The Farmhouse // Holiday Home Tour

THE FARMHOUSE

Christmas is 8 days away (!) and goodness, I love this time of year. We’ve been decorating and baking and watching Christmas movies (It’s a Wonderful Life on repeat!) and just enjoying being home. And speaking of home, I thought it was high time we gave you a holiday tour of the Farmhouse.

There’s a funny story about our Christmas tree, and it goes like this: Garrett let Wilder, our 5-year-old, prune the tree. Gah! Sure, the tree wasn’t one of those manicured, tree-lot kind of trees to begin with (it came from the forest), but it got a whole lot worse when Wilder picked up the pruning sheers. Garrett was supervising, but didn’t realize how bad it was until they set it in the stand.

We had such a laugh afterwards, that we decided to let the kids decorate the tree too…well as much as 3-foot humans can. Our tree is awful and amazing and I can’t help but smile every. single. time!

We’re hosting a lot of guests this holiday season (including my blogging buddy, Ashley!), so I decorated our new bathroom too. This is the only bathroom on the main floor so not only do guests use it, but our kiddos do too, which means I’m in and out of here all day. I love the garland in here so much that it will probably stay until it crumbles into green dust.

Since our main tree is so…colorful…I decided to put a second, smaller tree in our master bedroom. It’s definitely a Charlie-Brown-style Christmas tree (i.e. short and sparse) but I love it, especially decked out with gold ornaments. We also added a DIY wreath, garland, and a few red candles to our simple bedroom. psst: we’ll be sharing a DIY tutorial for our marble topped nightstands in the new year!

We’ll be spending Christmas at our Farmhouse (with both sets grandparents!), meaning we’ll get to enjoy the decor through the holidays. We’re pretty informal about Christmas but like to give the kids a new pair of PJ’s on Christmas Eve and then wake up to see what Santa left the next morning. After presents are open, we’ll spend the day playing, putting together a puzzle, cooking, and baking. I can’t wait!

Where will you be spending the holidays? Any special decorating you’ll be doing for guests or family members? We’d love to hear about your holiday traditions in the comments below! And from our home to your’s, we wish you all the merriment and joy this Christmas season.

xoxo
