If you saw yesterday’s holiday home tour, fair warning that this one is a complete 180 from that one. Yesterday, I shared our 70’s Landing Pad decked out for Christmas and today, I’m sharing our family’s farmhouse all done up for the holidays. It’s two very different decor styles!
Before I go any further though, a big thanks to Marty from A Stroll thru Life for gathering all the forces and organizing this tour every year. Marty has gorgeous style, so if you haven’t checked out her holiday home tour, be sure to.
If you’re following the tour line-up today and hopping over from Monica Wants It and this is your first time here, hello! Monica is absolutely killer at mixing chic, glam and classic styles to create gorgeous spaces! My tour probably won’t hold a candle to her’s!
For the holiday decor at the farmhouse, I stick with more traditional / cozy / vintage decorations. So really, it’s a mish-mash of different styles I guess, but I think it works together and we like it. The farmhouse was my grandparent’s home so I also pull out a lot of things that were their’s to decorate with.

Christmas at the Farm
The Living Room
Blue Chair / Rug / Ottoman / Media Cabinet / Christmas Tree / Wingback Chairs
My absolute favorite thing in the living room this season is this little corner. The saddle stand just shines when it’s all done up for the holidays. I’m planning to paint the corner cabinet at some point, but for the holidays I hung my grandmother’s plastic popcorn Christmas tree over one door.
Grunt made the saddle stand for me for Mother’s Day this year. Hands down, it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever received.
This is probably the fourth year I’ve jacked my kid’s little red wagon to use in my Christmas decor. I make no apologies and have every intention to do it for many Christmases to come.
The saddle stand holds my great-grandfather’s saddle on it that my dad gave me and my Pap’s cowboy hat. I added a little holiday color to the setup with the plaid blanket under the saddle and the greenery over the saddle. It’s my favorite thing in the whole space.
My father-in-law gave us his sleigh from his childhood a few years back. For the holidays, it became a side table of sorts beside the wingback chairs. I love how perfectly it fits in here.
I bought this Christmas tree for the farm last year. I wanted one that looked like we had just went out in the woods and chopped it down. This one fit the bill perfectly and I love it just as much this year.
Rug / Media Cabinet / Christmas Tree
It’s meant to be more of a sparse tree and so the ornaments all really shine on it. I have rarely ever found a tree skirt that I just love so I often improvise and use blankets as tree skirts. I used a cowboy blanket that used to be in my dad and uncle’s room growing up for the tree skirt this year.
Wall Sconce / Large Vase / Small Vase / DIY Ornament Cluster
To dress up the wall sconces, I put an ornament cluster around each. The larger vase holds ornaments that were Grunt’s grandmother’s. They are super fragile so I prefer to put them in the vase, rather that on the tree where they might fall and shatter. I also love how all the colors look together in the vase.
This little girl was a yard sale find. She had the perfect vintage vibe that goes well with the rest of the farmhouse so I knew she was meant to be here. She reminds me of my little circus too. 🙂
That’s it for me! Up next on today’s Christmas home tours is Clean and Scentsible – Jenn always has absolutely beautiful holiday decorations!

Jenna, I love the farmhouse and the living room looks perfect. That tree is amazing, it look like a real one and I absolutely love the saddle and hat. How perfect to have those treasures from your family. Thanks so much for joining the tours, I always love both of your homes and can’t wait to see how you decorate them.
Thank you so much, Marty! You are too sweet and I’m so appreciative of being included in the tour! Thank you!
I need more sparkle ornaments. Just like my paint and my hair my decor is a little flat! Where do you have the most luck on ornaments in bulk? Love marty too! laura in Colorado
For the most part, I just keep an eye out for ornaments at thrift stores and yard sales throughout the year. Basically, if I see a package of them, I buy them. So, it’s not really like I buy in bulk, but instead throughout the year. 🙂
PS I love the sled turned coffee table. Love it! laura again
Thank you, Laura! That’s one of my favorite touches too!

Man, your home is like something out of Architectural Digest. Gorgeous.
But I have to say, that cute little vintage find had me thinking she pooped.
Then upon further inspection, I realized it was logs.
Ho ho ho.
Ha!! You’re totally boosting my ego, Kari! haha! Thanks! And I can totally see how the logs could have looked like poop – that’s hilarious!
Laura Ingalls Gunn says
What a darling tour! I adore all of the touches of red. So happy to be on the tour with you!

Susan the Farm Quilter says
Love your Christmas at the Farm!! So, I gotta ask, if you could find your perfect tree skirt, what would it look like?? I need a saddle stand…my saddle is hiding in a sealed bin so mice don’t eat it! I really love your sled as well!!
You do need a saddle stand, Susan!! I love having ours out to look at now! Hmmm, the perfect tree skirt. I don’t know! I guess I have seen some that I like, but they are so darn expensive! I’ve seen some fur ones I thought were really pretty, but then when I look at the price tag, I’m like, heck no, I can wrap a fur blanket I already have around the base and be good to go! And honestly, I think I might even like the blanket wrapped look better. I’m weird I guess!

Super cute ideas! I love the vintage feel of your Christmas decor – and that tree is perfect!!
How lovely & cozy everything looks Jenna. Love the saddle rack & the sleigh& the little red wagon & all the vintage touches. What a lovely home from home you have made.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
Thanks so very much, Shirley! I hope you have a lovely Christmas!
So fun Jenna! Love the saddle holder and the little wagon with the presents! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Thanks, Jenn! Merry Christmas to you as well!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I especially like the tree. I gave away our old Christmas tree when we moved last year and then didn’t go shopping for a new one so I ended up using and old wooden ladder, instead. Well here we are, another year gone by…..and I still haven’t bought a new tree. LOL. Anyway, long story short, I told my husband I wanted one that looks more natural than our old one did. This one fits the bill perfectly! I love the saddle and the sleigh, a nice homage to the past. The traditional decor of the farmhouse is more my style, I tend towards red, gold, and green, buffalo checks, bows and ribbons, etc. I love the splash of color at the 70’s Landing Pad, but the farmhouse is more “me.”
Thanks, Brigitte! I totally get it! Everyone has their own unique taste! I guess it’s funny that I have two very different tastes – haha!! You need to snatch up a tree when they go on sale after Christmas!
Brigitte Baker says
That was my plan last year and then it didn’t happen. That’s ok, there’s always this year! Matter of fact, the tree I gave away was an after-Christmas clearance purchase! SCORE. We had that tree almost ten years, so I’m ready for a change. 🙂 Merry Christmas, love!
Your home is gorgeous and so festive! Your saddle stand is so fun! I use a little red wagon for decorating too. Mine is filled with ornaments. Happy Holidays!
Thanks, Jill! Ooo, adding ornaments is a great idea – I might have to borrow that one next year!

Jenna, I love all the farmhouse Christmas details: the saddle with the plaid saddle blanket, the precious red wagon (hope your kids get it back!), the sleigh with a family history and all the vintage pieces. And, the back and white plaid wrapping paper and pillow. As hostess, I’m choosing you for this Sunday’s Happiness is Homemade features. Merry Christmas
Thank you so very much for the feature, Carol!! That makes my day!
Shelbee on the Edge says
Jenna, these photos made me smile so big! So festive and fun. And your saddle stand really is quite amazing. And how special that it has so much sentimental meaning for you. I would totally hijack the little red wagon as Christmas decor, too!
Thanks, Shelbee! Yep, I love both that saddle stand and wagon too!
