A Little Fifties Christmas!!

I started writing this post as a compilation of a few of my favourite Christmas Songs! It soon became pretty obvious they were all hailing from the 1950s, so I thought why stop there? So heres a little bit of inspiration to add some 50s fun to your christmas this year!!

I'll kick off with my favourite christmas songs.....

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas - Bing Crosby 1951

Baby It's Cold Outside - Dean Martin 1959

Frank Sinatra - Let It Snow, 1950

Now your in the mood it's trime to send out your xmas cards....

from stylised baubles from the V&A

to cute retro kitties found here

sending retro christmas cards can spread the 50s love!!!

Decorate your finest 50s tree
