Vintage Christmas in the Breakfast Room

Christmas Greetings!  Is your home decorated for Christmas?  I have some areas decorated but have yet to get to the outside or porch.  I’m hoping that the weather will cooperate on Saturday so that I can get these areas in the Christmas spirit.

The day before Thanksgiving I decorated the hutch in my kitchen with my vintage Christmas punch bowl collection and also my vintage Santa boot collection.



I’ve been collection both punch bowl sets and Santa boots for many years.  I had the picnic tin on top of the hutch for sale in my shop and it never sold.  When I closed my shop, I kept it, and I’m glad because I really like how it looks here.  Mama gave me the antique jar and the cookie cutters that fill it were my grandmothers.



I love the graphics on these punch sets and can just picture people in the 50’s or 60’s drinking eggnog at a party using one of these sets.




The two sets on this shelf look very similar but if you look closely you can see that the graphics are indeed different.



I forgot to get a picture of the set on the top shelf but if you look closely you may be able to see that the bowl and cups are adorned with music.




Candy used to come in these Santa boots.

I love these two because of the cute graphics on the boot cuff.

I kept my table simple this year with my DIY Recessed Glass Votive Centerpiece that I made a few years ago.  I’m sure to swap out the greenery and balls with candles when we get closer to Christmas.

I can’t believe it’s been four years since I first shared this with you.  Since I painted it red, I’ve also used it for Valentine’s Day and 4th of July.

I hope you’ve been enjoying this Christmas season!

I loved how I decorated my porch  and the outside of my house last year.  Both will probably look fairly similar this year.  The tree and lighted garland on the front porch are my favorite parts because I love seeing the lights when I get home at night.

Christmas Outside and on the Porch



  1. I saw several punch bowl sets like yours at the Vintage Market in Smithfield a couple weeks ago and thought of you. I always look forward to your Christmas blog posts just to see your collection again. They always make me want to collect. So hard to resist!

    1. Thank you, Wendy! Collecting is fun but it isn’t so much fun when it’s time to pack up and store all of those do-dads!

  2. The punch bowl set with the Santa boots makes a really nice display. I’m rather smitten with the punch bowl sets, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for them. Do you know, were they made by Fire King? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Looks great! Love the vintage bowls ! I would add a gingham napkin on an angle underneath each punch bowl in your hutch! Just a suggestion !

      1. That is a great idea, Cindy! I have some gingham napkins that I’m going to add under each punch bowl this weekend. Thanks so much for the suggestion!!

    2. I wondered who made these sets, Joyce. Thanks for letting me know that they are Fire King. I have resisted looking for additions to my collection but if I see a set at a good price, I know I’ll get it. 🙂

  3. Hi Paula! Christmas greetings to you as well. I absolutely love your hutch! Your decor is so cute 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing with us at Dishing It & Digging It!
