How to Organize a Vintage Christmas
We all enjoy spending time preparing Christmas season, a special time to bring family together. It's time for cards, decorations, food recipes and, of course, kids!
They also treasure those festivities aiming to help making stuff of their own. Agitated and excited most of the time, they upset people around being important to keep them busy and entertained.
Preparing all in advance it's necessary to reach our goals and usually we begin to organize things sometime before.
The idea about choosing a theme for Christmas decorations and activities occurred to me and I immediately thought about vintage ephemera.
I searched the Web for free vintage graphics to download not only for decorations and food, but also kid related activities to amuse and occupy them, cutting and colouring, biding and gluing or just watching movies.
