Farmhouse Style Christmas Tree

I created a Farmhouse style Christmas mantel in the family room this I tried to carry on the theme when I decorated the trees on each side of the fireplace.

Here's how the mantel looks.....

Let's look around the tree......

At the bottom of the tree I have Santa and his sleigh.....

Santa has the kindest eyes.......

And he is dressed in a black velvet suit......

One of the beautiful white farm horses is pulling the sleigh .....

I have white and black buffalo ribbon on the mantel,  so I wanted to add touches of black to the white tree......

mercury glass ornaments......

a white glitter deer head.......

plenty of bling......

Bird seed ornaments.....

Pale pink roses.......

And  crocheted table runners are  my garland......

This is the tree that sits to the side of the family room dining area.

    I have decorated the two small "outdoor" white trees very simply that sit to the side of my main tree 

This is the view from my chair that I  sit in to watch TV and write all my blog posts....

I have started to edit some of my photo's that I took at our grand daughters wedding,   but we had a professional photographer and I am waiting to see the photo's that he took before I do a post.

See you soon with the photo's of the trees on the other side of the fireplace and how everything looks all put together!


  1. WOW! Before I married in 2001, my home was more Victorian/feminine but I changed it so it wasn't as fru fru. I love your fru fru including all the whisps of vintage trims tucked in the tree. What a great idea!

  2. So being in a magical Christmas fairyland. Very cute idea using crocheted table runners for the tree garland. Gorgeous decorations. Judy
