Christmas Decor Ideas | Festive Farmhouse Inspiration

Take this Christmas home tour for easy & classic Christmas decor ideas!

Today I want to welcome you into my home for a tour featuring simple yet festive farmhouse-inspired Christmas decor ideas. There is a huge bonus too because I am part of the Home for the Holidays tour hosted by Jenna from Wife in Progress. If you are coming over from The Everyday Home, welcome! More on the tour at the end of the post. 

This year, more than ever, my Christmas decorating goal was a welcoming yet uncluttered look. All my family, including my new granddaughter, will be here so the house will be bustling! I kept everything simple with pops of red all over. I began with the front porch.

If you are wondering about the grain sack bow: there are two posts that show exactly how to make the ribbon and the bow.

How to Make a Perfect Grain Sack Ribbon Bow

It’s always a challenge in the living room to come up with new Christmas decor ideas that make things look fresh and different. Some years I do better than others! This year, I had an idea when I saw this tutorial for adding ribbon garland to a Christmas tree. I decided to try it and breathe new life into my little table top tree. I bought a couple of rolls of burlap ribbon trimmed in red and wound it through my tree. I added new galvanized metal ornaments along with a star for the top. This simple update made me fall in love with my tree all over again.

As a thank you for participating in their blog hop, Kirkland’s sent me the ladder with the baskets. It was such a lovely surprise and much appreciated. I gave my vintage blanket ladder to my daughter and she was thrilled as well!

    Ann,

    Your home looks lovely, especially the dining room. I have never had a formal dining room to set ahead of time. Each glance into your dining room makes me want to stop by and take a peek in person. Thank you.

    And congratulations on the new grand baby. How exciting!

  27. I love your decorations! Especially the ladder with the wire baskets. Brilliant. And, the bookcase looks beautiful! Your Christmas dishes are my favorite pattern and your table setting is gorgeous. I love your newsletter & use a lot that you share. Thank you & Merry Christmas.

    Dear Ann,

    I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for your generosity in sharing not only your wealth of decorating knowledge, your beautiful home, recipes, etc. but also the yearly planner for 2018. I am giving my printer a workout today creating my planner for 2018. I sincerely appreciate the beautiful work and thoughtfulness that has gone into designing it. I was a Franklin Covey fan years ago (in my former working life) and now that I spend my time creating at home your planner is so fitting to my lifestyle.

    Next off the printer will be your Christmas Gift Tags…that is after I give my printer a break!!!

    Thanks again, Merry Christmas and hugs to you,
    Carol

  29. I love everything you have done, Ann. So pretty and festive without being overdone.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  30. It is all very nice. I think I first noticed your blog from the floral alphabet. Now I’m paying closer attention to things, since I’ve recently started my own project blog. Did you design your own logo? It looks sooo nice. I have some ideas for my logo, but no idea how to go about it. If you physically draw/ color your own logo, then how do you get the digital version to be so nice? Oh, I’m wishing I knew more about Photoshop and those things….but I am learning, little by little.

    1. I actually did not design my current logo. Karisa from Wander Design made it for me. It’s not physically drawn but designed graphically. I know you can use hand-drawn art for logos but I have no idea how to go about it. Best of luck! Here is Karisa’s link: http://wanderdp.com/design-shop/

  31. Lovely, Anne…as always! Love those pillows! XO ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project

  32. Ann, I think you’ve nailed it!! Pops of red is beautiful and that little tree is amazing.

  33. Joyce Dechaine says:

    You have a beautiful home with great ideas.

  34. Oh Ann, you’ve just got the most beautiful home! Everything looks so cozy all decked out for Christmas!

  35. Your home is lovely,I especially love the ladder with the baskets, the tabletop tree.The white lanterns and Christmas platter look so pretty in the bookshelves.

  36. Amber Hummel says:

    I love seeing the beauty in your home! Thank you for sharing!

  37. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I love the wire baskets on the ladder and how you create little vignettes in trays both as centerpieces on a dining table and on your coffee table in the living room. Not sure why but that makes it even more special. Love the burlap ribbon on the Christmas tree. Nothing is overdone but yet there is something pretty and festive to look at everywhere in the house. Great job!

    1. Amber Hummel says:

      Yes, I especially loved the wire baskets on the ladder too!

  38. So very pretty, Ann. Merry Christmas.

  39. Sandy Caryer says:

    Thank you for sharing your Home and especially the free printables. I had to retire due to a health disability. Although my husband is retired, he went back to part time work to pay for our ten-year-old son’s (adopted grandson) Christian education. Your free printable have helped to decorate our home. Blessings.

  40. Ann, love those pillows on the sofa! We have the same Christmas china and it looks wonderful in any setting. Your tree on the buffet is so bright and such a statement. Happy to be back on another blog hop with you. Great ideas.

  41. Barbara Holmes says:

    Loved the tour. Your home & decorations are beautiful. The ladder with the baskets is awesome. Have a Merry Christmas!!! Thank you for all the free printables, it is so generous of you.

  42. I love, love, LOVE your style, Ann. Unique, clever, understated, elegant. From the front porch’s red lanterns in the urns to your precious little burlap and aluminum tree, it all says ‘welcome home’ and ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. Thank you for sharing a slice of your life w/us.

  43. Just beautiful Ann..love the tree & the cotton tree..Your home is always lovely!

  44. Ann,
    Are the small Christmas trees on the coffee table in the living room made of cotton stems? I love the way they look. As a child going from the gulf coast of Texas to New Mexico dad would stop so I could get some cotton that was missed or dropped by the machines. I love those trees.

    1. Hi Lynn…yes the trees are made from cotton bolls. I did have a link for them but I just checked it and they are now sold out. Merry Christmas!

  45. Kendra @ www.joyinourhome.com says:

    Your home is so cozy and beautifully decorated Ann! I love that ladder from Kirklands aND the baskets filled with decor! So happy to be on this tour with you… Merry Christmas!

  47. Theresa Van Goethem says:

    Thank you for the decorating ideas for the porch. I now have pillows on the rockers and on the vintage glider. I love the lantern idea and have replicated it with my lantern. I have printed the gift tags and know they will be a hit this year also. Merry Christmas!.

  48. Jill Sherman says:

    I love the ladder next to the built in. Did you make this yourself? Are the baskets screwed in love love it!!!

  49. I love your pretty home all decked-out for Christmas! But my favorite is the coffee table vignette. The cotton tree is so cute. Being Southern I love that!

  50. I think your decorations are lovely. Your home looks beautiful. I wish I had your eye for decorating. Thank you for sharing. I love looking at beautiful places.

  51. Beautiful, homey, warm and inviting and decorated with love. Your family will have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Think of all the fun you will have with your new granddaughter down the road making cookies and inspiring a new generation. Many blessings, love and happiness to you and your family in 2018.

  52. Dear Ann, I follow your OSP from Brazil. Although I never comment, your ideas have been inspiring me for quite a long time.
    Your home is looking gorgeous this Christmas! Sua casa está tão linda para este Natal!
    I had decided not to have a tree this year, because we will be in my mother’s home on Christmas eve, but when I saw yours I completely changed my mind. The ribbon idea is simple and makes the tree look so beautiful…
    Thank you for all the beauty you share! Have a Merry Christmas, and a New Year full of joy and love.
