Rustic Christmas Family Room


I am so excited to be co-hosting the Holiday Home Tour 2017 with some other really amazing bloggers.  We are showcasing part of our homes that we have decorated for the Holidays.  Today I am sharing my Rustic Christmas Family Room with you.  I hope you will check out the other bloggers homes as well, you really don’t want to miss it.  You can find them all at the bottom of this post.

Let’s start with my favorite part of the room, the mantle.  I have a beautiful stone fireplace with a reclaimed beam as a mantle, truly this is what made me want to buy this house.  It’s just stunning!  The mantle is over 10 feet long and rather chunky.  So the decor that I place on it has to be large to be able to be seen, otherwise it just gets swallowed up in the enormity of everything else.  So I like to anchor the ends with a lantern and a cnadle holder.  These require some big candles which I usually purchase from Target, they have great candles.  The garland is very real looking, shhhh don’t tell anyone it’s fake!  I purchased it at a local place called Morgan House.  It was pricey (like $50!) but so worth it!

I have a thing for Santa’s, they are everywhere in my home.  Here are my two rustic Santa’s, one of them came with his own tree.  These are by far my favorite!

Then we have our reindeer.  I love these little guys.  If I had a choice on how to decorate other than with Santa’s it would be with reindeer.  In fact after Christmas is over I leave these guys up all Winter.  They are just too cute!

When I got married I was really into cross stitching.  I use to crack out projects like no other.  I created these two stockings, one for me and the other for my husband.  Then came the kids….and having a needle and a pair of scissors on my lap just wasn’t practical anymore.  I keep saying I am going to create stockings for my kiddo’s but it just hasn’t gotten done yet.  Definitely a project that weighs heavily on my mind this time of year.

Moving around the room you can see my festive plaid pillows that I got at Pottery Barn.  They are just perfect because my husband just loves plaid!  I even pulled these puppies out of storage before Thanksgiving and he didn’t give me any sass about it!  You see, my hubs has a stick rule about no Christmas decorations going up until after Thanksgiving.  I tried to put the tree up last weekend and he vetoed it, said I had to at least wait until December!  UGH!

Here is my little wooden tree.  This guy is so special to me.  He was given to us from my Mother In Law when she was downsizing and needed to purge some of her Christmas decorations.  This tree stores flat and all you have to do is move the different branches and put little tiny decorations on them and puff, an amazing tree.  I recently updated the tree skirt, got it from Target, and I just love the little Santa/Angel and Teddy Bear underneath.

Last but not least is my nativity scene.  I just love Precious Moments.  My wedding cake topper was Precious Moments.  I just think they are so cute so I could not pass up this nativity scene.  I really like the way it looks in this rustic barn setting.  You can buy the main scene and then the three kings and the 3 other animals as well.  You may notice something is missing.  We have a tradition in our house, passed down from my husbands family, that baby Jesus doesn’t go into the manger until Christmas morning.  My kids alternate who does it every year and we take a picture of them doing it.  It’s a big deal for them, even at the ages of 20 and 17!

    1. Thank you so much Melissa! I love the mantle too but man, sometimes it’s hard to decorate. Everything needs to be proportionate to it and it’s huge! haha, I am glad you like the tree. It’s pretty special to me.

    1. Jen, I can’t thank you enough for all you have done to organize it! And thank you for your kind words. That little tree is probably my favorite Christmas decoration we have!

    1. Thank you so much Tina! I really appreciate it. I love the wooden tree too. And especially because it was passed down in the family. Have a Happy Holiday!

    1. Thank you so much Emy. I love the tree too. The branches move so for storing it almost folds flat. Let me know if you figure it out!

    1. Thank you Kari! I fell in love with the mantel when we looked at the house. It was one of the reasons I wanted to buy it!

  1. You have a beautiful home, Wendy! I am in love with your reclaimed wood mantel! It is gorgeous!!! Thanks so much for taking us on the tour of your lovely home and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. Wendy, you had better hide that wooden tree when I come to visit you (some day) or it just might go missing. It is so cute. Love it and your home looks gorgeous. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2018!

  3. All of your decor is gorgeous, but your fireplace is my favorite! I love the gray stone and wooden mantle! It’s like my dream fireplace! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home!

    1. Oh my Sarah, thank you so much for your sweet words! The fireplace was definitely the best selling feature of the home, that’s for sure. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
