This year I had a few hands to help decorate this Christmas Season, my daughter and I managed to do most of the decorating but, my husband did help with setting the tree in the tree stand and strung the lights around the tree. We get a fresh tree every year, and it is always a surprise and new adventure with picking out the tree, we have a different tree every year with its own characteristics.
1st when decorating we like to get all the bins out and unwrap everything. We decide what to use this year, what to save for next year and what to donate.
While decorating we like to listen to Christmas music and sip on hot chocolate. Also, it is tradition around here to start decorating right after Thanksgiving day.
What are some of your decorating tips and traditions please share in the comments!
Steps for a Simple Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Ideas
The home is a place we retreat and is adored. Decorating for Christmas does not have to cut into your budget nor break the bank.
If you are creative and used elements from the past, outdoors and everyday items around your home decorating for Christmas can be affordable. I created a Simple Farmhouse Christmas and in my home by using items found from local thrift store, secondhand shops and inexpensive retail stores.
Decide your main colors you want to use in your Simple Farmhouse Christmas Decorating. You may want to do blue and gold.
Think what areas in your home you want to decorate such as kitchen, bedroom and/or living room. Also, I would focus on one focal point such as a piano, fireplace or staircase.
Decide what you want to decorate with during Christmas. Do you want lots of greenery, ribbon, flowers, etc.?
Make a list of what you own and what items you either need to replace or purchase during your Christmas Decorating to achieve the desired look.
Many items you own right now can be donated. If last year’s Christmas Decorating is beat up or worn it is time to toss. Create a list on your phone to have with you at all times when browse for Christmas Décor.
Simple Farmhouse Christmas Decorating the Cupboards
Creating a collection of items, you already own in your home such as pitchers and plants are not only adorable but inexpensive and creates a Simple Farmhouse Christmas. Each piece on in your cupboards and shelves should have sprinkle of gold, silver, pine, and eucalyptus to create a beautiful space that is not only functional but, very inviting during the Holiday Season.
A cupboard shelves is functional and a festive way to showcase your dishes, lines and greenery.
Filling pretty bowls with seasonal fruit such as oranges, pomegranates and/or pears is accessible and lovely. Adding fresh cut evergreens such as cedar from your homestead tuck here and there to add simple farmhouse decorating.
Clear, glass jars filled with candies such as candy canes and cookies are affordable and very smart decorating.
Cupboards in a space can provided organization but, they can bring out style and personality. When decorating cupboard shelves design to reflect your who you are and the people who live in your home.
Simple Farmhouse Christmas Stars
Hanging stars throughout your home is perfect for splashes of Christmas in any kitchen and living room.
Add red from kitchen towels to napkins not only give texture but, a vibrant Christmas color.
Farmhouse Christmas Lighting
Candles can cozy up any space during the Christmas Season and you should never skip in your home. Either candles or twinkle lights you cannot go wrong.
Light eliminates darkness and provide a warming glow to sparkles during Christmas.
Decorating with lighting is a simple and affordable way to decorate for Christmas. Using lamps, candles and twinkle light create a cozy space that is romantic.
Place tea lights, pillar or votive candles and add inside a glass vase. Decorate glass vase in a clutter to make a statement on a mantel, piano or coffee table.
Candles and Twinkle Lights are a festive accent and a small detail that makes an impact. If using real candles keep flames well away from all items. All candlesticks should have a tray to catch any drippings and always trim your wicks to prevent and uneven burn or black burn. Never leave any real candles unattended.
On my farmhouse for Christmas, I used all fake candles that simply turn on and off with a remote. Lighting provides a cozy effect when days are shorter during the Christmas Season.
Farmhouse Christmas Bells
Do not forget to add bells and ribbons for a simple and special touch to remind us of all the reason for the season.
I love going on hunts for pretty ribbon in my seasonal color of choice along with curating antique/vintage bells.
Bells, “Carol of the Bells” when I think Christmas, I think Bells, the more bells the better. Purchasing bells are an inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas on a Budget. Fill a glass jar or bowl with bells and that could make a simple centerpiece.
Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments
Lastly, another Simple Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Idea is to not give away your old Christmas Ornaments. One way you can embrace old Christmas Ornaments is to put them to new use.
A vintage bowl or jar filled with Christmas Ornaments, and it becomes a festive focal point. Tuck bits of pine and eucalyptus to give a natural lovely look.
Christmas ornaments are rich in history and need a place where they are cherished. Traditionally, hanging ornaments on the tree is common but, think about placing in something different.
Many Thrifty Christmas Ornaments can be found on the shelves of local thrift shops such as the Salvation Army.. Often you will find me looking for items to complete many spaces within my home such as my shelves. Just remember to shop off season does help on finding the best Christmas decorations. In my experience I find my best Christmas find in January and July.
Shopping at Thrift Stores you will be surprised on how much variety of Christmas Decorations are available. Thrift Stores are filled with tons of ornaments and figurines for all styles including a farmhouse inspired home!
