Well, I have to admit it….I’ve been waiting all year to finally decorate the Modern Farmhouse for Christmas. In fact, I was more excited to decorate IT than my own house!

Modern Farmhouse Christmas
I guess it’s the “new” factor, the clean modern farmhouse style that has got me so giddy to decorate for Christmas this year. I love the soft taupe walls, the white trim and all the beige or off white furnishings to inspire me to use these pops of reds and greens! Doesn’t it just SPEAK Christmas?!
SIMPLE CHRISTMAS DECOR
I didn’t want to go overboard. After all, this is a vacation rental home. So I did have to scale back what I would really love to do over there. Which in turn, also saved money on that end! Always a bonus when explaining things to my hubby! LOL
Skinny Flocked Tree
I started with this tree. Isn’t is beautiful. I just LOVE a flocked tree. With the limited space and trying to think where to put it that would be out of the way of guests using the living room, this corner next to the kitchen proved to be the perfect spot.
SIMPLE CHRISTMAS TREE
The tree came from Menards. I just love this store. This is a 9′ tree with lights and I decided (at least for this year) that was all that was needed. I attached it to a remote so our guests can turn it on or off as they choose. And the tree skirt I bought last year AFTER Christmas. It adds that rustic farmhouse feel, don’t you think?
POPS OF COLOR
Just by adding lots of Christmas pillows and a few micro fleece throw blankets, it really added that pop of red to make it complete.
I made this Christmas sign for the foyer table along with a cute little reindeer from Ross. The table runner I bought last year after Christmas as well (I can’t even remember where!) But it fits perfect with the feel I was going after.
I added another table runner to the dining table along with these sturdy trees (Hobby Lobby) to keep it simple and easy for guests to remove if needed and not worry about breakage.
Just a few other little pops of Christmas in the kitchen rounds out the look. I even added a little “hot cocoa” area to the island. Guests can help themselves to some hot cocoa mix, mini marshmallows and candy canes in mason jars.
So this is how I went about decorating the Modern Farmhouse. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for my weekly posts on what I have been doing on the farmhouse and other craft projects!
