New Farm Table Decorated For Christmas

Hey friends! 

I think I have gotten most of my Christmas decorating done now.  Just finished the final touches on my tree this morning.

I have definitely changed things up this year going with much more natural elements.  You will see that I have used lots of my favorite blue green color, white, and silver.  I have used mercury glass,  burlap, greenery, and old black and white family photos.  Can’t wait to show you all I have done.  It’s certainly nothing fancy, but my family and I are loving it and we are sure getting in the Christmas spirit around here.

The first thing I decorated was my beautiful new farm table that my friend Mr. Buckets of Burlap built me.

table 5


This is my husband’s childhood sled so it makes it a very special part of my Christmas décor.

table 6

table 4



table 8



table 10


The great thing about my Christmas décor this year is that I really didn’t change much out.  I traded hydrangeas for greenery and added just little wintery touches here and there.  A lot of what I am using can actually be taken on into the winter months and not just used for Christmas.  I really like that part.


I will be sharing more Christmas touches soon and cannot wait to show you my tree.  This is the first year my children have “let me” have clear lights and that I have used ornaments other than our traditional Hallmark type ornaments.  Loving the new look!!


Happy middle of the week to you, my friends.  God bless you all!

I love how the sled still has the cord to pull it wrapped around the top. Fun to have a grown up tree. I have all glass ornaments now that the kids are older.

Amy -

Looks GORGeous! I love what you did and the fact you WILL be able to take this into winter and enjoy the look longer. The table is wonderful....lucky you! Love the sled with the tag, doors propped up, the ladder, and of course Hurley. Can't wait to see more. Very pretty to wake up to this morning. YES YES show us the tree! It is giving me so much inspiration.

I love what you did. It's so fun mixing things up isn't it? That sled is a treasure. I really like having things that have stories behind them.

I found your blog the other day and was inspired by your winter mantle of 2011.

I took an old frame I had and spray painted it and made it a chalkboard like you did. I acutally posted about it today.

Have a great day!
