Farmhouse Style Christmas Decor Guide
Happpppy November 1st my friends! Today I am sooooo excited to share with you my farmhouse style Christmas decor guide. As crazy as it seems, the Christmas buzz is definitely in the air around here lately. I’m sure you’ve noticed that every single store (and Pinterest!) is already exploding with all things Christmas. And I’ll be honest. I’m itching to start decorating. I know it’s early, but if I was a bettin’ woman I’d say there are many of you here that are already thinking about it too. This year my plan is to prepare early so I’m not scrambling in December and missing out on truly enjoying the season, which is exactly what I did last year. Nope, not happening again. This year I’m committing myself to being more prepared and now’s the time to start! And since I thought you might be thinking along the same lines, this Christmas edition farmhouse style shopping guide will give you lots of inspiration as you prepare to decorate your home for the season. Christmas is so special. There’s just something magical about this time of year. You won’t ever see me loading up on decor for Halloween, Easter, or the 4th of July. But when it comes to Christmas, I have a completely different mindset. It’s truly a season to be honored and decorating our homes is a special way to do that. Investing in decor that you know you’ll love for years and years to come is key to creating a warm and cozy home for the holiday. So today I’m sharing some great sources and ideas for the key pieces you’ll need to decorate your home. I’m talking wreaths, pillows, signs, and lots of decor. Let’s do it!
First up is wreaths, which are one of the most versatile things you can buy. You can hang them on the wall, above your bed, or even on your cabinets in the kitchen. Or you can even use them as a centerpiece on your dining table with a large vase in the middle. Lots and lots of possibilities with these babies, so here are my 8 favorite Christmas wreaths!
- Red Berry Wreath
- Ice Pine Wreath
- Cedar Berry Wreath
- Lit Magnolia Wreath
- Holiday Trimmings Wreath
- Pomegranate Apple Pine Cone and Berry Wreath
- Pinecone and Berry Christmas Wreath
- Lit Birch Wreath
Ok, I looked at a toooooon of wreaths and in that process I realized I am drawn to those that are just classic and timeless. I feel like all of these I’ve selected will stand the test of time and be something you can keep in your home for many seasons to come.
- Merry and Bright Sign
- Baby It’s Cold Outside Sled Wall Art
- Red Wagon Christmas Sign
- Merry Little Christmas Sign
- Holiday Mirror Wall Art
- Reindeer Roll Call Plaque
- Wooden Peace Sign
It took quite a while for me to create a collection Christmas signs that I love. I guess I’m picky! But how cute is that sled?! I love it and the cool thing is can be used in lots of different ways. Definitely my favorite of the bunch!
- Holly Jolly Vintage Christmas Pillow
- Linen Red Stripe Pillow
- Tree and Red Car Pillow Cover
- Trees for Sale Pillow
- Warm Wishes Pillow
- Birth Lane Vienna Wreath Pillow
- Merry and Bright Pillow
- Sherpa Reindeer Plaid Pillow
I really love that you can find vintage inspired pillows at many retailers now. I just love the classic look, not too flashy and not over the top. All of these would be great options for any room in your home–bedroom, living room, even your entryway. You really can’t go wrong–pillows are the easiest way to decorate for any season, so darn easy and simple. Hopefully ones of these pillows strikes your fancy!
- Vintage North Pole Post Box
- Reindeer Snow Globe
- Pinecone and Berry Arrangement
- Foreside Joy Collage Wooden Wall Sign
- Birch 3 Piece Hurricane Set
- Vintage Santa Book Set
- 18″ White Yarn Wrapped Tree
- Wood Tabletop Tree
Ok, can we just talk about that vintage inspired North Pole post box for a hot minute?! I’m obsessed. I was so excited when I found it. Surely you can leave something like this out all year round, right?
- Home for the Holidays Scroll
- Preserved 3 Piece Wreath Set
- Heritage Balsam Fir Jar Candle

- Jingle All the Way Stocking
- Galvanized Tree Collar

Well that’s it! I hope you found some inspiration and got a few ideas cookin’ for how you can decorate your home for the most wonderful time of year! Now’s the time to get yourself organized, order the goodies you need (and want!) and get your home ready. Christmas decor can get a little overwhelming, so I suggest focus on staying true to your style and choose items that will seamlessly blend into your home. And investing in timeless and classic decor will make decorating your home a complete breeze each and every year. Thanks soooooo much for stopping by, it means the world to me!
