Hola Amigos and Amigas! Peanut the novelty elf here, ready to talk to you about a subject near and dear to my own heart… Victorian décor! See, this little elf hails from the great city of Buffalo, a sensational relic of these forgotten times. Bounding with Victorian era architecture, a well persevered history and a culture that likes to celebrate it, Buffalo truly is a jewel in the rough! And no less amazing are these wonderful décor ideas!
It’s no secret that a Victorian theme is a very popular way to incorporate a touch of classic antique into one’s wedding. But what you may not know is that Christmas Central is your ultimate resource for finding you perfect Victorian decorations! When planning a Victorian themed wedding it is best to stray away from stark white heavily beaded décor one might find in bridal boutique and lean toward more antiqued options along the lines of champagne and lace. Additionally be sure to include many floral elements, pastel colors and pearl decorations as these are sure fire Victorian classics.
Beyond special occasions, this dazzling ornamental theme can be enjoyed in the home as well. Continuing on the rich theme of flowers and jewels we add gilded bird cages and ornate mirrors. Add finishing touches with cherub imagery and damask patterns. This stylish trend can even be continued to the beauty of the outdoors with elaborate birdhouses and white wicker furniture perfect for your very own Victorian themed garden party!
Known for copious florals, pastels and pearls, the Victorian theme may strike you as very feminine. However here at Christmas Central we have some great ideas to incorporate this artful period into your home without losing that strong masculine touch. Beyond the façade of flowers and pearls, Victorian furniture was made of hard mahogany, accented with tones of rich burgundy and heavy gold in striking contrast to white washed walls. Also, you can try to add a sterner feel to your Victorian den with some Roman style busts or clawed footed furniture.
No matter who you are, the Victorian trend can bring an air of sophistication and class to your atmosphere. So click on down to Christmas Central and come embellish your life with some antique beauty from a forgotten age! And stay magical!
