This year has been crazy busy but in the best way possible! To start with, my son got married in November! We’re so excited! Can you tell? Not to mention all the other events that happened this year. It’s been an incredible year! Now, I want to curl up under a blanket and relax. When it came time to start decorating our house for Christmas this year, I wanted it to feel warm, cozy, and relaxing.
Since I wanted this relaxed and cozy vibe I decided to switch up some of my tree decor and keep everything simple. I wanted to mix the farmhouse and boho to create a relaxed vibe. But I didn’t want to go completely neutral. It’s Christmas after all! So I chose creamy whites, green, red, silver, a little gold, a little brown, and natural wood colors.
Last year we purchased a brand new tree and I’m still in love with it. I love that the lights can switch from clear to color and have several settings. We purchased it from Home Depot. This picture does not do it justice. I really need to work on my photography! It’s 6.5 feet tall and very full.
Here’s How I Mixed Farmhouse and Boho
We kept the ornaments to a minimum: mostly balls, wooden snowflakes, pinecones, berry sprigs, and a few special ornaments. The ribbon is a creamy white with red stitching. I bought a new topper on a whim at HomeGoods. It’s very boho and shaggy. I wish it were a little bigger. Next year, I may invest in a new tree skirt but it worked for this year.
I love my mantel! The framed art in the center was made by my daughter Emily. I use it every year! The angel was a gift from my aunt. I decided to keep the greenery simple with clear lights and a natural wood bead garland. I love the simplicity of it and at night it has a warm glow.
One thing I did discover this year was that I needed some new ornaments. I fell victim to the velvet-looking DIY ornament trend. I’m so happy with how they turned out. They are gorgeous and super simple to make. I made them in forest green and rich brown. I even made a few botanical ornaments using the baby’s breath from my son’s rehearsal dinner.
The candlesticks were an incredible find this year. They are battery-operated and even have a timer. For our coffee table, I used greenery and frosted pinecones, a couple of baby’s breath ornaments, and nestled in an angel. And yes, we store our remotes here too.
This white angel is a tree topper. Todd and I bought her the year we were married. We fell in love with her and I find a place for her every year.
I love how this tree glows! I didn’t even add extra lights this year.
Mixing farmhouse and boho is so easy! Use what you have and fill in where you need to by adding natural elements, and some texture, and play with your color scheme. Don’t forget some cozy throw blankets!
