Hello my sweet friends!
I am excited to share my Christmas decor plans today. I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet, and we do have a few holiday rules at our house:
- No Christmas movies before Thanksgiving
- No Christmas music before Thanksgiving
- No Christmas decorating before Thanksgiving
but…there is no rule that says I can’t dream about or plan Christmas decor before Thanksgiving, so that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.
I’m unusually excited about decorating this year. I think it’s because I am so happy that I’ve finally settled on our mostly black and white farmhouse style, and it’s PERFECT for holiday touches all. year. long.
So…I chose a classic look, accenting the black and white with red and fresh greens. I bought these ornaments; the galvanized words at Michael’s and the painted wood from a booth at The Country Living Fair. (yep, been planning since September, what about it?? ;))
I have a few small pieces left of the ticking fabric from my painted fabric and frame chair makeover, so it will appear in small doses.
And I ordered a couple of yards of this plaid from fabric.com (affiliate link), and I have some ideas for throw pillows and ornaments, as well as other plaid accents. Stay tuned for those!
Stripes will make an appearance in more than just ticking, of course. I love this ribbon, also from fabric.com.
We cut down a tree every year, and with that I’m planning for touches of live greens in every room. Some I’ll purchase, and some will come from our yard.
Do you want to see some inspiration photos? Below are some looks from my favorite bloggers that are inspiring me this year.
Love love love this space from Lily Pad Cottage.
And this vignette from Liz Marie Blog.
And this last but not least, this front porch from Finding Home Farms.
I can’t wait to get started, but I will take time to enjoy Thanksgiving first. How about you? Do you decorate early? Are you in the planning and dreaming stage like me?
Let’s talk in the comments!
