Farmhouse Christmas = Coziest Christmas Ever
To be honest, Christmas can’t come soon enough for me this year. It’s more than just the festivities and presents, for sure. But this is the first Christmas in about 3 years that we are actually in our home – you know, our forever home.
Back in 2017, we had a soot puffback in our tiny house in New York, which, while super-inconvenient at the time, ended up being a blessing in disguise. Long story short, we had to empty our house of EVERYTHING, have it cleaned, repainted and the carpets ripped out and floors replaced. The insurance company paid for all of that to get done – which sped up our 10-year plan of selling our house and moving to Tennessee.
So, after that, we never moved everything back in because we were staging to sell, so no real Christmas decor then. Last year, in 2018, we had just moved to Tennessee during the summer, had stayed with my in-laws, then in a rental home, and moved into our forever home about 2 weeks before Christmas.
We decorated and celebrated, but it was still pretty chaotic.
Well, THIS YEAR, we are finally settled and we can do Christmas right. Beyond excited!
Tips for Rustic Christmas Decor
So this year, I’m trying to be intentional and thoughtful, now that I’m pretty much starting with a blank canvas, which I love. We are still on a SAHM budget, which has been frustrating at times, but it’s really forced the creative mind to kick in, which I like.
If you need a little tutorial on rustic decor and how to put that together, you can look at this post. It’s an overview of rustic decor as well as how to incorporate that into mantels, which is perfect for Christmas!
I’m pulling out all the stops with Pinterest and Instagram for ideas, and going at it. (Don’t miss these 30+ best farmhouse Christmas porches on Instagram – total eye candy and inspiration!) I’ve become a huge fan of DIY lately too, and it’s not uncommon for me to pull out my phone in the store and take pictures so I can recreate it myself at home.

Or maybe using an advent calendar or ‘countdown to Christmas’ (and here are 40 ideas!). That all can count as Christmas decor, too!
