Celebrating the Holidays with Crown and Glory

A Vintage Nerd

Christmastime was made extra special this year with the arrival of my monthly Crown and Glory Glitterati box. The team behind the beautiful hair accessories, Sophie and Gareth, have really outdone themselves for this holiday season.

I received a gold headband and the most spectacular glitter bow that I cannot wait to wear with a 60's bouffant. Along with these two goodies came the most beautiful crown of Christmasy goodness that I have ever seen let alone own. Flower crowns were popular in the mid to late 60's so it made me giddy to own one that was themed to the holiday.

I love my holiday crown so much that I knew I had to share it with you all. It really did make our holidays celebrations that more fun and beautiful. My daughter has already asked to borrow it!

In my Crown and Glory box this month I also received a neat little keychain and a very sweet Christmas card. I also received my very first Christmas cracker which I excitedly opened on Christmas day. Inside was a super cute holly glitter hair clip and confetti. I loved opening my cracker so much that my husband and I decided to incorporate this tradition into our next holidays next year. I think the children would love it as much as we did.