Love it all & can’t wait till after Thanksgiving to begin the decorating magic!
Thank you Jan, I can’t wait to start decorating either!
Love the Joy sign and the “jingle” stocking…….I have to stop. I’m like you I’m just drawn to Country Christmas decor. Thanks for feeding my addiction 🙂
Sarah> Marilyn Soto
Haha, it is an addiction! But a good one 🙂 Thanks for stopping by sweet Marilyn!
I, like you, am addicted to Christmas trimmings and décor. I love the North Pole Special Delivery and Tree and Red Car Pillow Covers. The Vintage Santa Book Set is beautiful as well. I always say I am not buying anymore Christmas décor, but cave in to purchase at least one or two new items a season. I looked at my fall décor and pumpkins this AM and thought, “Can’t wait to put these away and start Christmas decorating.” I love decorating early so you can enjoy the season and get all Christmas shopping done before November 30 so you can truly enjoy all holiday happenings and décor in our own homes. I am glad there are so many other people out there that are anxious to put out Christmas. 🙂 Beautiful items, Sarah. Love them all!!!!
Sarah> Doreen Sulfaro
Hi Doreen! I agree with you, I think it’s fun to purchase one or two new things each season! And I did the same thing this morning. I walked by my little pumpkin centerpiece in our breakfast nook and I thought, “Well, better grab the storage boxes and pack it up!” Christmas decor is coming out!
That tree collar is pure genius!!!! I’m sooooo excited about it – is that crazy?? Thank you for posting these great finds, you have saved me some headache and lots of time! Thank you!!
Right??! I love the tree collar too. So happy you like the finds Heather, I spent hours searching for the best goodies I could find. Have a great day!
Love everything you post, i truly look forward to the post each and every day!!! I too am obsessed with country anything!!!! I add alot of coastal touches to my decorating such as shells we collect and star fish and such. I am also now in the process of wainscoting most of my first floor painted a bright shiny white with very light beige or sage going on the upper part of the walls. But back to the reason why i am posting…i love the galvanized tree band but to save some money and still have that country look under my tree i purchased a white twin size sheet and i get under that tree and fluff and fix and fluff some more until it looks like a snow under the tree. The lights shine off of it so beautiful i get compliments that the tree looks like it came from Pottery Barn. Just a suggestion and please keep the posts coming!! Have a wonderful blessed country day!! xo
Sarah> Tammy Ganci
Aw Tammy, thank you SO much for your kinds words. It really means the world to me that you enjoy my blog! I love your idea of doing the twin sheets under the tree, I bet with those all fluffed up it does look like snow! Great idea!
Do you know where I can find vinatge heater vents and light switches?
Sarah> Linda Farrell
Hmmm…not sure on that one…I’ll look around and if I can find any I’ll let you know Linda!
I love this post I’ve been dying to get my Christmas decor out and I love all the ideas you have gave. Thanks.!! You have the perfect taste to decorate to decorate everything. Have any ideas what to do with a old 1919 wooden church bulletin.? I love it but I don’t know how to decorate with it.
Thank you Ann, that is so sweet of you to say! You have a 1919 wooden church bulletin?! Sounds amazing. Send me a picture of it at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see if I can come up with some ideas!
Do you have any particular ideas and ways to decorate a simple, old, and not huge over the top fire place for Christmas? That’s probably my biggest problem this year. Everything else I believe I can piece together.
Sara – what a terrific job you did in gathering all of these items! This is the best collection I’ve ever seen. What a great job you do in your blog….I look forward to it each and every day!
Thank you so much Jana, I’m so happy to hear you liked my finds. And thank for your kind words about my blog, it really means the world to me!
what a great collection, Sarah! I love it all actually!
Thanks Kellie, I spent hours searching everything out. Apparently I’m super picky! 🙂
What an awesome list Sarah, I am like you and I can’t wait to decorate the house for Christmas. It is and always will be my favorite season!!
Thanks Sabrina! I can’t wait to get our home decorated either, it’s always such a special time of year 🙂
