Welcome to My Christmas Home Tour!

Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour … coordinated by the “All Things Home” group!  I’m so excited and honored to have you visiting my humble abode during the holiday season. This past week I’ve felt like one of Santa’s Elves scurrying about in a flurry preparing for Christmas! I hope you’ll take time this week to visit all the houses on this week’s virtual Christmas Home Tour … there are 30 in all, filled with Christmas eye candy galore just for you! And at the end of this post is a chance to win a $200 gift card from One King’s Lane.

Also … I’m participating in Jennifer Rizzo’s Deck the Halls Party!

Now onto the tour of my circa 1875 farmhouse. Let’s get started in the dining room …

 

Christmas Dining Room at Town and Country LivingNormally, I don’t decorate with a lot of red …

… but something got into me and I chose this festive color for my 2013 Christmas tablescape.

 

Red and White Christmas Dining RoomIt all started with the red snowflake place mats I found at Home Goods.

Silver chargers add a bit of glitter to the table.

 

Red and White Christmas Table SettingI couldn’t find the napkin rings I wanted, so I made some by snipping strands of berries from floral sprays.

Bend them into a circle and twist the ends together to form your napkin ring.

Christmas Centerpiece via Town and Country LivingMy Christmas centerpiece is simply a big glass jar with a white pillar candle tucked inside.

Greens and berries add color and texture while a red and white ribbon adds a bit of whimsy.

 

My Christmas Home Tour via Town and Country LivingI’m really lovin’ the red and white theme in my Christmas dining room.

Farmhouse Christmas Kitchen via Town and Country LivingOur farmhouse kitchen is located on the north side of the house, so I’ve kept the colors light and neutral.

 

Christmas in a Farmhouse KitchenWe installed the open shelving earlier this year and I quickly loaded it with white ironstone.

Each one is adorned with a white ironstone dish and a blue mason jar stuffed with tulle and red berries.

Vintage Christmas Home TourI made the bottle brush trees and will soon share how to make them.

On December 12th I’ll share the other half of my kitchen during the Farmhouse Christmas Tour with 8 other bloggers. Yes, that’s right … even more Christmas inspiration for you, but this time with a farmhouse theme!

Let’s head on into the living room for more of my Christmas Home Tour.

 

Christmas Home Tour at Town and Country LivingI must confess, I still want to add more Christmas inspiration in this room.

 

Christmas Farmhouse Living RoomDon’t ask me what, though. I haven’t decided yet … it just feels like it needs something more!

 

Vintage Ornaments at Town and Country LivingMy Christmas motto is … you can never have too many vintage ornaments!

 

Vintage Christmas Tree at Town and Country LivingMy favorite part of decorating the tree is hanging the ornaments.

I do not like stringing the lights, however!

We cut down our tree at Lee’s Trees.

I was looking for the perfectly imperfect tree.

 Charlie Brown Christmas Tree at Town and Country LivingWhen I spied this tree sprouting from a ditch, I knew I found the one! Crooked trunk and imperfect branches.

Even the tag said “Charlie Brown Tree” on it.  The price was a mere $25! Perfect!

Last year I trimmed lots of branches off our tree … I didn’t want to have to do that again to fit the ornaments.

 

My Christmas Home Tour at Town and Country LivingNow that today’s Christmas Home Tour is over, I can sit down and relax by the tree!

This beautiful rooster pillow is from The Everyday Home’s Shops.

I want to give Barb’s online shop a shout-out as a way to thank her for organizing this tour!

  8. That dining room will haunt my dreams. The white with red and blue is just a perfect holiday combination. You nailed it all out of the park and I’m truly feeling inspired.

    My pinning fingers are going ot be hurting.

  9. Jennifer, I love the mix of red, white and blue in your kitchen and dining area. Such an unexpected combo for the holidays, but it works so well. Those blue mason jars look amazing with that simple touch of red on them.

    I’m excited to see the rest of your farmhouse kitchen decorated for Christmas.

  10. Hi Jennifer,

    Your home is the perfect setting for holiday decorating, you are a tough act to follow!

    And nice decision on using the red. Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don’t, but it works so well on the table. Very lovely. Glad to be on the tour with you 🙂

  11. I love that your tree is imperfect in shape but perfectly decorated. I also have a natural tree each year, so I won’t put it up before a few weeks. And mine is always crooked also, part of its charm!

  12. Beautiful decorations mostly White like your entire home, but the splashes of red really does it! Very warm, pretty and inviting.

  20. Love your house!!! Especially the kitchen……in the process of using the same colors…..the yellow, turquoise and white!

  21. Just love your imperfect tree and the decorations along with the incredible price. I think I like your little circle topiary in the pot the most, just adorable. New fan and I have to pin to my Christmas board of course

  22. I can’t wait to see your bottle brush tree tutorial – so adorable! I love every singe detail you added to your gorgeous home! It’s so welcoming and festive! The pops of red accents are stunning! It’s been fun to party with you! ~ Heather

  23. Love your home!!! and your Christmas tree is gorgeous!!! I would love to have a tree like that but I have a cat that loves to hide out in our tree. I love how all the whites help make the colors pop. Beautiful!

  24. It’s all so beautiful, Jennifer. I love the red and also your perfectly imperfect tree. You just have a certain touch that gives your decorations a soft and feminine feel that I really love!

  25. Jennifer, Your home looks just beautiful! Congrats on the Savvy Southern Style feature. Where did you buy the pretty red and white ribbon? I love the look of it. Thanks for all the inspiration. I’m not feeling that inspired so I very much enjoyed my visit here. It’s not the easiest to decorate with a baby in the house. I’m just enjoying baby time and not a lot of decorating time. Have a lovely holiday season. ~ Jamie

  26. I just love your home, it is so well done. I enjoyed seeing it in Simply Shabbilicious magazine. I love all your festive touches, and oh my goodness, I would love to have all that ironstone. One of my favorites! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

    1. Hi Andrea! I don’t know what type of tree it is, unfortunately. It wasn’t located on the tree farm where most of the trees were. It was actually growing out of a ditch and because it was so quirky-looking, we wanted it and we cut it down. They only charged us $25 for it since it looked like a Charlie Brown tree. The trunk was crooked and branches were sparse, but that’s what we loved about it.

  27. The “imperfect” tree is perfect by the way, I love the way you designed it, as well as the ornaments you put on it. The standard “perfect” Christmas tree is all too common. It was a great deal to have it at $25 😀
