A Cozy Vintage Christmas

This year, I wanted to keep my Christmas decor simple. After the year we’ve had, I just wanted a cozy Christmas at home and I wanted my decor to reflect that. I wasn’t feeling some of my bright red decor pieces that I’ve used in years past and I actually sold some of it on Facebook Marketplace. While I did keep some pops of red in certain areas around the house, I incorporated more neutrals than I usually do. I wanted it to feel cozy and inviting this Christmas, with a vintage farmhouse feel.

In our entryway, I hung a jute star garland that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby a few years ago and this adorable book page banner that my friend Amy @theboundandprint made me. I used my favorite chunky knit pillow covers and a couple of thrifted tan pillows on the church pew. I love the look of wood and white paired with neutrals.

In the front sitting room, one of my favorite rooms in the house, I decorated my shelf with a DIY book page banner, thrifted brass candlesticks, faux cedar garland, and an antique gold mirror. I used a vintage sled that I found at Goodwill as coffee table decor.

One of our Christmas traditions is to go out and cut a real tree every year as a family. We found a local tree farm last year that sells Canaan and Frazier firs and all of their trees are $35. I love searching through the field with our little ones to find the perfect tree and cutting it down ourselves. I only bought one pack of ribbon ornaments and some white cording (1.29/yd) from Hobby Lobby this year. All of the other ornaments I already had.

I used some cedar stems in my antique galvanized vase as a centerpiece on my dining table. I paired it with a brass trumpet candlestick that I found at Goodwill for $1 and a candle placed in a $3 mini wreath from the Target dollar spot.

I used other vintage-style pieces around the dining room, like a thrifted brass horn and an old-fashioned hot cocoa sign.

I wanted to keep at least one room in the house completely neutral. I was so excited to decorate our living room for Christmas since we just recently gave it a refresh. I replaced the jute rug in here with this neutral rug I found on Facebook Marketplace for only $20!

I kept our master bedroom decor neutral too. I strung a bell garland that I made using bells I found at Goodwill and added a pillow from the Target dollar spot on our bed.

I decided to use my red Rae Dunn Christmas pieces on my mug rack and on my coffee bar for some pops of red. I also added just a few pops of red here and there. I’m glad I didn’t completely ditch the red everywhere!

I really am happy with our Christmas decor this year and plan to do a similar look next year. Let me know what you think in the comment section below!

Thank you for reading and Merry Christmas! 🎄

My Fall Farmhouse Tour

This year for fall, I knew that I wanted to keep a mostly neutral color scheme with a few pops of orange. I also knew that I wanted to incorporate black and white buffalo check. A few of my favorite fall farmhouse decor items include white pumpkins, fall Rae Dunn mugs, fall pillow covers, and cute wooden signs!

My Fall Entryway

For our entryway, I decorated my antique church pew with buffalo check pillows and this adorable pumpkin patch pillow cover. I also added a fall floral basket that my mom made me!

Sitting Room

I added another cute fall pillow cover in our front sitting room and some fall stems in a galvanized tin. I added this thankful sign that I got for $3 last year in the Target dollar spot on my chippy white table.

Fall Tablescape

In my dining room, I used black and white buffalo check napkins, Rae Dunn plates, and galvanized chargers for our table setting. For the centerpiece, I found these cute lanterns at Hobby Lobby on sale for $3 each and a clearance greenery garland that was only $5! The little white pumpkins are also from Hobby Lobby and were on sale for about $2 each.

Target Bullseye Spot for the win!

Before I found the garland on clearance, I had a Rae Dunn pitcher with eucalyptus stems and this cute little sign that I found at the Target dollar spot as the centerpiece.

Hutch Display

I draped some faux wheat stems on the top of my hutch and kept my tobacco basket and cotton wreath on the top. I added a buffalo check napkin and a cute wood sign (from Hobby Lobby) to keep it simple. I also added a bead garland that I made using these beads!

I’m so grateful!!

A few days later, I received a package in the mail containing this adorable Rae Dunn Grateful pumpkin. It was a gift from an anonymous Instagram follower for hitting a goal of reaching 1000 followers. Thank you to whoever gifted me this! It makes me so happy!

Fall Coffee Bar

I used more buffalo check and some new fall Rae Dunn mugs to decorate my coffee bar. This cute Give Thanks sign I found on clearance for $4 at Hobby Lobby and the buffalo check banner was only $3 in the Target Bullseye Spot!

My Mug Rack

I also added a few fall Rae Dunn mugs and some orange stems to my mug rack to give it a simple fall look!

Built-in Bench

I added these buffalo check pillow covers and another Target Bullseye spot find, this cute pumpkin pillow, to my built-in bench in our living room.

Breakfast Nook

I added some cotton stems, a little white pumpkin, and some buffalo check napkins to the breakfast nook table setting. I like to keep the table setting simple in here because this is where we eat most of our meals!

Hallway Decor

At the end of our hallway, I added an antique window frame (look at that chippy white paint!) and a hand-me-down orange berry wreath. I also added a small black table with some black candlesticks that I found at Goodwill for only $1 each! I love how simple this was and the difference it made to our previously empty hallway is incredible!

I hope you enjoy my fall decor this year! Feel free to comment with any questions you might have! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @faith.and.farmhouse for more farmhouse decorating ideas!
