coming from it!

The last item in the retro collection is the vintage camper fragrance warmer. I only went camping in one of these a few times with friends. The times that I did go were really fun - nothing like camping in the current day!

All of these retro fragrance warmers by Scentsationals bring back memories. You can place them throughout the house to make your home smell however you wish. Make sure to comment below and let me know what you think!

New Retro Diamonds Dresses from Sourpuss

It's getting so cold that I started to think about going to Las Vegas. These dresses from Sourpuss remind me of the casino! I love the retro diamond look. I think it's unique and I want it to be trendy again!

This Sourpuss retro red diamonds dress is a show stopper. Imagine all the people who are going to admire you from a distance! I love how vibrant it is! It's a great option for this time of year.

This Sourpuss hostess black and red dress would be fun to wear with a little cardigan this fall. It's still very bright and entertaining.

Don't you just think of Vegas when you see these dresses from Soupuss? They're fun, quirky, and totally retro! Comment below and let me know what your favorite vintage fashion trends were!

Tempted by Antique Tiffin Candlesticks

Last night was actually a little chilly, so I had the urge to light a fire! I realized that might actually make my house too hot though. Instead, I compromised and lit a bunch of candles. They gave off the perfect amount of heat.

Tiffin candlesticks are one of my favorite vintage brands. This company was in business for almost 100 years, but sadly closed in the mid 1980's. Their candle holders come in all kinds of funky and wonderful shapes. Not only that, but the fun and bright colors really bring these to life. Come check out the antique Tiffin candlesticks on eBay and Etsy!

I thoroughly enjoy the rusty color of these amber glass Tiffin candlesticks. The warm hues emitted are going to be great for fall.

This would be so interesting to use for summertime. The antique argonaut green candlesticks are so bright! The fish shape might be fun to use at a lake house or poolside.

I fell in love with these gorgeous vintage satin blue glass candle sticks. They almost match my kitchen, but I'm sure I could get away with putting these in another room.

This Tiffin King's crown cranberry candlestick is incredibly elegant. This would be a wonderful addition for above the fireplace or as a centerpiece for your dining table.

These actually glow in the dark! It would be so much fun to have this vintage Tiffin glass console set during a Halloween party. That would create an ominous atmosphere.

Speaking of Halloween, these black antique Tiffin candlesticks are another awesome option. Lighting red or black candles will get everyone in the Halloween spirit!

They claim that this is pink, but this retro Tiffin dolphin candlestick looks flesh color to me. I definitely I prefer this over the bright green ones above.

Now your candles can be displayed in a vintage Tiffin candlestick holder all year round. Even though it's clear, it still has a groovy shape!

These Tiffin twilight candlesticks would be fun for Easter! I like how they sit lower than the rest, because that will add more dimension to your candle display!

As you can see, Tiffin candlesticks come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors! I'm most amazed by the color selection. Glow in the dark candlesticks that are made out of glass are hard to find! I wish this brand was still around, but you can easily find Tiffin candlesticks on eBay or Etsy! Which one is your favorite? Tell me below!

Charming and Whimsical Figgjo Flint Dishes from Norway

I am really in love with colorful retro items as you all can probably tell! I didn't even know about this particular brand until a few days ago. I'm sad that it took this long to be aware of their existence! A lot of the Figgjo Flint retro dishes are great for summer. There are all kinds of designs ranging from vibrant, floral, to whimsical illustrations of Norwegian life! These are really charming and fun - let's take a look!

I like the little characters sitting back to back on this Turi sugar bowl. It claims it can be used as a mug, but since it doesn't have a handle I wouldn't risk it.

Look at how funky this Figgjo Flint leaf design plate is! All the colors are awesome. The sketchy shapes that make up the illustration are super cool.

I think you would be surprised at how much these two Figgjo Flint skillet pans might come in handy. They are apparently great to use on the stove and in the oven. Plus, the floral design is really groovy.

These retro Figgjo Flint salt and pepper shakers are a fun way to decorate your table, especially if you've been to Oslo. You can see the Oslo City Hall in the background of these shakers - including the waterfront.

I don't think I would ever use these antique egg cups, but I love the design. The colors are great for summertime and are definitely old school.

Can't you see drinking frosty cold milk from these Figgjo Flint Turi design Daisy milk cups? These are really rare and pretty!

In all honesty, I would normally avoid dishes that are olive in color. I surprisingly like this vintage ceramic pitcher. It's really earthy and great for fall and spring. I love the little scene being shown!

The deep dark reds and browns are really cool on this Morocco Figgjo lidded bowl. Is it just me or does the lid have a hypnotic effect?

If you're always in your kitchen, then this Flint Figgjo Turi Designs large ceramic shaker would be an awesome tool! Plus she's really bright and cute!

All of these playful dishes are fun for everyone! I'm so glad I ran into Figgjo flint retro dishes on Etsy. What are your thoughts on these dishes? Would you ever use them? Comment down below!

Stunning Spanish Garden Dishes from Midwinter

I have had quite a few gatherings at my place this summer and each time I felt like I was close to running out of dishes. Can you believe it? The other problem I am having is finding dishes that match my current teal decor. I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when I found these Spanish Garden dishes by Midwinter! Not only are the colors stellar, but I love the brand. These are truly a classic. Come take a look at this gorgeous set.

This Midwinter porcelain milk jug is great for my summertime and fall tea parties!

I think I'm accidentally creating a tea party scene in my head. I might as well have this vintage Spanish Garden trio handy for when the ladies come over. The flower embellishments are so serene!

Next time I have a party to go to, I would love to show off my cooking in this Midwinter casserole dish. It's very elegant and perfect for a gathering at any time of year.

These vintage bowls could be used for salad, pasta, or a very elaborate dessert.

The vintage Spanish Garden dinner plate is a great size and is beautifully decorated. It would be fabulous to serve dinner for my final summer party on these!

Clearly I would be using this retro mod coffee pot to make tea. I am already planning on using this to pour tea throughout the day at my desk.

Lastly, you can use these Midwinter Spanish Garden cups and saucers for tea or coffee. Imagine sipping from these on a warm morning amid your own garden!

I think these are great for all year around, especially spring and summer time. The colors are great for winter too. What do you think of this gorgeous set? Comment below!
